Sunday morning’s Grand Freeze:

Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Canadian Tech/Wilkinson Sword day 5
Stirling Glacial Electric Sheep SS
Prep ASB
Floid Vigoroso AS Splash

Oh my God, it’s so hot here in Montreal - the temperature is in the 90s so I needed all the menthol chill I could get and believe me, I got tons of it this morning. The Glacial Electric Sheep soap smells delightful - it has the same lovely lemony/citronella/eucalyptus scent as the regular version along with strong menthol fumes, the lather is brilliant - it’s so rich, slick and protective thanks to the mutton tallow formula, the menthol sensation is strong enough to freeze a polar bear’s ass off, and the skincare is A1. The Prep delivered lots of soothing, cooling moisturizing, and the Floid Vigoroso aftershave has such a beautiful old school barbershop scent along with lots of menthol goodness. Three passes left me mega BBS - what a dynamite shave this was!

Enjoy your Sunday - be well and safe!

Excellent questions, my good man Euro

Q/A 1: I’ve found that grating Mitchell’s makes for an easier, heavier load which generates a fuller, richer lather. Already reading your mind. Yes, I could use a boar brush and load the crap out of it (Wink tip of the hat to you TC), but I’m successful doing it this way. It works, and I don’t mind breaking out the ol’ grater once in a while. Cleans the cheese out.

Q/A 2: I can use a wider aperture jar which makes for an easier, heavier load thereby generating a fuller, richer lather which increases my fun and enjoyment. And can’t use some of that nowadays Biggrin It also makes my Simpson CH3 and Thater 4125 viable brush options.

@chazt - right on.  Very much found the same.  I grated up a puck of a similar soap - Haslinger Schafsmilch - a couple of years back, and this soap simply explodes into lather of high quality in no time at all.  It is, however, the tallow formulation.

Hi, Tom. I’ve not tried the Haslinger soaps. You’ve piqued my interest..
