These shave tins are perfect for storing and using your shave soaps and samples.
The Small (4oz) shave tin will fit a full-size puck perfectly while the sample puck will fill it 1/4 of the way.
The Medium (8oz) shave tin will fit both puck sizes with a larger diameter for those who prefer a larger swirl.
NOTE: Shave soap and waterproof label do not come with the shave tin. You are buying the tin only.
This is a shave tin. It fits the soap pucks that Sterling sells. Thus, it works as advertised. Unknown on 8th Feb 2018
I ordered two of the medium size, very satisfied, they hold the 4.5 ounce puck nicely, with room all around for a proper swirl when loading your brush. Jason K. on 1st Feb 2018
The tin leaves the perfect amount of room at the top and around the side to slide in a full puck. It's beautiful and works great. Can't beat the price! Unknown on 23rd Jan 2018
I like the small size for trying samples. but for the whole puck I would rather use the medium size. You could certainly use the smalls for whole refill pucks but I don't like having soap running over the tins when loading up my brush when the puck is new. If using a smaller knotted brush this will then work fine. When using the samples I usually use a tighter boar brush. Sal on 21st Dec 2017
Can't comment on the medium size since I've only purchased smalls. The small size tins however are the perfect size for sample pucks from Sterling. I picked a couple up because I like variety so I usually buy a couple samples at a time, I also don't like to put a chunk of a sample in my shave mug as I change soaps almost daily. So these solved my problem of either using whatever I put in my mug up or wasting it by tossing what was left over. I also found that the labels that come on the sample pucks can be peeled off and easily re-applied to the tin. Finally, and equally important to me, is that the lids on these shut tightly. You will not be able to shake the lids off, they won't come free if you travel, and if they fall from a bathroom shelf, cabinet, etc, they won't pop open and dump your soap out. I will be purchasing these with each sample I buy from this point forward. Really quality product for what they are. Unknown on 6th Dec 2017
They are tin, they hold the soap, they work. Great for the price. Unknown on 6th Sep 2017
I've been purchasing the small metal tins with all my shave soap sample pucks, and, more recently, the limited releases of 'The Louge' and 'Agar'. While I was initially concerned, both about rust and the possibility that the 4oz pucks would not fit in the small tins, both concerns were unfounded. I typically use the label that comes with the shrinkwrapped pucks rather than purchasing additional ones, but I've found that I must be careful not to get them wet. While I'm sure the labels offered for purchase are waterproof, my income is limited and the full sized tubs have professional, and at times even elegant artwork. While there has been minute amounts of rust, it has only appeared if the tins were left in standing water(I'm lazy when it comes to cleanup), and wipes away with a damp cloth. All in all, they're sturdy and quite handsome in an old fashioned way. A great buy! Dave on 22nd Aug 2017
Excellent,inexpensive tins for sample soaps. Tennisplayer on 17th Aug 2017
These tins are nothing fancy but they are solid metal tins that fit the samples perfectly. In fact, I ordered three samples and all three fit in one tin for shipment. So that will give you a good idea of the size. Nothing complicated, but you can use them again and again. Unknown on 4th Aug 2017
If you dont have a shave mug, you might consider purchasing 1 or 2 to put in rotation for shaving w the sample sizes. Otherwise, these are simple tin containers and dont twist on, they simply push together. I like to put the sticker of the scent I'm using on the bottom so i dont forget which one im using. Also, once you put one soap inside and lather even one time, in my opinion, you would be better off finishing it before using a different one. Thats why i say get 1 or 2 if u know you'll get bored. Hope this helps! IG - @TheOrdinaryBarber on 26th Jul 2017
Have not used these yet, I just ordered a puck to try these out, I'm sure they will work out just fine. Bob on 19th Jul 2017
Bought this to place Stirling samples for storage. The samples fit great and are soft enough that they can be pressed with fingers to fill tin from edge to edge. This will be my sample tin for all future samples. Unknown on 22nd Jun 2017
These tins are a fantastic size and value.
They make loading a brush so much easier due to the wize diameter of the tin. they are strong enough to hold in the hand without fear or crushing it and work fantastic whether you wish to simply split your existing soap into more than one tin, take a smaller amount for travel, or to place samples you've received into something larger for loading.
I'll guarantee that more of these tins will be being purchased (by me) in the near future. C.J. Jones on 8th Jun 2017
I bought several of these along with some refill pucks of the soaps. I press the refill puck into the tin and it fits nicely. Enough lip for easy swirling and no need to waste plastic. Not to mention re-usable. Highly recommend JK on 8th May 2017
They work as specified and at a reasonable price. Good choice if you need to store stuff. Unknown on 27th Apr 2017
I've only really had two problems with these. First of all, my 4 oz. puck leaves no room at the top of the tin to put some water to let the soap bloom. Second, the sample pucks don't fit flush, and spin whenever I load my brush. However they do stack together nicely, and are a good compact size. Ben on 19th Apr 2017
These are great for all the samples you want to try out and makes the experience feel great. Unknown on 27th Feb 2017
The small tins are everything you would expect them to be and work and feel great. Getting a good lather with a sample puck is really easy because you have a good amount of space above the soap. Unknown on 26th Feb 2017
Sturdy tin. What can I say dave on 22nd Feb 2017
Just as described and I carefully removed the label from sample puck and stick it the tin! Unknown on 21st Feb 2017
