Lather - post up your favorite brush with a head of lather

A favorite vintage Ever-Ready handle, with my least favorite knot of all time - pure mid-century nylon. A good-sized snurdle of Proraso Green will never reach its potential. :sob:

I had to take the photo quickly just to get the lather looking this lame, weak, airy, and useless. The nylon retains a huge amount of water that can only be removed with a towel. Well, I suppose I could fling some of the excess H2O across the den if I had room for a full major league wind-up and follow-through.

Everyday is an experiment really. The big take away? - "Snurdle." I need to use that one for sure! :)
