That gets an "attaboy!" From me. Well done Primo.
Thank you my vintage junkie cohort. Wondering if I should (and I am tempted to) grate the soap and press it back into the bowl? Opinion?

Clap  Primo, I would use that vintage gem just the way it is, and not grate it.

Williams was reformulated each time it changed hands about 5-6 times since the 70's. I doubt Combe even 'makes' the soap anymore and just buys soap noodles and process it into the abomination we know today.

I'm surprised AOS tallow is still on ebay, that guy must have sold a couple thousand pucks already.

The dude probably bought out the warehouse & has a couple pallet's worth.

As for William's, the death knell was Van Der Hagen. Better smell, better packaging, good enough quality. They slowly (or quickly) just ate up the shelf space that William's once took up. It was inevitable it would get the axe.
