    The Castle F. (Lime) version is one of my permanent creams, great performer and for me a really nice post-shave feeling on the skin afterward. Really fond of the scent too, especially if I'm in the mood for a straight up Lime scent.

    I'm glad you mentioned Czech & Speak because I was thinking of buying this expensive soap (in the fancy metal bowl) but you don't hear too much about it. Sold! Do you have a preference of scent? There are 2, maybe 3?

    Hop,
    I prefer the Oxford and Cambridge version. I'm not sure you really need the fancy bowl. I opted to use one of my own bowls for it.

    Ed, my friend, you have a point there. Now you have me thinking about buying the bowl, especially since Czech & Speak soap is a keeper in my humble shave den. Me and my big mouth.

    My Czech and Speake arrived yesterday, just got the refill pucks, have plenty of bowls (some left over from the Tier #2 and the unmentionable Tier #3 category) - the 88 and the O&C, and they smell fantastic, just trying to decide on what straight razor to use, the Henckels #14 or the Dorko #14, and the 88 or the Eton...can't wait.

    New soaps complete me....

    I'm with Ed because I suffer from chronic fancypants-itus. Even though I walk around town in ripped jeans and beer t-shirts, I'm a dandy at heart. O&C scent it is!

    I have the C&S fancy bowl. To call it a "shave bowl" is like calling a Ferrari just another car. It's machined Aluminum with Engine Turning and anodized and weighs at least a pound.

    We have so much trouble deciding on tier one soaps now Obie comes along and makes trouble with second tier too.

    Well - it certainly lathers well, as to the scent on the C&S 88, I can't tell, the badger stink just won't seem to leave my M&F brush; hence, it is soaking in some vinegar and water now...never really appreciated how horrible that smells, just overcomes and destroys all in it's path....

    Gentlemen,

    As I think about more products I have used, I'll include them in the grouping. The initial post included products I could remember at the time I wrote the post. At this age, I have a circus of senior moments.
