Hmm, no dealings with them just yet, the soap seems reasonably priced, but then I remember what a good product RVTs soaps are and are in the same price bracket :) I may order a soap though to show my support and have a test.

While I enjoyed the super max green.., @ R20/ tuck, I think that's quite steep,

Some of the other prices do not seem wholly unreasonable but are not the most competitive choices either.

This is not the first site I have seen offering a subscription service (the shave company) , and I certainly see the appeal, knowing you get what you need when you need it, this is how I order my cat food online and it's great, but in the DE market alone there is so much variety, that I would hate to be stuck into the same thing day after day, there are so many great soaps and blades to sample alone!

But if this site serves as a gateway to bring more people into the world of wet shaving then good on the site owners and I wish them much success. TSC introduced me to the world of wet shaving and thank goodness for that!

I saw one of their olx ads a few weeks ago and sent an inquiry and have yet to receive a reply, so I'm not impressed. Also agree on their prices, some just seem very high.

I've often seen Metlerkamps advertising shaving supplies on BoB. Was in Knysna the weekend and it was on my list of places to see. Very interesting shop and full of things and gadgets for the house and mostly the kitchen. Asked them for shaving supplies and was dutifully pointed to this stand.

Quite a lot of well priced Proraso products, and a few brands I haven't heard of. I got there just before closing time and had a salesperson trying to rush me, so left empty handed. But worth a visit again.

I think Marvis comes from the same Distributor as Proraso.

For those of you who are interested in honing. Apparently King Stones are decent. I haven't tried them but I found a local vendor the other day.
