Fellow soap people,

Antica Barbieria Colla now has the Almond Oil Hard Soap for sale. It does not appear to be the same formula as the old hard soap (old ingredients were the same as the cream), so it may be a reformulation. Or they mis-labeled the old hard soap ingredients, lol.

Cheers,

Steve

I purchased some for Christmas and have used it a few times. It's a good soap and I will continue to use it, but I have four other soaps that will continue to rotate ahead of it. I'm more impressed with the two ABC boar brushes that see a lot of use, one being seven or eight years old. I'm not a cream guy, so I'm unable to speak to that.
Ordering from Italy was a breeze even closely ahead of the holidays, and that was the only source at the time. Perhaps Phil will grab some the next time he puts in an order.

We actually have it already. I've had it in stock since last October if memory serves me correctly.

Missed it Phil, apologies.
I also don't want to give any negative pov of this soap. As Tommy said it lathers great and shaves wonderfully, it's only that I have a few equally great soaps already in rotation so it just sees less use for now. It could easily move to the front of the line at any time. It's an easy soap to recommend.

No worries Bill. I actually cannot use ABC soap due to the Almond oil. It lights my face on fire.
