    Default No full sized replacement pucks of Czech & Speake No 88?

    Has anyone seen a vendor with the full sized pucks of C&S #88 in stock?

    I can source the three travel sized pucks and the full sized soap with the hideously expensive dish - but the replacement puck appears to be out-of-stock everywhere.

    The C&S site had them in stock recently, I just think they are difficult to keep in inventory. Not enough supply to meet demand. That being said, I don't think London's has had them in a while

    C&S here only has the soap/dish, not the refills, and this has been the case for several weeks now. I sincerely hope this is not a suggestion of yet another reformulation pending!

    Am I missing something or does C&S really get $168 for the soap and bowl shipped to the USA? 25 pounds to ship? I have some of the soap in a generic wood bowl, purchased a while back, and while it is "interesting" it ain't worth 10 sticks of Sir Irisch Moos ..

    Well, this would be one soap that I'd hope would hurry down the shoot, eh? Still seems like a scam, but hey, that's why we have

    Have you tried Cambridge chemists google them ! In my humble opinion that soap and their O&C are worth every cent ! but then again twenty years ago I would have been happy with a lesser soap !
    ENJOY YOUR SHAVE !

    My Google-fu is pretty strong and the two official US distributors (Cambridge Chemist and the place in LA) have the puck/dish and three travelers - no full size replacement pucks. I think that I am going to just buy the triplets.

    Also interesting: the O&C full size puck that the company will sell you for an obscene shipping charge can be had off Amazon - from C&S - for the normal affordable shipping. Distribution channels and shipping costs continue to amaze me, but that is a subject covered ad-nausea elsewhere

    Do not attempt to use the Cambridge chemists website, call the store directly.
