I’m selling this fantastic, and very rare, big piece (~600gr) of P160 type “duro” (hard), also more rare than type “morbido” (soft). This soap is from a friend that found it in an old box. Then there is the famous pre-shave gel Floid Sandolor, fantastic barber shop scent, very classy. The price is 100€ for both, plus shipping (depends on country, please ask for a quote). Don’t miss this very unique opportunity to have at once two unavailable vintage shaving items!

EDIT Price reduced 80€ for both!!

The P160 "tipo duro" soap is a rare commodity. I've got some and it's a great performer.
I know there's quite a few people looking for this.
I paid a lot less for mine though. GLWTS.

I think what scares people about the price is that it is in Euro's. Perhaps a rough conversion to US Dollars would sweeten the deal? 600grams is a LOT of soap...My 1/2 Kilo lasted me almost 3-years in rotation and was turning brown when I sold it the last of it to Jeremy. Yours looks to be much fresher than mine was, so there value there, but I do think your price is high for what it has been sold on here before, but that's just my opinion. I think people are probably looking at the Floid as more of an added bonus...the soap is the highlight and rightly so.

Value is always subjective and in the eye of the beholder. Good luck with your sale in any case.

Well, put down the price than, final reduction, 80€ (~100$ dollars) for both.

Forgive my ignorance and no offence meant by what I'm about to ask, but how is this soap any different than what was recently sold by IB?

The current formula is an approximation of the original formula which is based on the "same" formula that Joe somehow got...I've used it but it is not the same as the original. It is a close approximation, but not the same.

The original has a different feel, lathet and scent to RR IMO.

Also, this block is the "Tipo Duro" (or hard type), while the current RazoRock P160 formula is based off the "Tipo Morbido" (or soft type).
The 1k block of Tipo Duro P.160 That I bought was also around 600g due to moisture loss over time. It's a "hard" soap, and NOT a croap like Cella.
The reduced price is competitive for this "unobtainium" soap. I'm considering buying it.

Also, I believe the P160 clone made by RR is out of production itself.
