    by , 07-19-2011 at 06:10 AM
    A lot of these mini articles originate from customer enquiries. At least once a week I get an email that goes something like this... “Joe, I'm new to Italian shaving products and I can't figure out why the Italians would make shaving soap in 1 Kg loafs? That is a lot of soap!”
