Your favourite tallow soap

  1. To me? Slickness, stability of the lather, residual slickness, and scent.

    With DE - same same most tallow soaps did equally well

    With Straight Razor - Haslinger all the way

    (judging technical performance only ie lather - not artistic aka scent :) )

    Anything made by Valobra: particularly Valobra Stick, Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge and the sadly discontinued Art Of Shaving Sandalwood. In second place, Cella.

  6. There is a lot of love for Valobra on the forum. I found czech and speake to be an amazing soap with a lot of protection and excellent post shave feel.

    Ever since I tried Pannacrema Pure2O, I completely surrendered to it. The DFS scent is not quite my thing, but damn, I can't seem to stop using this stuff, it's that good. The post shave is the only thing I don't find superb, it's only very good.

    Surprisingly, I don't see many comments on this soap, I believe people see it as a poor relative to the Nuavia series. Well, it's not poor at all.

    7 to 10 days.
    You need to load heavy but it's probably the best performing soap I own.

    I don't understand why Valobra doesn't market their own version of the vintage AOS Sandalwood soap(?). :confused: Meanwhile, I am waiting on a Haslinger Spa Sandalwood puck I just ordered as I have become a rabid convert in using their Schafmilch. That said, there are several great tallow soaps today. Far more than there were 75 yrs. ago I'd wager. Too many to list.

    Hey buddy what's doin,

    Yep, that soap's so good to huff that I pound some extra lather up my nose when finished shaving. Easy to tell when to stop loading....when my brain starts to sting is a good indication. Smell that all day....my little secret and you should try it!!!

    Not to enable you or anyone else of course, but this recent Old Spice refill acquisition is similar to the RL as far as how easy the lather's created and how dense it is. Neither are triple mill hard but rather a little softer than most older soaps which makes loading the brush a snap. Not a bad fallback, since the Safari has been tough to find for a while now.

    Type at you later,

    Martin

    I have the Safari AS and EDT to go with the soap, but I might try snorting the lather at some point.

    You have reminded of the OS.
    Just lined it up for tonights shave - Thanks

    ...I have come to enjoy all of the mainstream european hard tallow soaps that I have used - DRH, Tabac, Haslinger, Valobra, Palmolive, Speick, Arko, Lea etc. and a fair few of the Italian tallow croaps. My favourite tallow soap changes from time to time but at the moment DRH and Arko are the ones I find myself reaching for the most. With the periodic reformulation of soaps resulting in fewer mainstream hard tallow shaving soaps and now only a handful of tripple milled tallow soaps, I find myself stocking up, probably irrationally, on DRH and Tabac and I am now stocking up on Lea Classic before it is finally gone. The artisan tallow soaps do not offer me the same performance, consistency or value although I find some of the scents just terrific.
