Release Date:

  • Friday, November 13 at 7PM Central

Where to Get It:

  • Online: Murphy and McNeil
  • Visit the BDLM collection HERE
  • IMPORTANT RE: Purchase Limits & Discounts: 
    • We expect there to be great demand for this product, and by Nature KODIAK supply is limited.  Due to this, we want to take care of as many folks as possible.  We will be limiting purchase to no more than TWO of each scent per person for the initial launch.  Orders above this amount risk being cancelled.
    • Also - BDLM 1 and 2 are NOT eligible for any discounts through end-of-year.  If any of our evergreen discounts/coupon codes are used on on an order it risks cancellation.
What is it!?
  • Barbershop De Los Muertos is a special edition release of not one but TWO shaving soap sets.  It will be available both as limited "Early Grave Edition" box sets or in in some standalone components.  These sets are aptly named "Barbershop De Los Muertos" and "Barbershop De Los Muertos 2."
  • BDLM 1 is actually a re-release of a set that John and Rafa collaborated on created a couple years ago.  It was extremely well received by the community, but sold out quickly leaving many which they had a chance to try it!  The re-release of BDLM 1 has been given the Murphy and McNeil treatment and will feature our KODIAK soap base, new/updated packaging and labeling, and will have more options available like Balms and Eau de Parfum!
  • Barbershop De Los Muertos features more incredible artwork by the one-and-only Rafa of @xicano_design.

      • Where can I read more about this release?  Preview products and pages are visible already at Murphy and McNeil's website.  Please visit there to learn more or to sign up to be notified when the product releases (limited slots available for notification.)
      • If you sell out, will more be available?  Due to our difficulty sourcing some of the ingredients for KODIAK, we cannot guarantee that more will be available in the event of a sell-out.  That said, we do work hard to try to have enough to last but it's always tough to predict demand. 
      • What does shipping cost?  
        • Murphy and McNeil offers 100% free U.S. shipping with no minimums.  International shipping is $10 for any order over $50 USD.  (Calculated rates apply to international orders below $50) 
        • It's very important to remember we cannot ship alcohol-based products overseas.  We will automatically convert alcohol based versions to our non-alcohol based in these cases.
