Some soaps were developed more or less for barbers. I recently fell in love with Klarīs Kabinett after I got hold of a sample from a fellow member. Now I am waiting to get both Klarīs Klassik and 500 grams of the Kabinett.
Klarīs has been around since 1840 and although they got several shaving soaps the Kabinett was made for barbers. Itīs a pretty hard soap and it comes in two sticks (250 grams each). Made me wonder..
Does anyone have a theory of how the old fashioned barbers dealt (deal) with these pretty big sticks? Did they build up lather directly from the stick or did they use it as shaving stick on the customerīs face? OR did they cut a big slice and tossed it into a shaving mug? I thought it would be fun to have a discussion on the topic.
