    Well, originally I wouldn't have described CTS as a"Stoylin ripoff". As I now think of it, I'll have to wait to do my comparison, because there's one difference between the two-the CTS used to have Bentonite Clay, but it now has been taken out. Mine still has the clay in it. Course Stoylin soaps don't. That's an obvious difference. This will be-as they say-an "ongoing investigation". The reason I'll have to wait til later for my comparison is that I plan to make another CTS order in late summer, then I can do a comparison of two soaps that lack the clay. At this time, I'm guessing the Stoylin reviewer was talkinabout $$$$$$$. As for Stoylin, I'll be purchasing a glacial aftershave soon.(Must get ready for the hot, sticky summers we have here the Boston area.)

    Well, many years ago, I sniffed the real one(Drakkar Noir)and thought it to be pretty great.

    Love that razor. I’ve been eyeing them for a while. I’d like something to go between my r89 and r41.

    The Timeless Bronze is a good looking razor.
    I haven't shaved with either of the razors you mentioned so I can't offer any input. I have both the .38 SB and the .78 OC baseplates. They are both very efficient but the OC feels considerably more aggressive to me.
