As Ron mentioned in an earlier post, a great time was had by all at the Central Oklahoma shave-in and breakfast meeting. The key outcome for me was being introduced to Trumper's hard shaving soaps. I've been using mostly creams because I felt like I could got a richer, more efficacious lather from them vs the hard soap I've tried in the past. After a brief presentation and tutorial from Ron, and the purchase of a wooden bowl filled with Trumper's violet soap, I was set for this morning's shave.
I must say, following the instructions provided, it produced a rich, slick, wonderful lather on par with my creams!! I had plenty of lather for my four passes and a little blade buff at the end. I'll now be working soaps into my rotation as well and am currently looking for more cabinet space in the shaving room (commonly called bathroom by some).
The presentation of the five fragrance houses was tremendous and filled out my Christmas wish list. We'll be electing officers next meeting so join us if you can!!
