The Other James
Couple of observations:
The Lupo is IMO the best budget razor on the market currently.
Boellis soap is just as good as I remembered.
Plisson Evo synthetic's are really rather good. I think the fibres are the same as Simpsons use in the CH2, just set at a higher loft (22x57mm) makes for a very natural feeling brush, the splay feels just right to me... I will tentatively say best synthetic brush I've used thus far, obviously would be no good for those who like massive knots.
