That's been my experience as well. If you use it daily such that it never dries out... it's not a problem to lather Williams. It's actually one of the best shaving soap values out there.
Plus it foams in hard water... not many soaps can easily do that.
Williams was my Sunday morning soap for several years. I would just shave a few times week- electric during the week if I needed it, and a wet shave on Sunday mornings before church.
