Somehow this razor (both the silver and black) have the perfect weight for me and give me a great shave. The black coating has held up well for a long time and the silver looks great too.
My wife surprised me for Christmas with a Royal Fortune Whaler Shaving Brush. The Shaving Brush is Superior. I am now a loyal customer for my Shaving needs from Black Ship Grooming. Thank You
I love BSG products and I want to like this one, but the apple component seems to overpower the other notes like the smoke and black pepper. And, it could last longer, like most of the other BSG scents that I have,
Very comfortable shave, nice fragrance, I even bought one for my grandson, will purchase again thanks for a great product
And digging it! This is another of my purchases of Black Ship' s products; Cap'n Darkside is the other. Siren's Song is another sample of a great company's products. Great lather and scent, great after shave, and provides a great shave!
Very fresh, bright fresh orange scent with just enough spice for balance. A great choice.
The only issue I have (and it is my fault) is that shipping it in extreme heat is problematic. Glad that you guys taped the lid on it so well.
This is a lovely rose scent splash. It leaves your skin feeling great with a brilliant post shave feel. The scent is really nice & not what I would call feminine. Subtle yet smart sums it up.
The package smelled great. Unfortunately the aftershave had broken during shipping. I know stuff like this happens, but I’ve sent two emails and haven’t had a response. Hope this is a one off, because I really like the products I’ve purchased this time and in the past.
Sean, We apologize for this and have sent out a replacement for you. We've been working out some kinks in our phone system that has been sending all calls to spam. We usually pick up if we're not with a customer already. Every customer is important to us and we will correct this for you.
Like many of you, I've tried A LOT of soaps and aftershaves after taking up wet shaving ( I went "all in" on it and have used a straight razor for at least 5 years now).. The hardest part after learning to use the razor, has been finding a really good soap (and Black Ship has been my favorite from the moment I tried their products) that didn't have a "heavy" scent.
My wife has a very sensitive nose, and barely tolerates even a simple scent and I'm not a fan of having "a scent". I was playing with making my own aftershave because of this, and found that some sort of scent is more or less necessary because of the ingredients in the base. This was extra frustrating because BSG aftershave base is also my runaway favorite. Thank Goodness for Port Royal! Light scent that fades quickly AND I get all the benefits of BSG soap and aftershave products.. HOW could that get better?
FREEBOOTER SHAVING SOAP! It's everything I'd hoped it would be!
Great lather, super smooth shave, easy rinse from the blade and all in a scent-free
Thank You Black Ship!!
I'm glad to see that Freebooter was hit for you. We try to cover all the bases and we understand that not everyone needs or wants to have a scented soap. 'Thank you for your feed back and we hope that you get a lot of great shaves!
Stay Savvy my friend,
Love the citrus scent. Great lather. Love the new palm bowls!
Can also use wasail after shave with Tew shave soap.
thank you for the review. We're really excited to see that you like th enew palm bowls. It was our goal to get a functional jar when we set out to source our new shaving soap jars. we think the new hjars hit that mark and it's great to get your feedback on it.
Stay Savvy my friend,
More floral than I had in mind, that being said the scent is fresh and clean. Easy to wake up to in the morning. As with all Black Ship products I've used, it lathers wonderfully.
I like to try new flavor each year and this been a pleasant one. Light coffee smell and great lather to get ship shape for the day.
I truly enjoy this scent and soap and not just due to the name. the name drew me in, the quality of the product has kept me. the refreshing citrus smell and great shave I get with it keeps me coming back
I ordered this beard oil because I needed something to help take care of my beard. Since using it nightly, my beard has softened (it used to be a bit more scraggly). The scent is great, both my wife and I love it.
She also pointed out that the mix for the beard oil can also be used to help the cuticles of my nails. Not sure if it’s done much for me, since I was my hands after, but that was a nice little bonus.
I have very mixed feelings about Captain's Reserve. This is the first shaving cream I tried from Black Ship. In fact, it's the first anything I tried.
First the good. It smells FANTASTIC!!! This is perfect for the hot season. It smells like a refreshing tropical drink. It's wonderful.
Now the bad. The cream arrived dried out. I am having to use it like a soap. It's not a cream at all. Next, I tried to contact Black Ship about this and to date, I have received no response.
Now for the I don't know. The fragrance that is so special, is already almost gone, after only a couple of weeks. It is possible if it wasn't so dried out, the fragrance might last much longer. Secondly, the performance is fair. I have sensitive skin and I prefer a product with plenty of lubrication to give me a close, but comfortable shave. This too, might be much better if the product wasn't dried out.
My opinion is definitely middle of the road. The product has DEFINITE possibilities, but I don't think I would buy it again if this is the normal consistency.
Im going to reach out to you to about this. I would like to get more information on this.
This soap is a good value and smells great. I prefer to load from the tub but I wouldn’t recommend it with this soap. You can if you want to but you will waste product. The shave is quite good, the shea and kokum butters leave your face feeling soft and supple. A nice soap with a good scent, protection, and glide. A good value for your money.
I would always suggest to lad your brush conservatively at first until you get use to how much to load with our soaps.
A nice splash that has a longer lasting powdery lavender scent. Enjoyable to use and your face feels nice and refreshed afterward. It has a nice menthol kick to top it off. A good value.
