Received today, so 9 days shipping UK to Australia. Not bad at all.
Bowl and soap is nice. This is actually the part I was after. The bowl actually isn't exactly the same as the one pictured on Ebay, it has more "curves" in it. If I wanted to be real picky, you can still see light lathe marks in the wood, but as I say only if I really wanted to be picky. As for the soap, I don't have enough knowledge to know if it's MWF or not.
I also don't have a non-Ebay bowl that I can compare it against.
The brush certainly doesn't have a "premium" feel or look to it. Looking at it, it's a VS80. This sells for 4.95 pounds on kentbrushes website. Wood isn't exactly finely finished or polished, varnish isn't exactly glossy smooth and there's quite a bit of excess glue around the knot.
That being said, effectively by buying the set I got the brush and the razor for $4AU extra compared with buying just the bowl and soap. The brush'll make an ideal emergency/backup/travel brush.
The Wilkinson Sword Extra 2 is really nice as well, beautiful green handle ( no it's meant to be that way ) , light and a very nice DE ( well it does have two blades ). I know you guys will be scrambling for it once I list it on BST
Whole lot cost me $27AU, so given that the MWF refill to buy "locally" is around $25 AU, think I've done well.
(Sorry only got my cheap point and shoot at work with me at the moment )
Enjoy! I really enjoy MWF--it's second in my rotation after Tabac. The only other soap I have right now is Mama Bear, which is great, but I definitely prefer triple-milled tallow soaps to glycerin.
I still have to try some Pre de Provence, which is on the plan next paycheck
