  • Sample pack of six tallow-based shaving soaps from Strike Gold Shave

The heart of Strike Gold Shave is public service. From years in the public sphere to the service of wet shaving, Frank has been committed to people. Strike Gold even takes this public service mantra into their marketing and motto. So, "shave like a president" with Strike Gold.

This soap is garnering great reviews. Dubbed "Commander in Chief" formula, this soap is a tallow-based soap has everything you would expect in a fabulous shaving soap. It is a luxurious lather with plenty of cushion, hydration, and post-shave feel. Try all the scents with this sample pack.

  • Gipper: The Gipper scent is a nod to Ronald Reagan's years in Hollywood crafting Westerns. The Gipper (as Reagan was often called) played many on screen roles (noteably football player George Gipp from which role he derived his nickname) including many Westerns. So this aroma has notes of sweetgrass, cedar, and sage the cowboy would encounter on his horseback treks, as well as coal, tar, & gunpowder from the tools of his trade. Lather up!
  • Ike: This scent is the perfect pairing for a military man turned president. Inspired by a high end fragrance much-loved by another famous president (JFK), this Ike aroma has notes of citrus and spice with a floral heart. Then notes of cedar, sandalwood, gaiac, and ambergris provide a masculine, powdery finish.
  • Nixon: This Nixon soap is as contradictory as its namesake. A sweet and sour blend of lemon (a homage to Nixon's home state of California perhaps) and sugar cane (a spoon full helps the medicine go down, ya know.) If you like citrus scents for a morning pick-me-up, grab this fragrance from Strike Gold.
  • Kennedy: Scented with citrus, spice accord, violet, iris, cedar, sandalwood, gaiac and ambergris and a popular aroma, named best scent ever by YouTuber, Nick Shaves.
  • Old Hickory: This Old Hickory aroma is a unisex fragrance with fresh top notes, floral heart notes, and a musky, woodsy base. President Andrew Jackson led a colorful, vibrant like as a military man and statesman. His toughness earned him the nickname, Old Hickory. This complex scent is a good homage to him. Fresh, herbal citrus at the start blends into rose, oakmoss, grapefruit in the middle. It all rests on sandalwood, blonde woods, amber, musk, and tonka.
  • Rushmore: This Rushmore scent will evoke the aromas you will encounter as you gaze up the towering heights of Mt. Rushmore. Opening notes of balsam, verbena, orange peel with apple and cinnamon give it a bright, fruity start. Then middle notes of evergreen, fir, mistletoe, cranberry, sugar, and myrrh deepen the feeling of standing in a forest, which is further solidified with base notes of pine, sandalwood, balsam fir, and incense.

Size: 1/2 Tbsp each (enough for approximately 4 shaves)

Soap ingredients: Tallow, stearic acid, kokum butter, shea butter, castor oil, glycerin and fragrance.

Great soaps; give them a try

Strike Gold Shave makes excellent soaps, and you're bound to find at least one that you like in this sample pack. I got 8 to 10 shaves out of each sample, which I thought was enough to get a good feel for each one. The soaps are a little on the thirsty side, but with the right amount of water they'll produce an exceptional lather. Here's my take on the scents: GIPPER -- a nice, invigorating combination that evokes the wide-open spaces out west; it almost makes you want to saddle up and ride. IKE -- I thought the spice notes were too strong and that they overpowered the other notes, but I could see this working as a winter scent. KENNEDY -- a really nice, fresh blend of several floral notes; I wasn't impressed at first, but the scent really grew on me. NIXON -- I could take or leave this one, but if you like citrus it's worth a try. OLD HICKORY -- a nice balance of citrus, floral notes, and a funky, earthy base. RUSHMORE -- a fresh, woodsy scent that I thought was on the faint side, especially compared to the others in this pack.

Some of the most interesting scents ever. Hard to pick a favorite. As always, the wife has the final word. She is sensitive to many scents. I like them all, but she probably won’t.
