One of the few French products that I can say...is truly worth the difference in price. There are different grades of Sodium Potash my friends...and Osma offers the best. Is there a difference in performance...don't really care...my alum block is Osma !!!
Notes on our reviews:
...we are not attempting to portray every product that we review with glowing praise and self-serving promotion, we are attempting to give you our honest opinions. As such, if we do begin gushing out praise, then it's a heartfelt and based upon our personal likes and proclivities. Otherwise expect clinical and objective comments or, in the worse cases, criticisms when necessary.
...the opinions and views expressed in our reviews are provided as yet one more piece of the never-ending shavers puzzle. You are encouraged to seek out as many discussions and other reviews as possible, rife on the shaving forms, and to explore the manufacturer's own websites for precise specifications and descriptions. Although we do our absolute best to provide accurate information as well as our own observations, we are most likely sure to make a few mistakes, here and there, and we will most assuredly keep vigilant in keeping those to a minimum.
