After 5-6 seconds of lathering:

After about 15 more seconds:

It’s very dense, slick and moisturizing 

What a fun project this has turned out to be!

Sorry for the delay - all of the samples will ship to the confirmed testers tomorrow. Hannah had some Algebra 1 hiccups she needed to overcome earlier this week. So she just finished the last batches last night.

Also, for anyone I have corresponded with via PM and confirmed you as a tester, can you please make sure you have sent me your shipping address (for her samples) and your email address (for the questions she will need you to answer per sample).

Thanks!

Jason & Hannah

9 testers with 7 samples per envelope are being sent Hannah’s creations tomorrow. We misspoke in the original post, the samples are 40-50 grams each for the most part. A few are small and a few are really large - but all will get at least 2 Shaves (some probably 15-20 Shaves each) - I realized that when I was typing and Hannah was talking that sending 20oz of Shaving soap to 9 people would be a LOT of shaving soap! LoL

Hannah is so excited for you all to try her soaps! But she wants honest and straightforward data from the testers otherwise the science is “no good” according to her. Smile lol

The samples arrived today. Does Hannah have a preferred order we should use when testing? If not I'll just start with #1.

Shave 1 is in the books. Will start the questionnaire, however I won’t comment publicly so as to not influence other testers.

Yr obdnt srvnt had volunteered off-list, via PM, and was under the impression that his volunteer message had come in to Boonie21 after the deadline, so ... oh, well.

Therefore, when my bride went to the mailbox today and there was a package from a Hannah, with a Georgia(!) return address (we know only one friend who lives in Georgia, and her name is not Hannah), there was a reasonable basis for her to demand an explanation, which I was at a loss to provide.  (It did not take me long to solve the puzzle after I opened the envelope.)

I intend to try the soaps in reverse numerical order, for no reason other than to be contrary to the order of the other testers.

Hannah approves reverse order testing for you in honor of your bride Smile lol!

Hannah is having fun with this! Keep the jokes, posts and pics coming and she will see each one!

But also let’s keep it about her project as well. Smile

Great point! Let’s give it at least 14 days before performance comments publicly, lather pics should be fine in the meantime Smile

If you want to share feedback privately with Hannah during the testing process, just shoot me a PM or email please and I will share with her.

Great lather shot, Ricardo. Is that your Maggard Granite brush? I’ve decided to use only 2 essentially similar brushes for this testing. A CH2 Super 3-band and a Bob Quinn/ER Lotus style, Lignum Vitae handle with a transplanted CH2 Super knot.

As a general rule I don’t take/post lather shots or SOTDs, perhaps I should, but that’s not me...

It is indeed a Maggard Granite, and I'll be using it to test Hannah's soaps.   We're doing two shaves with each sample, so using two brushes works also.  I know that Bob Quinn/Simpson  brush is  unique and special.

I got my samples last night and shaved with sample number 1 this morning.  I will be keeping notes for Hannah.  Nothing in this thread until the entire test is completed.
