About Ol’ Kentucky Formula T Shaving Soap
This artisan shaving soap is handmade in small batches. Wet Shaving Products set out to make a shave soap that is super slick, super easy to lather, has great cushion, and gives a great post shave feel. Made with tallow, shea butter, and a long cure time, this is one of the best shave soaps for your money!
The story of Formula T began with WSPs owner’s obsession with tallow soaps. After perfecting his Rustic Shave Soap formula, he set out to make the best damned tallow-based shave soap possible. He was inspired by the great American soap makers of the 19th and 20th century. They used tallow. The most widely regarded soaps from Britain and Europe also contained tallow. In fact, some people still believe that shave soap isn’t good shave soap unless it is made with tallow.
Inspired by Mitchell’s Wool Fat & Tabac, he set out to make something so great it is able to withstand the test of time. So, taking all the working knowledge and science he learned from creating the Rustic line, he started experimenting. Unlike his research and development with the Rustic line, he pretty much nailed it on the first formulation. After a few tweaks, he sent it off for beta testing. The feedback was stellar! Everyone loved it. And the rest, as they say, is history.
While this is considered a “soft soap” versus a much denser and firmer soap, like a triple-milled puck soap, this soap is more dense than the average soft soap because WSP allows for extra curing time so that more water evaporates. Due to the density of this soap, you’ll get many, many shaves out of a single 4.7 oz tin.
About the Ol Kentucky scent
This scent is a personal favorite of Brian, the owner of Guido’s Grooming Co. According to WSP, Ol’ Kentucky is a rich, creamy, & subtle scent crafted with bourbon at its core. They started the blend with top notes of bourbon and base notes of oak, sandalwood, and a hint of patchouli and powder. The official drink of the Kentucky Derby; this fragrance epitomizes the spirit of Ol’ Kentucky.
Also available with a matching shave oil and aftershave.
