Mitchell's Woolfat Ceramic Container

Post by KAV » Tue Feb 14, 2012 4:43 pm

I' ve been using one of two aluminum containers Phil once stocked for over two years now. I've got the AD for a scuttle or at least something a touch ostentatious to thumb my nose at the studied mediocrity of SOCAL. [-X
Are there any owners of the MWF with using feedback?

I love mine. I try to keep from breaking the lid. This ceramic container is unique and is reminscent of the very old ones we see in photos sometimes.

There is no other container for the Fat. And if you are very, very good, it will levitate for you. :wink:

Wendall,
Your calmly rational reply reinforced my initial thoughts.
Do you think the mill would give the sheep's names our pucks come from?

i had my puck in a TOBS container, worked well, but the soap gives me an even close shave now that i've got the ceramic dish.

i would not be without it. works excellent, gives me a better shave and is ultra classy looking

if you like the performance of MWF now, wait till you use it in the ceramic dish

:P

After initially buying a refill, I just had to get the dish. There´s just something with the shave from a levitating soap :lol:

I wouldn't consider anything other than the ceramic pot. It looks good and adds to the "old time" ambience of the shave.

Regards,
Rick

Now if they would put a non-slip handle on it then I would go for it immediately. You see I have a tendency to drop things when my hands just the least bit wet!

Actually store mine in an empty TOBS container. Works just fine for me and I do not have to impress anyone with the fancy ceramic container. :D My wife loves me regardless of how I store my FAT!

That's Bucket -- but it's pronounce "Bouquet" - or Boo-Kay for those of us more phonetic-friendly.

..... :wink:

Fair enough. But I must ask you -- does your Fat love you when it resides in anything other than the ceramic container? Like I said before -- nothing like the experience of levitation when shaving ..... and that can only come from the MWF official dish.

It's happy enough in the Kent wooden bowl, but really gets excited when it is housed in the container which was meant to hold it. :wink:

Wendell's MWF probably recites Shakespeare
while levitating.

KAV,
I have a little different take on this. I keep my MWF in a nice wooden container with lid that I purchased for not too much $ from Classic Shaving. I usually build a good load on the brush then face lather. It works quite well in that you can always add a bit of hot water to the brush or go back to the soap as required. If I am feeling a bit decadent, or it's winter time, I use a Dirty Bird scuttle to build the lather. Hot MWF lather is about as nice of a shaving experience to be had by mortals on this blue marble.

Whether or not one's got the bowl, it's just as good in stick form.

My history is rusty :oops: Was RichardIII Lancaster or York? MWF may not hold the bard of Avon in high esteem.I understand there is a society still trying to restore his name in history after William's highly political play.
And we think our politics gets nasty

Shakespeare or Chaucer

Somehow it seems more appropriate for Wendell's MWF to recite Chaucer in Middle English. Sheep have been around for a long time, making Middle English appropriate. And I imagine Wendell could more easily understand the Middle English than the contemporary version; if not, he could consult his friend the Venerable Bede. They share a common hood in Northumbria.

Out of respect I keep the Fat in only the highest quality plastic zip lock container.
