Well, it's not the end of the World as we know it and let us be intellectually honest here in acknowledging that while it is a fine soap there are countless entry level artisans making soap at least as good and many better nowadays. Life goes on.
i would rather pay 50p for a fine, widely available soap than £20 + for some gloryfied melt& pour... faking exclusivity, thats only available online , thus sealing the death nell of my local high st & furthering the grip of online sales giant corporations ,, but then i,m just a simple yorkshire lad

There are other soaps I can use in it's place but it's a soap that I have a lot of enthusiasm towards not just because it is a superb soap at any price, but it was the first one I ever used alongside a Wilkinson Sword brush.

I'm sure I'm not the only person who's introduction into wet shaving was formed around such a combination, it'll be a shame that future wet shavers will not have that at their availability but things go on, I'm sure future wet shavers are more likely to buy their selections for their first steps into wet shaving online so will have a much wider choice of items.

As for other cheap soaps, there are quite a few that can be bought online which are a little more expensive in comparison but are still solid performers nonetheless including Arko, and if you're buying bulk Vitos Green & Red are just over £10 for a kilo brick of soap.

I'm sorry to hear that Palmolive stick is discontinued, it is another blow to the traditional, old-school shaving, also it was a good performing quality product at a very reasonable price. This raises the question of; What about Wilkinson Sword stick and Speick stick? Their looks and performances are similar, I hope at least they won't axe the other two

Palmolive isn't being discontinued but it's not going to directly imported to the UK. I presume it is still being manufactured in Germany, and I imagine third party retailers may import it at sometime (eg Connaught). As for Speick and the WS stick, I have no idea if they will be axed or not. I hope not, they are both superb soaps!

Yep, it's just not going to the wide retail channel in the UK by the look of it. In the same way high street shops in Europe hardly stock MWF which is a fiver in Jon Lewis. Shame as it is a product with a small environmental footprint.

Saying that WilkiSword blue bowl of death is now in a manly black container, not sure if they made it better or not.

Just been for a beer run at my local asda, no palmolive stick or Wilkinson brush on the shaving shelf. :cry:They have started stocking brut aftershave now, so silver linings and all that :)
