@vintagelife, This is awesome! Guys, I've been a member across the street for a while, as well as a 2 other shaving forums, so when I say it is very rare to have a member make a limited edition soap, believe me. First we had the Green mountain soap pass around, now this, y'all we are very lucky to be part of this forum. Thanks again Dan!

Thanks! I would not be able to make these soaps if I didn't have people to share them with. They will be shipping out to Jayaruh this week.
Hello all. The soaps will be making their way to you soon. They are freshly made and wont be done curing for 3 weeks from today. However, you can use them immediately. I have lathered my pucks from each batch. They lather fine and wont irritate the skin. All the lye has been converted to soap. The soaps will get better as they age though.
The one problem I haven't figured out yet is scent loss. I don't use chemicals or perfumes. Only real essential oils. They are volatile and will oxidize and fade if left out. If you want to keep the scent in your soap, immediately after receiving it, either wrap it in plastic, or put it in an air tight container. The scent should last a lot longer this way. I need your input and help on this. If your soap looses its scent, please post so on this thread. I want to see how long they last if they are kept out of open air. Hopefully this makes them keep longer.
This was a fun project and I thank you all for participating. Not many other forums have their own dedicated soap for members. Enjoy!

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?

ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
