    I saw a kg block of this soap for £30 and wondered if anyone had tried it.

    indeed tried it a few years back.

    nice soap. however, imho, not appreciably better than cella brick.
    almond scent of two is almost identical; virtually same lather and shave performance.

    btw, these bricks are 'kilo' as in in original molded volume, not final weight.

    and, where did you see the listing?

  3. I think he may be referring to Antica Barberia Mondial.

    I haven't tried this soap, but I am VERY interested. Especially the citrus scent. I check on it every once in a while but it always seems to be out of stock. I could try the smaller 150ml container, but it's $17. The Kg is listed for only $10 more at $27. I know it's ridiculous reasoning as I really do not need another Kilo of soap. :a6:

    And in a much smaller size.

    It's a very nice soap. Not Grooming Dept, but very nice. One of my favorites of the Italian soaps, but it's not SV.

    I would call it a soap (not a shaving cream).
     
  6. This is NOT Antica Barbiera Colla! Just so that you know....

    If he saw a kilo of ABC for 30 pounds I'd like to know where. Wouldn't that be a steal?

    I've tried ABC soap and liked it, but not enough to pay for more than the sample size I'd purchased to try it. For that kilo price I might reconsider.

    Happy shaves,

    We're talking two different soaps - AB Mondial and AB Colla - both Italian, but not in the same price category at all.

    AB Mondial is available at Connaught, too, link. The price is right. Small size; link.

    ABC soap is another matter. It's a lot more expensive. Link. What, maybe ten times what ABM costs?
     
  10. 10x Yikes!

    Then £30 is a steal.
     
  11. Never buy a kilo without first trying. Really.

    I agree with @Macfrommichigan on this.
     
  13. +2! Great concept!! :a21:
     
  14. It would definitely be a steal if it was £30 for a kilo of ABC.

    Mondial on the other hand seems to be a different and a less expensive brand, probably along the lines of Cella and P.160
