    Does anyone know if it is available in Australia? - I'd love to try it

    I bought it via shavenation.com and they ship internationally; you should give it a go

    Thanks for the info HoracioAR - it's the $34.00 shipping that puts me off a bit, though.

    Go to tulumba.com. shipping looked much more reasonable to Australia, aroun $8. They also have the full line of Arko creams and after shaves which are pretty damn good as well.

    I used this stuff for the first time today...I'm impressed! Can't beat it for the price. I'd take Arko over the Conks and such in the $5 range any day.

    I was amazed at how well it lathered up in almost no time...had enough lather in the brush after 30 for a 3 pass and then some! Scent isn't bad, hard to put a comparison to it.

    You can also go to BestShave.net and order it from there. Their shipping rates are reasonable to the US (they are based in Turkey) so I don't know that AU would be much different. They also have the "infamous" $3 Turkish Horsehair brushes and amazing prices on DE blades. Just be prepared to wait a few weeks for things to arrive.

    ETA - Orders over $50 are shipped free worldwide.

    It's next on my to order list, this thread is not making it easy to keep from placing that order.

    I ordered up a bunch of these brushes and alum blocks. These are good to have to hand out when people are interested in starting wet shaving.

    Thanks for the link!

    I have a couple on the way as well...for the same reason! I like to give people I'm introducing to the hobby a little something to get them started and these brushes work perfectly for that.

    I have one stick of Arko, and I love the lather and the scent. It's so thick and creamy it sometime takes a little bit longer to rinse the cream off the bevel of the razor.
