Duke Cannon Soap

Duke Cannon Soap

It’s a 10 ounce bar, five inches long, and “smells like victory”…Made in USA, not from France.

I began looking for soap that contained no lard or pork products, as I’m trying to keep the Torah laws. If that’s more religion-y than you’d like, please wander over to Joel’s Gulch or Adaptive Curmudgeon’s blogs- they’re excellent and I recommend them heartily.

Still there? Here we go.

I’ve used up one of these bars of soap, and I like it just fine. It has a pleasant smell, and it’s filled with (a few) steel cut grains to help scrape you clean. It was really odd at first, but very pleasant. The only thing that wasn’t just fine is the size- it may be too large for your soap dish. But it’s a fine soap and I’m going to start using it regularly.

A few other drawbacks-it’s pretty spendy at nearly nine bucks a bar, and their marketing is a bit over the top. I half expected to come out of the shower looking like a Viking or wolverine, having read all the propaganda on their website: unfortunately, I’m still a short fat guy with less hair than I’d like. Sigh.

If you don’t care about the price (I’ll need two bars a month) it’s great soap, and I recommend it because I’m keeping Torah.

If you’re not keeping Torah, or you’re just more thrifty than I am, head to the local Mega-Lo-Mart and buy what they’ve got. It works fine, too.
