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.
Two different soaps in terms of performance, to be sure. Maybe Squire's alternating between an old Vintage cake he's had for a while and a Current cake he just bought recently?

Rufus this cake of Williams was purchased close to a decade ago so I called it vintage on a whim though in today's shaving world perhaps that's not a stretch. No idea what the new stuff is like.

Squire, the current stuff works poorly, but it actually sucks, to be blunt.
