Not loving it! I recently posted in hot buys, and bought, almond with wood bowl, and coconut with wood bowl I realized my first shave had residual soap in brush, which made for decent shave Second shave was disappointing. This time clean badger brush. For what sells for up to $30 I don’t feel like it performs like a $11.07 that I paid for it. Found a few reviews and many say the same thing...... But as BigD Said, at least I have a nice wood bowl. It seemed like it lathered easy. But was thin and had no back bone. It easily dissipated. Not very slick just not a pleasure to shave with. Ended up getting a nick. You can not blame my technique I can get great leather from notoriously difficult soaps. What gives? And what’s up with EDTA? Anyone like trumpers?
