I am close to finishing the puck of MWF I have.. I still have a bunch of shaves in the MWF stick. I'll need to replace it soon and am wondering how close a match the Kent version everyone talks about is to MWF?

Not worth saving a few bucks if I don't use it in the long run..

Kent soap is not an imitation: it is the same soap (than MWF), only with a different label.

Yup. Kent and Bluebeards, I think are both just rebranded MWF.

I bought 2 pucks of MWF from Connaught for $20 including shipping. Took I think 8 or 10 days. Hard to believe a price on Kent can beat that.Smile

Yep, it's where I get my MWF from: Connaught. I have the ebonised black bowl. Cool, discreet, and sets off the whiteness of the MWF very nicely. With the AUD the way it is against the pound sterling right now, there are great bargains to be had. Should I get myself a Merkur slant? Hmm.....do I need...what else do I need ...

You gents are right..

I've been doing some digging and the Kent prices aren't much better any longer. I'd be better off getting the MWF ceramic bowl than some of the Kent offerings I found.

Wingham Wool Work in the UK is a good source if you're interested in a ceramic bowl and a bunch of pucks. Last time I ordered there I got the ceramic container and four pucks (plus the one the container came with for a total of five) for around $55.
