Most UK wet shavers know how highly regarded Taylor of Old Bond Street is. Note that this deal includes the wooden bowl. The price for soap in wooden bowl is £21.95 on Taylor of Old Bond Street website. As a wet shaver with sensitive skin I have done plenty of research and can confirm that this soap is easy to load onto the shaving brush. Creates dense lather which is very slick on the face so you do not have to reapply the lather every time you go over the same area. It also does not leave face dry post shave. All in all, a steal of a deal.
