I love the convenience of a stick to still work in a wet shave on work days. I’m a big fan of stixx esp with the face lather technique and each offer their own unique quirk to the stubble bubble selection. It has a more modern smell than Palmolive and definitely not as institutional as a Derby or Arko. I would put it more in the realm of Speick’s stick for its somewhat spicier scent & post shave feel. A bit pricey on this side of the pond, but I’m glad I have it in my den & BullGoose is an exceptional vendor in both shipping & communication. Buy with confidence, Gents.
I normally use hard soaps, I haven't found a cream I've liked since the old Palmolive Brushless and I wanted a better option for traveling. I ordered the Wilkinson Sword and Valobra and a couple twist up containers for them. It took a couple of tries to figure out the best way to apply it but both brands lather up very well and give good quality lather with plenty of cushion and glide. I do like the scent of Wilkinson's product better. I had a little trouble drilling a hole freehand for the stick in the travel container, I think grating it up and pressing it into the container (as others have said) is a more effective option, especially since the stick is smaller diameter than the containers I bought.
I've been wet shaving for several years and came back to Phil's site looking for a Palmolive shave stick. Phil indicated that he was out and it looked like every other North American vendor had also been cut off. He recommended this Wilkinson stick and I'm glad he did. It's very similar to the Palmolive, albeit with a different, more masculine scent. This soap lathers very well and provides an excellent shave. I travel a lot for work and am biased toward shave sticks as a result. Considering the price point, this is one of the best sticks I've encountered. I don't think you can go wrong with it.
I am new to wet shaving (about one month in), and the Wilkinson Sword Shave Stick is the first stick-soap that I've used. I have used Proraso's white cream as well, and I find the Wilkinson Sword stick to be superior. Part of my issue with the Proraso soap turned out to be my own poor technique (I was over-hydrating the soap and it was foaming and losing slickness). However, even after improving my technique with the Proraso cream, I would stay say the Wilkinson Sword Shave Stick is the better buy. It provides better cushion and slickness, is cheaper, easy to travel with, and has a fantastic scent.
Wilks. is the best of the sticks. I have tried most of them in this price range and it produces a slick and creamy lather with a pleasant scent. Good for grating and pressing into a mug or bowl. Palmolive takes 2nd place.
