After 3 days of not shaving I wanted a great lather to prevent nicks and weepers. So I went with what is now my #1 shaving soap! The Fat, Mitchell's Woolfat Shaving soap. And as Wendell will tell you I was not disappointed.

Lesismor almond soap. I liked it the first time I used it, and it's still growing on me.

Hot and muggy led me to use Proraso this morning, pre shave, tub and lotion.
Good shaving,

Soap containing goat milk from a couple in Oregon who had their own business going on eBay a year or two ago, bowl lathered. When I first tried it over a year ago the heavy scent irritated my skin. Now that it's aired out, some of the best lather I've tried. Alas, that couple no longer offers this soap on eBay, but I have two pucks left after this one...

Squire, you seem to be working through a puck of current Williams, even claiming you get close comfortable shaves with it. Now you mention vintage Williams. Please don't tell me you can't tell the difference between vintage and current Williams, it would burst my bubble. I'll still respect your opinions on blades, though.
