@Baylorgator, Speick comes to mind. I rate both soap and cream very high in all aspects. For me it was also a great value as I picked up this “drug store “ product in a Drug Store in Germany.

About 10 plus years ago I started buying lots of stuff but one day I had flashbacks of a lecture about inventory cost ... and I’ve been working through that stash ever since. So, I missed the artisan craze; but, enjoy it vicariously through your posts and others in forums. And, there are a few I will try soon, but no more than 2 at any time.

One other point. I’m pretty much a value guy. My results are just as good with a can of Foamy or Musgo Real cream. Thus I gravitate to value products and avoid the really high end stuff. Still enjoy reading about it though..

Put on your list of soaps to test PAA CK6 I think you just might like it.

Randy.....thanks again for this thread.  Extremely helpful.

Also want to echo your support of Cella soap.  Possibly the most underrated/overlooked soap in shavedom.

Makes sense to me. On another forum we like to say “technique trumps tools”. In other words, if you’re not getting a great shave, don’t blame your soap, blades, or other gear; it’s likely operator error. Can you get the same results with value soaps as others? Yup! I just enjoy each for what they are.

I really want to like PAA. Just haven’t found the right one. Maybe that one is the ticket...

Thanks, Ron. I’m amazed at what folks pay for soaps like ABC and Boellis when I’d bet dollars to donuts, they couldn’t tell them apart from Cella in a blind test. (No offense to ABC or Boellis lovers).

Next up: Wickham. This one provided a nice creamy lather with more than adequate slickness and cushion. It provided the creamy density I prefer for a DE shave and also allowed me to add water to make it slicker for a straight shave without getting bubbly or thin and falling apart. In short, it does everything a good soap should do. Although I didn’t find it lacking In area of performance, it also didn’t really stand out in any particular way in order to make it as one my favorites. Having said that, I will also say that the scent (English Rose) was extremely well done, and smelled exactly like you were sniffing a bouquet of roses. Not too strong or overdone and very natural. That’s hard to find. If you find a scent you really like, I can see how this soap could be a favorite.
