    well i just used my arko stick for the first time. i ordered 3 sticks for $10 shipped to my U.S. address and face lathered with the stick....the scent is kinda strong but i dont mind it...kind of a strong ivory soap type smell...but the lather was really nice. i can see the attraction for a cheap soap that has a nice lather. i will probably place mine into one of those push up plastic containers that are used to make your own stick since i dont really like the paper-wrapper type presentation.

    overall i like it.

    Just ordered a couple sticks for my brother and I to try. About $9 for two of them, shipped, off of ebay.

    On Amazon, you can get a stick of Arko and an alum block for just under $11 shipped. Perfect for those who want to try both with minimal investment.

    i noticed that shave sticks work better when there is some stubble on the face....i shave 6 days per week and usually that doesnt leave a large amount of stubble....sunday night is when i have two days stubble and is a better night for shave sticks. so far i have tried arko and de vergulde hand, palmolive, and latoja sticks.

    all nice stuff.

    I use Arko 99% of the time, not because it is cheap, but because it is good, well also because it is cheap.

    Just use it like it was meant to be, face lather, and the scent keeps the mozzies at bay.

    The scent isn't that bad and the lather is well worth it.

    I don't agree about it being cheap though - the soap itself is cheap, but my face is so smooth I'm going to have to take it into town tonight and pour beer into it.
    You don't agree about it being cheap?
