This was my first set for my first experiences with a straight razor. I was worried about getting bad products and mistaking it for personal error. This kit took the stress out of searching for individual items.
The only issue I had with this set is the "Geo F Trumper Eucris Shaving Soap in Wooden Bowl". The wooden bowl is really cool, but the soap itself does not hold a lather. You can lather up your face and in less than a minute it dries to your skin. I looked around to see if I was just "doing it wrong", but many people have reported a similar issue. It appears to only happen to some batches, but for such an expensive soap I would expect it to at least hold lather.
