You're welcome..hope the day is going well.
very cool.i passed mine along as it was a sub par example.would love to get a nice cased one..i do have a canadian steel/bakelite handled war issue that is a splendid shaver.the canadian has the best blade exposure of the bunch..
Thank you, Joe! I've tried what you've suggested with tap water. I may give it a go with the distilled. Perhaps I should also check which moon phase is most beneficial for this soap...
It's not supposed to be this difficult, but I don't plan on giving up any time soon. It's the principle of the matter at this point.
stubborn is good.issues get solved..
make sure you are using a blue brush..
Excellent photo and gear, Doug!
Very nice, Doug!
My suggestion couldn't hurt. Personally, I wouldn't buy MWF because it is difficult to lather with hard water and the scent is meh at best. There are too many soaps that easily lather and for much less money, namely, Proraso, Stirling, Razorock, etc.
@wristwatchb Charlie, I hope you have a fantastic birthday.
I like you persistence Andrew. Perhaps you will eventually have the lather the way you like it.
Very nice shave and report Bruce.
Your suggestion is a good one, Joe. I wasn't discounting it.
For now, MWF holds a place in my collection as an ongoing project. I agree there are countless other soaps that are easier to use.
Thanks, Joe. I will continue trying until I use up this puck. At that point, I'll have to ponder if I want to get another.
Very nice shave Myles.

I did a 2 pass shave with very little touch up for BBS- shave, but got a weep on the corner of my right mouth. It happened during a one handed fool's pass with my non-dominant hand. I usually use 2 hands, but I like to switch techniques every so often. Obviously, the gear worked very well so I don't need to go into a play-by-play. Finished with the matching aftershave. It was an enjoyable shave. Tomorrow will be a non-shave day. Have a good evening, gents!
fine shave and pic Joe,have a great weekend..
Great looking setup, Joe!
