Hello, I’m Sig Solo! Welcome to my channel and welcome to Shave Stick Stories Chapter 1. Today’s shave stick is the Arko shave stick all the way from Turkey. It costs $2 to $5, and I paid $4 for it. This is the first of the shave sticks I will be reviewing every Saturday. I have two criteria for each shave stick – it can only cost a maximum of $10, and it must be made specifically for shaving. I will be evaluating them based on the five S’s: simplicity of use, scent (my personal opinion), scent strength, slickness, and skin feel during and after. The final max score is 25; 1 -5 for each category. In the picture, you may see that I have 20 shave sticks and two more coming in from Muhle, Germany. I will be using my Greenlandic Soaker and a synthetic cashmere knot brush in most of the shaves.

I am not a face latherer, so I will not be demonstrating how to do that. Let’s begin by wetting the face and applying the soap. The soap has a nice citrusy smell. It foams up easily, and the simplicity of use is a five. I then use an Indian-made razor with a stainless steel blade. The Arko shave stick is made with tallow, which gives it a nice slick feel. The scent of the soap is a three, and the slickness is a four. The skin feels good after using it. The final score for this shave stick is a 19 out of 25.
