No. I did put warm to hot water the first time I tried it. Then I remembered that Cris from AnotherCutAbove does not bloom or anything to his MWF prior to loading the brush. It seems the drier start the better.Did you prime the MWF in very hot water first?
I’m tending to bowl lather more and more These days. It’s a common misconception amongst people that it takes too long and they haven’t got time to mess about on a morning!09/09/20

I picked up this razor as part of a trade, it has an edge reportedly put on by @Fergiebilly, it is a very smooth shaver.
Another great lather, this time i used a nut sized piece of the @BrianH Sig Soap and whipped it up in the bowl, easily enough for 3 passes.
I completed my 2 pass routine without any issue, i even managed to do some ATG strokes under my bottom lip-line to clear that area.
Some very light indication here and there from the Alum block finishing with a nice post shave with the Proraso Red.
Result DFS++, i am definitely getting there.
Stay safe and enjoy your day All.
