this may be my new favourite. Either this or tabac. I received the kent version of mwf in the mail today. I lathered it up and it almost swallowed up my silvertip brush. I honestly didn't find it all that hard to lather. Let the puck soak in a bit if water and used a damp, but not sopping wet silvertip brush. Added dops of water to thhe bowl and it exploded. The below pic is after I lathered up 3 times. It was a thirsty brew which I like!! On my sensitive skin 2 passes with a karve oc B and one with a straight yielded 0 razor burn. Great, great soap! I so prefer the hard pucks personally.
