Introducing our new silk tallow base with our most unique Midnight Stag fragrance.
While we still stand behind our OG base 100% and do not currently have plans to discontinue it, it has been five years since it was released and it was time to create a more modern shaving soap formula.
We tested ingredient after ingredient racking up fifty-six test batches before we settled on this one. The main secret is a massive amount of silk hydrolysate which is a very conditioning, natural, film-forming agent which is used in a lot of anti-aging creams (anti-aging statement not evaluated by the FDA, Yaya, yadda, etc).
Some of my testers reported feeling a skin tightening sensation - be aware that this is the film left by the silk hydrolysate.
For best results, load soaking wet brush for 40 seconds in the tub, then build lather on wet face for an additional minute.

This one is masculine. Like really, really masculine. Like a “take an old, beat up leather jacket, drape it over a couple of tires to make a table and clean your guns on it” kind of masculine. Dark, unrefined, and totally unresistible, this is a scent for those who don’t mind sticking out. Those who forge the paths. Those who are proud to be a man.
Scent is made of the following notes: Russian Leather, Motor Oil, Hoppes #9, Birch Tar, Oakmoss, Gasoline, Smoke, Cedar, Cade, Bergamot, Vanilla
Natural extracts and essential oils were used where possible, but some notes – such as Hoppes #9 and rubber are synthetic due to the nature of the scent.
4oz of tallow based soap in a plastic tub (4" diameter and 2" tall).
The tub is oversized (designed for 6oz can hold 8oz if filled to the brim) to allow for easy loading of your shaving brush while making less mess.
The soap lathered quickly and excellently.
Little too strong for my taste but doesn’t smell bad just not for me. As far as the product is concerned other than the smell it works great and is a good product. I really preferred the ghost town barber to this. It has a really clean smell to it!
I'm completely satisfied. From lather, fragrance and the smoothness of the shave. I'm glad I tried this and I highly recommend it. Great job!
Love the scent, reminds me of being in the shop (although not the wife's favorite). As others have noted, provides a slick shave, but does not lather nearly as well as the original base.
I love all your products. I meant to get one of the midnight stag and one of the ghost town barber. The error was probably mine
