Looking for a unique gift for your man?
Here is the perfect set!
I have MANY Brand New Murphy and McNeil Shave soaps. Each soap has been partnered up with a Beard Knife Shavette and a Beard Knife Badger Brush. All you need is to add a box of single edge blades.
These soaps are limited supply and often sold out. I only have ONE of each in stock. If you ONLY want the soap and not the shavette or shave brush feel free to contact me. I might be willing to part the set out.
As a follow up to Nantahala, Black Mountain Shaving and Murphy & McNeil are pleased to introduce the big brother scent to our line-up: Pisgah (biblical Hebrew for 'summit').
Formalized in 1916, the Pisgah National Forest is home to the tallest summits in the Eastern United States, including Mount Pisgah, the highest peak of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell, the highest peak of the Black Mountain range and anywhere East of the Mississippi River (6,684 feet). At the summit of Mount Mitchell, you will find a navigation compass pointing directions as you overlook the Appalancians & Blue Ridge Mountains in all of their wonder - a subtle reminder that if you can ascend one mountain, you can overcome, go, and do anything.
From the sacred Cherokee hunting valley of the Swannanoa, the birthplace of formalized art studies in the US at the former Black Mountain College, to the diverse richness of Asheville, Pisgah's 513,000 acres encompass them all. This also including 85,000 acres donated by Vanderbilts - the birthplace of Forestry and the US Forestry Service. At the Cradle of Forestry, the original cabins and one room school houses remain.
The scent blend developed for Pisgah is rustic and artful while remaining elite. It will allow you to feel the wood of the cabins and their creaking floorboards under your feet while luxurious enough to feel at home at the Vanderbilts' Biltmore Estate, the largest privately owned home in the US to this day. Notes of spices and herbs serve to ground and comfort like walking into one of our country general stores where provisions are acquired for the expedition. Sacred tobacco and a touch of incense protect with encouragement to continue climbing until you reach the summit. Lastly,ever so slight notes of citrus await like the sun on your face that await at the top.
With this release, we are proud to offer red wine barrel shave brushes from Tommi Kolsi from Finland, reflective of the vast wine vinyards at the Biltmore and in the spirit of reclaiming and reusing materials to create works of art, along with label art from Xicano Design capturing the vast beauty of Pisgah.
We are thrilled that Pisgah will be part of your great adventure.
Ascend young man!

This is a high end luxurious shave soap made with tallow and duck fat. It might not sound like something you want to put on your face...but trust me...you do. :) Soap MSRP is 20.00. Brush Value 40.00 Shavette is 14.00 a 74.00 (Free Postage (7.50 on average) an 81.50 USD value for just 65.00! Other sites make you spend hundreds to avoid 20 dollar shipping charges. You only discover this at checkout. Not me. This deal will also ship FREE in the USA. ALL of Murphy & McNeil's shave soaps are worth trying so there are a bunch of kits ready...pick the one that suits you best and you will not be disappointed.
Warning: Luxury shave soaps are addictive. Once you buy one you will want to try them all. One container should last you YEARS. An excellent value which you can give over and over! The best gifts are EXPERIENCES and that is exactly what you are purchasing.
No finer value will be found. Premium products at discounted price for buying multiple items at once.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: You are responsible for your countries taxes not me. If you place an order and I ship the order and it comes back to me because you refused to pay your own import fees or taxes I will NOT issue a refund. So I highly recommend you pay your duties OR do NOT order from BeardKnife. This removes my product from inventory, it costs me twice as much to ship, my seller fees are greater than your tax obligation. I don't like taxes either...but I'm not responsible for your taxes. I cannot ban buyers but not every customer is a paying customer and I do not want you to purchase from me if you cannot satisfy the terms of the listing. You drive up prices for all the other customers who want what they order. Don't be that guy.((This notice is on all listings may not apply to THIS listing: please look at item descriptions before purchasing any items))
Nos definition: New old stock. It means the razor is OLD but not used. So you will not have a razor that is honed or stropped by me. You will have a brand new factory edge. Which usually is shave ready but often will require immediate or quicker work to get the edge how YOU prefer. They are usually the most expensive razors because they are best preserved. By honing them I would be devaluing them. IF you don't care and want me to hone a NOS razor contact me prior to purchase and let me know. Many people put their razors are NOS just to get views and it has no meaning to them just like "shave ready" is not true for most online sellers these days.
Shave ready definition:
Shave ready means different things to different people. It's often just added to titles to increase sales. I use the term honestly. It passes all industry standards of shave readiness and has been put through the described process. If you are looking for a razor that you can take out of the box....and shave with. That's what shave ready is supposed to mean. Worked on by a professional.
My 2 cents on hone wear and scratches. It's a tool. Don't worry about them. Some people tape spines I do not unless stated and for a specific reason. My goal is to maintain the geometry of the razor not manipulate it and provide the best shaving razor not simply a perfect razor. No shave ready razor is in mint but I do my best to balance ALL pros and cons to provide the most trustworthy cutthroat.
My return policy is simple.
Because sellers are already losing money on postage, paying HIGH fees to make products available. When an item is SOLD it can no longer be SOLD. Contrary to popular belief nothing is free and the BUYER pays all costs. There are a lot of games we are forced to play like "free shipping" and 30 day refunds...I don't play those games. If you don't want the product...don't buy it.
If you do want it...keep it.
I can't afford to lose money or sales for customers I'd rather not keep. It sounds harsh but I assure you...it's true. I don't need everyone's business nor do I want everyone's business.
When you provide things like soaps, lotions, and other consumables a return goes into the trash and the cost of the item is increased to absorb loss. That's not fair to good customers.
It's near impossible already to keep prices down with inflation and an incompetent government constantly disrupting the markets. Antiques razors are carefully packaged by me to assure they arrive safely. When BAD customers return items they also don't care to package them properly and I end up with a $200 dollar loss plus postage and that's not a sustainable business model. If you want to try things and return them but cheap Chinese junk from Amazon and go nuts. When you are THE best at something you can be selective with your policies and customers. Please note IF something is NOT as described or you receive the wrong item entirely I am of course going to correct MY mistake. Buyer remorse is not something I take responsibility for. Providing HIGH quality products at the lowest price possible is a near impossible task these days. Many items I lose money on just to make something available. I have no use for used cosmetics and I do not want them back. If a razor is not shaving to your satisfaction I will allow a return within 30 days. (buyer pays return postage) I will pay to ship it back and I will assure the razor edge it is adjusted to your needs. If for some reason I cannot do so then and ONLY then will I issue a refund. I'd rather lose a bad customer than increase cost on a good one. Fortunately almost ALL of my customers have been awesome and return requests are extremely rare. I do appreciate you guys! Also a word of advice...if you want to try a product and you don't like the fragrance DON'T buy more than one! Scented products are all preference based. I've bought many products I don't prefer. I eat the loss because I chose to buy it. Big retailers can eat the loss...us little guys cannot. If you have QUESTIONS about an item...please write to me about them BEFORE purchasing. That way you can assure you get what you want before either of us waste our time and money.
