Yeah, I know they say it's kind of a bipolar scent, in that you either love it or hate it - but I absolutely love it and my wife always comments positively so that's a double win for me because that's not 100% of the time for all soaps. I agree that it does last forever (in a good way). I picked up a barely used one as well from someone else in the forum who wasn't a fan but that one will have to wait a long while . I use their shave stick too - larger than most competitors but I think it lathers slightly better than Arko (scent blows Arko out of the water of course, but I don't dislike the soap smell of Arko). Palmolive is decent, La Toja works well and has a subtle appealing scent, but their travel case leaves much to be desired. I'll probably add it to a travel stick container like the Palmolive. <sorry that was a side discussion lol>.
Yes it is indeed a razorock handle - "super knurl." (https://www.italianbarber.com/colle...rock-super-knurl-handle-316l-stainless-steel?)
It's usually sold out but apparently is back in stock. Great heft and phenomenal knurling. You can't go wrong with it. I seem to be reaching for it more often. Pick one up
