Not the best soap, although it could be that as well, but the one the shows it's worth every penny from every aspect.
My vote would have to go to Boellis Panama 1924 Coffret Shaving Bowl with Lid.    Understated beauty.

Scottish Fine presents quite nicely.  The scent is very pleasing.

+1. I was about to say the same thing. Too bad it is impossible to lather.

I think the C&S in black is the best, but I would never pay for it. I do not like the new Boellis Panama 1924, it looks like a cold cream jar from the beginning of the twentieth century. The AdP jar for creams is well designed and understated. TFS copied it with their initial releases.

Johnny, that is the Saponificio Varesino. I looked last night after they sent the email and it is around $150 for the slate and bowl.

I would give a vote for the wood bowl SP.

The difficult thing to swallow for a customer on lidded craft items is the price. The way I describe this to people inquiring about what goes into making lidded pots is you are really making 3 pots as the producer. The top portion is made, the bottom portion is made, but the planning, execution and attention to the joining or meeting points is another piece in itself.

I have a small collection of things I call Yoyo jars. These are a couple examples and are probably about as wide as the slate. They are not made by me but by potters I respect and have luckily befriended. My point is that to me, prices on some of these containers, shave related or not, are justified and are true works of art. I want to see the anodized containers from C & S. They definitely are good looking and I want to feel the mass and weight.

Wood is a little different because you are usually taking away from a mass by shaving away material. It might be a bit easier but you still have to take care in centering wood on the lathe. I have always wondered how the generic yet still beautiful wood jars that you can buy from vendors are so cheap. They have half of the wood carved out of the middle. Just seems like so much is wasted out of a block of wood. I don't know if they can recycle the remaining wate.
