Blackbird-Soap-Set

Soap isn’t generally considered very manly. It’s an absolute necessity if you don’t want to feel and/or be disgusting, but that’s about it. Men don’t go to stores like Bath and Body Works looking for new fragrances to put in their bathroom. We need one bar of soap, and the odds are it came from whatever prescription/drug/big box store happens to be the closest. Thanks to the Internet, you don’t have to go past the mailbox to step it up in the soap department. Blackbird’s new soap set is made of (you probably don’t really care, but we’re inclined to tell you anyway): saponified olive, coconut, essential oils, beeswax, shea butter and activated charcoal. Released to commemorate the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, each of the black 2.5″ cubes bears an overhead view of Mt. St. Helens and is handmade in Washington. It’s something we didn’t know existed–soap that looks cool.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
