We are now offering a Barbers Choice value bundle.

When it comes to the choosing a soap or cream, Barbers who offer shaves value reliability, consistency and price / performance ratio above all. These soaps/creams are cheaper but they perform brilliantly, giving excellent value for money. They are used day-in and day-out due to their consistency and ease of lathering. This is why they are preferred by barbers.

Our Barbers Choice bundle combines all the creams and soaps commonly used by barbers around the world into one value bundle:

Arko Shave Soap (75g) - Turkey
Derby Shave Soap (75g) -Turkey
Vi-John Lime cream (125g) - India
Admiral Shave Cream (90g) - Pakistan
Jolly Shave Cream (120g) - Pakistan

Yes, I liked the big knot on the 2000, but I think the selection we chose worked out best in terms of cost versus performance. It was a tough decision to leave it out. I also wanted to include the 830 this time around. Also, the brush that impressed us the most was the 1800. Straight out of the box the knot feels very soft. In fact, a custom brush maker said the 1800 knot is often transplanted into custom handles.

All excellent brushes. :thumbup: The 830 is very highly regarded amongst wet shavers all over .The SOC brushes are also top notch (and produced in limited numbers). We have sold some 730's and feed back has been very good from customers.

If I were you, I'd take the SOC badger. It's 2-band badger, so will have a better backbone than the Silvertip 730. Do definitely take 830 if it captures your eyes. Personally I strongly feel that all wet shavers must have owned at least one Semogue boar brush. 830 knot is outstanding.

If you can afford, take them all, because you'll regret leaving the others and keep on thinking about them, after only purchasing one.

My personal policy when faced with a decision like this is to always go for the first one that caught your eye. That way you have less regrets afterwards. Otherwise you could always buy all as Shiomoto said... :twisted:

My personal policy when faced with a hard-to-choose decision like this is to always buy them all, and take the money out of my meal budget. I've been feeding mostly on instant noodles, peanut butter and bread for almost 2 weeks after purchasing that Merkur 47C razor and valobra soaps.
