    DeHaven Model 2 was seemingly used just a handful of times. It will be SOTD tomorrow. What a gorgeous razor. [​IMG]

    I waited more than two months for these soaps to arrive; the first shipment was lost and we had to wait before the second shipment was authorized. The second shipment took about a week. Very happy so far after using Soek this evening; very nice soap and I love the scent (Christmas time scent).

    Arrived today - An ATT SE1 with a Kronos handle and some Antica Barbiera Colla cream - thanks to @kamisori! I've decided to try the Kai Pink blades, which are on their way from the Shave Lounge - looking forward to giving it a go...

  11. I hope too. I will try them both next week when I'll get back home. I took the Muhle synthetic and the DE89 with me.

    Nice purchases! I also took delivery of a Yaqi Brush (not used it yet) and have had the MS2000 for a while now, I find it works well with a milder blade - best shaves have been with a Trig Silver Edge.

    I've not tried the Sapone da Barba but I am thinking of placing an order for it with my next Shave Dash buy. Have you used other Italian Croaps of Cella, 3P and Vitos? If so how does it compare to it?

    I've used both Cella and Vitos. I would rate the La Saponeria Artigiana as marginally behind Vitos, but in my experience better than Cella. Lathers very easily, great cushion and post shave is very good. The coconut version also provides a change from the usual almond croap scents.

    I also find Vitos to be a great performer, I prefer it to Cella as well. The downside of those two croaps and 3P is the almond scent which I'm not too keen on so I'll get a sample of the LPA Coconut. Thanks for the info.

    Some new soaps, I have the Speick cream which is great so the soap is hopefully as good or better, also keen to try the Valobra. Already had a quick splash of the issey miyake which smells great.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I find the Speick cream is better than the soap. Still a good soap though.

  20. How did the process of swapping them work? I've been debating swapping mine out. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the updated version.
    Cheers
