A very close and comfortable two pass shave this morning, removing the stubble that has grown over the weekend. Four days growth cleared away in minutes, and no clogging in the Mühle, which is not really surprising considering the blade gap. This is an excellent razor capable of the closest of shaves.

I started off with MWF but I could only get it frothy not creamy - It's been a while since I used MWF but I don't remember it being such a poor performer.
Is it a new puck, or just revisited an old puck?

This soap on my my wants lists. I'm hoping to get some for my birthday in a month or so time.
Excellent! Hope you get your wish for celebrating your upcoming birthday. Grab the aftershave too!! Hahahaha....
I can't get aftershaves ship to my place.
I bought a few soaps from the UK online vendor because there was a small sale (10%) and a huge shipping discount.
Too bad they don't carry the FOCS....

it was bought about 6 months ago
Ah, there are a few members on here that seem to have duff pucks purchased from March/April 2020 onwards, particularly from connaught.

There is a thread here about it. We're trying to work out where the batch started and ended. Also, if you still have the box, there is a batch code on the box opening, maybe the opposite tab to the one you used, that would be handy. It's a shame Mitchells do seem to put out the odd bad puck from time to time. Added to the soap being difficult to lather if you add water to fast.
