Duke Cannon: Inspired By Soldiers. Benefiting Veterans.

I stumbled across Duke Cannon over 10 years ago when trying to find the perfect men's grooming products. I've tried many before and some were good. Some were great. But it wasn't until I came across Duke Cannon that I found a perfect line of grooming goods, across the board, made just for men. To be honest, it was their clever & catchy product names that drove me in for a first look. I mean, anytime you see something as simple as a bar of soap labeled as "Big Ass Brick of Soap," how can you not check it out? And it was a big ass brick of soap. It smelled awesome and it lasted so much longer than a traditional bar of soap. I immediately saw the value and decided to check out their other products. And 10 years later, I'm glad I did. But not only are their products amazing, their website is completely organized and simple to shop, shipping is free over $35, AND... every purchase made at Duke Cannon helps to support our troops. With our partnership with Duke Cannon, you can save 15% off your order by using our promo code "MARRIAGE" at checkout.

"The rectangular “brick” shape and large size of Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Soap was inspired by the product issued to G.I.’s during the Korean War. (Our modern version retains similar dimensions, but smells a little better than its predecessor.) In fact, is produced today in the same U.S. based, family-owned plant that was the primary supplier to the military during that era.

Today we continue to gain inspiration from the fine soldiers serving our country by partnering with active duty military stationed at Camp Ripley in our home state in Minnesota as well as those currently deployed abroad in some of the world’s harshest environments.

While big corporations pay MBA’s to conduct months of focus groups, we simply work with our liaisons in the Armed Forces to inspire new ideas and review any all new products before they launch. Simply put, if it doesn’t meet the high standards of the men in uniform, it doesn’t happen."

Adam's Top Picks:


A man with a head of thick, healthy hair does not need a motivational quote to start the day. Duke Cannon's News Anchor Cedarwood 2-in-1 Hair Washis formulated with premium ingredients for hard-working men whose hair commands the respect of others.

The unique scent combines cedar, sandalwood, and spices, temporarily turning your noggin into the best smelling place on Earth.


Any time a man wipes sharpened steel across his face, there is bound to be some damage. Find relief from that scorched earth feeling by going from hot to cold with Duke Cannon's After-Shave Balm.

Made with menthol, it provides an extremely unique cooling effect that helps close the pores and provide instant comfort. Superior grade ingredients like aloe, shea butter, and allantoin provide hydration while minimizing razor burn irritation, and a light sandalwood fragrance leaves you feeling and smelling your handsome best.


Let's dispense with the typical flowery romance language most brands use to sell their wares and just cut to the chase: this product works harder and smells better than the stuff you're using right now.

Duke Cannon's Trench Warfare Antiperspirant + Deodorant is formulated with the highest allowable level of odor and wetness protection. And the uniquely masculine Sandalwood & Amber scent will have your pits smelling right.

Simply put, it works harder and smells better.


In the history of great duos, the partnership of beer and bourbon is even more important to our way of life than mac n’ cheese or fish n’ chips. To honor this transcendent pairing, we are obligated to offer the Beer & Bourbon Box.

Comes complete with two Big Ass Beer Soaps, a deliciously scented sandalwood soap made with Old Milwaukee Beer and a fresh citrus woodsy offering made with Deschutes Fresh Squeeze IPA; and two Big American Bourbon Soaps, a rich, oak barrel scented bar made with Buffalo Trace Bourbon.


Dry, cracked hands are like living testaments to a man's hard work and ingenuity. And while hard-working hands are to be celebrated, let's be honest; dry, cracked hands feel awful.

That's why Duke Cannon introduced Bloody Knuckles Hand Repair Balm. Made with lanolin, it provides much-needed moisture without leaving the hands feeling sticky or greasy (like that stuff in the green jar).

Unscented so your hands don't smell like flowers.

At 5 oz., this is a hearty serving that will last a good long time. Formulated to repair the hands of workers, fighters, and world champions.
