Ladies and gentlemen, we’re now coming to an end from the Rumble 59 pomade line, Schmiere.
But, the show must go on!
We’ve gone through the light, medium, and heavy pomade. Now, we’re treading into the real heavy stuff!
This pomade tin design is of course, similar to the other pomades. With slight differences with the birds hair and what he’s got in his mouth. Being “knuppelhart,” it seems that this little birdie has gone through a Rumble (59!) Too corny?
This time around, we’ve got the pomade in a green-ish color. The color in the photo isn’t the true color of the pomade. But it’s ok, it’s not in focus anyways.
The scent for this one, is a good one. I can’t exactly put my nose on it (lame pun, but unintended,) but it’s just a very fresh scent.
Now, knuppelhart translates to “rock hard.” I jokingly translated knuppelhart to “fucking hard.” Well, I think the cats at Rumble 59 need to rethink its translation! THIS SHIT WAS HARD AS FUCK!
Man… Let me tell ya, I believe I have decently strong hands. Digging into some pomade is not a problem here. But man, I (seriously) thought I needed to use a chisel to get some of this stuff out! This stuff, literally, was rock hard, and was hard to scoop out. Maybe it’s because it’s colder here, I don’t know. But you folks in Alaska, this might not work for you! Just kidding ;). But no, really, this shit was hard!
Ok, maybe I didn’t bleed. But this stuff wasn’t easy to get out!
YUP! But, does this translate to how hard it is to apply?
Just like the other pomades by Rumble 59, it wasn’t hard to run it through your hair. I was able to easily rub my palms together and soften it up. If this stuff was hard to put in your hair, as it was to get out of the tin, I think we’d be in trouble folks! But these cats know what they’re doing and aren’t gonna screw you over!
I wish I was able to use this pomade prior to getting a haircut. The firm hold probably would’ve looked good, real good, with my hair longer. Unfortunately, I had a haircut prior to reviewing this pomade. But, it doesn’t change my opinion about it!
While it doesn’t give a high sheen as the light weight (weich) Schmiere does, it isn’t completely matte. It did give a little sheen in direct sunlight, but not the whole greasy look. But that’s easily fixed with using the weich pomade as a top coat.
The hold with this pomade is really good. Not too stiff, not too light. It’s a couple of kicks below High Life (heavy) and that’s a good thing. H.L. was too stiff and waxy for me, but this stuff is right where it should be. Gave me a good hold and held my hair in place. Hey, that’s what a lot of cats are looking for, right?
Overall, this is a really good, heavy pomade. Obviously, different from the usual petrolatum/greasy stuff we’re used to, and that’s fine! It works perfectly for those who find waxes to be too stiff for them. It will hold your hair in place, keep those fly-away hairs down, and definitely will get your hair lookin’ right.
Man, just wish I used this a little bit sooner! In due time my friends… in due time…
Well, this has been fun! Big thanks to Mareike and the whole Rumble 59 crew!
Stay tuned for an overview of the pomade line, as a whole…
Until the next time,
