    I'm on my second bowl of MdC. Glass jar first, now wooden bowl. As folk have already pointed out, it is expensive to buy with crazy shipping BUT the "cents per shave" cost is minimal. I have 12 good soaps in my rotation but every other day is MdC. The lather has an amazing gloss sheen to it. It...

    Wooden bowl for Pen's EF?

    You can "ease" the Pens into a DR Harris bowl. I've done it with a puck of EF. The soap is soft enough.
