I came across Crabtree & Evelyn Nomad soap yesterday being sold in puck form, so I bought it and a little plastic container for it in the shop next door.
I've been shaving with my Merkur Slant for the last week and a half using a variety of soaps and creams, and have been quite happy with it - no nicks, though quite a few alum stings.
Today I tried the Merkur Slant with the Nomad soap, and was very pleasantly surprised - none of the alum stings I'd expected were there.
I was impressed.
I also have the Crabtree & Evelyn Nomad shaving cream which I had found to be very good and nearly as slippery as my Trumper's shaving cream. So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised at the very good performance of the soap version of Nomad.
