These photos were taken with my iPhone 5 camera.

They depict several key points.

1. despite its small size, the Huntlee (Wickham) Super Smooth soap tin is easy to load from.
2. Huntlee (Wickham) Super Smooth is a potent and copious soap.
3. Muhle STF V2.0 25mm is a lathering beast

Keep in mind ... the last two photos are of the brush after 3 full passes ... I'm not kidding!

Excellent, Ravi! I would never have imagined you becoming a synthetic-brush man! Biggrin

I can't believe it. I hated synthetic brushes until I tried the Plisson. Now Ravi's got me ordering a Mühle STF. What will I do with all my other brushes? I concur with Super Smooth, which has easily become one of my favorite soaps. I did remove the soap from the small containers and put them in a larger containers--less messy and easier to load, although soap nearly loads itself.

Very nice, Richard.
I thank you and Ben ... I have Plisson synthetics on their way from France!
I too would have never predicted this prominence of synthetic brushes in my den a year ago ...
