Funny, I've been going back to the future lately with the recently acquired Gamechanger .84 and Mamba .70 'special'. They are both super efficient, but may try a Gillette Slim or Goodwill tonight thanks to this thread...
Anyone else think Blackship Grooming Co. 'Captain's Pipe' soap may be a contender? I also liked RR/TFS 'Tobacco Verde' and their 'Tobacco #1,2 and 3 series' although I believe they are no longer available..
Generally we apply lather to the medium we are about to shave. If shaving your bowl is your thing then have at it. I kid. Did some bowl lathering getting started, but now find face lathering to be more beneficial/enjoyable. Also agree with D-T-R and atlantic59 above..
Got tired of waiting around for a decently priced Castello 55 so I commissioned a '55'-esque leadwood/mopane pot shaped pipe with straight vulcanite stem, military mount, and burl insert from carver Jan Pietenpauw. He asked if I would prefer a smooth or rough finish pipe. I replied "surprise me"...
Have a ginormous Ben Wade (big Elmore Leonard and 3:10 to Yuma fan) freehand with the normal sized black acrylic stem. No idea where it is right now but will look for it. Probably would be a decent shape for a Churchwarden stem..
