Which scent mate? I’ve been eying off the All Things Nice one
I did get that scent. The wife chose that and its pretty good. Sweet scent with loads of caramel, honey etc. Kinda like jersey caramel lollies to me.

Good slickness and whips up pretty easy using synth, boar or badger.

No worries! I lost the list like 4 times when trying to post it :ROFLMAO:

Yep, that's the updated list. I went through all the links and updated them, removed the ones that no longer exist and that can't find any trace of, split the producers into "Software" & "Hardware" groupings and sorted alphabetically because my OCD made me.

Hopefully these artisans get some more love and recognition!

Casn't believe I'm saying this but I missed an artisan producer :cry: @Mark1966 would you mind adding the below to the Software section of the list?

Stuga [Soaps, Oils and More] (Stuga also has a small range of brushes they make themselves and razors from several manufacturers)

I have used the Stuga shave soap.
Not bad when on sale for about $12 but not worth full price when compared to brands like Cells, Mitchell's et al

Does anyone know if Abbie & Grace Soap Works is still in business? I messaged them but nothing back and their online presence is fairly thin.
@Sxot is the owner of this soap maker and I haven’t heard or seen him on P&C for ages, almost two years now... I think???

Has anyone been in contact with @Sxot???
