@JHBBlade - that RR400 handle looks amazing and in my limited experience that Plissoft knot works really well for bowl or face.
@Thug - very quick delivery on that. Fantastic brush for the collection!

Thanks Gents.

I thought I'd purchased the big tub of MT but it's quite a bit smaller than my others.

The Wild Oranges will match the Iain Crichton brush I used this morning as well the Fine L'Orange Noir AS.

@ShavingB & @DS, the others variants I have are all superb performing soaps for straight razors, so I see no reason why these shouldn't be.


@Bles, not as much as when I took the Paladin Cleo out of the box. :lol:

It's always exciting when those brown paper wrapped packages arrive...Plus I think I've completed my RVT soap collection for now. Thanks for the excellent service and free samples Mohamed!

My newest additions are a bunch of NOS Culmak vintage brushes that I received as a birthday present. Once broken in, these brushes become incredibly soft but still maintain excellent backbone. I love the vintage packaging as well.

Did a lather and shave test with the one Chum brush. Still needs a good break-in period as the hairs haven't split yet but it lathers up a storm and also is quite scrubby.

Was also a test of the Post Office. I had to go and pick these up from Cape Mail Hub otherwise it would have taken another two months for them to clear customs. Parcel was less than R400 so only had to pay for a clearance fee but the parcels just sit there for ages.
