Agreed, I have found the perfect comhination for me.....Cosmo, Rocca and GSB! Comfortable and smooth as silk. No nicks or blemishes, just great skin.

Thanks for this.  I'll try a GSB in my Rocca.  I've been experimenting with blades for it.

Just reading this thought why have a shave before a bike ride, then realized you were riding a moto. Sounds like fun.

Has anyone found a soap to rival SV?  I think Fitjar hard soap may but they have limited varieties.

For me nothing matches the overall quality (ease of lathering, scents, slickness, cushioning and post shave feel) of Saponificio Varesino. There are other soaps exceeding in one or two of these categories, but not a total 10+ like SV.

I own 7-8 SapoVar soaps.

For me CRSW, Jabonman and Czech & Speak are better shaving soaps.

Mike’s Natural, LPL, and Caties Lux are on par with SV.

If I were to not shave with SV it might be Mike's. If I wanted another alternative, I'd use Mystic Water or B&M White Label. That isn't to say I don't use these because they are tallow or tallow/lanolin but they all have their place in what they do during the shave and after the shave.

As I have read a few times on the Italian forum, SV performance is described a soap with a little fat. A soap like Mike's I would describe as very stable soap with plenty of fat. I translate those to what is left on the skin after rinsing IE post shave feel. It isn't that it works better or worse than SV but I stick with SV for the sake of how consistent my shave results are along with the comfort of my skin. It's just a matter of taking out the variable of switching between too many different formulas. 

A couple notes though is as many SV fans that we may have here and elsewhere, there are plenty who liked the SV soaps but maybe didn't notice the difference between the various releases. I wouldn't deny people that think it would be too similar to purchase multiple soaps. My face can tell the differences between each of the releases so I share my thoughts in case it helps someone. I sent someone a sample of Tundra Artica soap last month and they had good results but it wasn't to their liking. I told him they can be favorable for many but won't be the favorite to all.

Many and a bunch are better. B&M, CRSW, WK, and GD all beat SV handily when it comes right down to slickness and post shave. SV does shine in scents though.
