What's the story with this soap? Is it as good and slick as tabac, mwf, etc? And are the two andozied dishes REALLY discontinued? I'm not sure if it's around anymore but if I can find either of their anodized dishes, i might have to buy myself a couple xmas presents.


edit: well aren't i a turkey, there is a 2 page thread on it just below this one.

Aye laddy, it is that good, although the new Valobra puck is also excellent and is 1/2 the price.

Phil should be getting more of the 88 dishes in...unless I've missed them. They were expected last week, but I think they may have been caught up in the Christmas craziness.

It's great stuff, but there's no way I could personally imagine purchasing the dishes. Even I have my limits. Biggrin

The tracking says they are set to arrive on Friday. I have my fingers crossed.

More like a payment plan! hahaha. I just bought a new place, a new car AND it's the holiday season. It's really a bad time to be spending that kind of money but I REALLY want it. I'll have to make it happen though.

You guys are killing me, but the black 88 dish will look really good next to my new jet black Muhle razor...

And here I told Phil I was gonna wait until the spring to buy a bowl of that. I just may have to see if I can't squeeze one of them into my budget.

The soap is great, and the bowl is the best I have ever used. It has a great weight and the fit between the lid and bowl is excellent. It cost me quite a bit, but I'm glad I finally picked up the 88 bowl. Now, if I could just find one for the Oxford and Cambridge! Biggrin

The soap is top shelf without a doubt. I used O&C this morning. The scent is as wonderful as the lather.

I'm pleased to have it in my rotation.

I do not have the deluxe dish. Mine resides in a screw top aluminum container. I will content myself with such for now.

It's irrational ... but that's what makes it so compelling ... Rolleyes

I've never used C&S, and yet I'm fixated on these bowls ...
