I'm not a soap hoarder with a cabinet filled with them.  I generally stick to SV and TOBS with Proraso or Coate's for traveling.  But hey, it's Cleveland, tallow, at a good price, and comes highly recommended.

If it's horrible, y'all are in big trouble.   Tongue

Thanks for your purchase!  Just make sure to give them enough water, and you'll be fine.  All the butters make them thirsty.  The goat's milk formula (used in the fern with the black label) is even thirstier. Don't be afraid to give it water - it can take it.  I soak my brush, give it a tiny squeeze, and then load for 30-40 seconds.  Work it for maybe a minute or so, and it will thicken and build some volume. Hit us up if you have trouble.

I tried Shannon Soaps for the first time today (Forest City Fern), and I liked it a lot.  Good performance, loved the scent, and the price was good.  The Forest City Fern is a bit more expensive than most of their soaps, but still a good value in comparison with other soaps I like (T&H, TOBS, SV).  I also bought Barber Shop, which is even less expensive, and which I'll try tomorrow.  I assume the performance will be identical with just a different scent.

Glad you liked the fern!  Recent versions (black label) do have a formula that is different from our standard line of soaps (it has goat milk and some other goodies, hence the higher price).  Since you liked the fern though, I don't think the Barbershop will disappoint as far as performance.  Scent is always YMMV.
