B&B's Man in Italy
Sir, do you own synthetic brushes? The Ach. Brito soaps just seem to match perfectly with them, literally exploding from a synthetic knot. I love this combo so much that nowadays the Simpson Trafalgar Series is almost all I use with them. It's all quick and easy! And do remember the Italian Master Barbers' Technique (improperly known as my method).This was my first day using Mogno. I think there is a little learning curve with this type of bar. I had a good lather initially, but just about ran out in the middle of the third pass. I rubbed the bar directly on my face like Arko. I also did not think my initial outing was a slick as Arko. I have some experimenting to do.
Do you guys rub the bar on your face like Arko? Or do you load the brush directly from the bar?
I was so intrigued with this soap, I decided to design a 3D printed case for mine. I think it came out okay. I used a low resolution for this test so it would print quicker, and i could then verify the fitment. I can most likely get it quite smooth and more finished looking. I made the sides taller than the bar because I was thinking I would load the brush directly from the bar. If its best to just rub the bar on the face, i will probably fit the sides closer to the actual dimensions of the soap. It was a fun little project for this afternoon. Then I come on here to post this, and I see there are already a couple of very recent posts about how to store Mogno. So this is quite timely I guess.

Beautiful looking case, Sir.
