    It does have to be expensive for great soaps, it doesn't hurt but try Arko , smells like a urinal cake to me but it lathers. Tabac is another great lathering soap, Institute Karitte, on to the really good stuf, MDC, Castle Forbes, any if these will get you what you want without trying to fix the other soaps lack of lather.

    Detman,
    I like it, thanks for sharing. I was with the Combat Engineers in Nam, we had a saying; If it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid.

    I think "ARKO" is the soap that came with my shave set.
    I didn't use it until the other night because it smelled so rank in the package.
    I put it aside for storage and emergency backup usage and went out to walmart and bought the Van Der Hagen Luxury Soap to shave with. That's the one that is so thin that it dries up and washes away like water.

    I tried the Soap Puck that came with my shave set this past saturday night and it was MUCH better than the van der hagen soap!! It had more slipperiness and didn't dry up and disappear as fast. I still added a flick of coconut oil to it just in case (didn't want to chance razor burn again) and it lathered and lubricated just fine. The horrible smell mellowed out to something cheap but tolerable too!! I was truly surprised...I thought my head was going to smell like old fish if I used that soap puck.

    I will be starting off with some of the TABAC soap from Amazon this week.
    Each one that doesn't slick-lather enough to work for shaving my head will get used for body soap until I find the one that works for me.

    THANK YOU for the info and soap lineup!!

    Ah Fort Detrick....I remember one night back in the 70's we had to lock that place down. Some foreign scientist was trying to escape with the smallpox virus they had stored there. Was a real eye opener to the US Government about terrorism, foreign policy, and security measures. The CIA got caught with their pants down on that one. Good luck to you at that place!

    Hah...sounds a bit like what's happened here since I've been stationed here.
    So many "Little Things" that they don't put out in the news or papers or internet.
    If the public only knew...it's crazy.
