Anyone heard anything?  Inventory is non-existent on his site, many soaps are completely sold out....

Not that I'm aware.
Perhaps he's taking a break.
Unprecedented times.

Agreed, hopefully that's all it is.

I see a number of items in-stock, though not a full catalogue. It makes sense to reduce surplus during a time when people may be purchasing less.

That thread title though...

Agreed about the thread title... And reducing surplus... I wouldn't want to offer my speculation about what this particular awesome vendor, or any other, might be facing, because I'm sure I'd be wrong.

Really guys?  Worst case here is that there will be a wave of panic buying, help him sell more product.

Yes, really?!
No need to jump to conclusions; the last thing we need to encourage right now is more panic buying. 

That said, I just received an email this morning about Oliva restock:

I also received the email from CRSW that all four of its Oliva soaps are back in stock.

I respect Larry tremendously.
CRSW doesn't need hype or misinformation in order to generate sales.

It’s a tough business.

I bought 15-16 CRSW soaps from Larry 3-4 years ago now.
I still have 8-9 of them in my cupboard unopened.
Only finished 2 or 3 of them.

CRSW makes great shaving soaps.
But so do other manufacturers.

I figured it's time.

Never tried Cold River Soaps before, although I've been reading lots of fine things about them for a really long time.  So, I checked out the website, and hit send.  The selection was a bit limited with some sold out, but I found 4 that look like the type I will love.

The arrived today.  Here are some snaps.

Nice haul, David.  You did well trying all three of his soap bases - Oliva, Select and Glide.

You’re an enabler... I like it. Wink
I’ve been trying to hold out until the schapenmelk was I stock, but I don’t know if that a usual thing to be available or if I’d be forever on hold. I’ll never say no to trying some new soap though.

I’ve never forgotten this little ditty from Mad Magazine.

“Ringo, Paul, George and John
Played a trick and put us on.
Dropped hints Paul was dead as nails
And rocketed their record sales!”

A fine clean shaven lot they are!

If this thread is real, then as Marshall Tucker Band wrote:

I'm gonna take a freight train, down at the station

I don't care where it goes
Gonna climb me a mountain, the highest mountain
Jump off, nobody gonna know


CRSW is my go to soap. Don't know what I'd do if I could not buy CRSW.
