Fiori & Frutta Uomo - also known as Dovo / Merkur Shaving Soap is also quite slick.  The above post about lather sculpture applies here too.

I can't say for sure what the slickest is that I use but Coates is definitely on the short list. Surprisingly so since it's a cream.

Sooo true!

I am a fan of Talbot, GD, DG Ikarus, B&M Excelsior, WK Bufala, but I must admit that the AOS Shaving Creme (Oud in particular) turns out to be the slickest for me

Agreed, regarding AOS creams...and on that note, their old Rose Absolute cream is even slicker than today's formula, IMO.

As well, of course, the AOS tallow has slickness in abundance!

Well said, ddk13! I wouldn't necessarily recommend MW to folks because I have had problems with it, but I haven't found a slicker post-shave out there.

For me the slickest is BM Reserve base. should've been called Slick Rick instead of Reserve. it holds lots of water, and I don't mean lots of water by lots of water standard, I mean a normal load could hold probably close to a cup of water before It starts to breakdown. but it you want it so slick that you cant even look at it because you eyes slide right by it, then go easier on the water till it barely starts to get those foamy properties and you wont even feel the razor and blade glide across your face.

I have found that my concoction of Mitchell's Wool Fat and Haslinger Schafmilch (tallow formula) grated and combined in a 50/50 ratio and pressed into an empty TOBS tub provides me with the slickest lather of any of my 54 soaps, creams and various samples. It's not finicky. It's not difficult to lather like MWF is alone. It's not drying in post shave like MWF can sometimes feel. And the scent of the two combined is amazingly nice, sweet, fresh and clean as compared to either one separately. Right now the best soap (or cream) I have in my stable. And fortunately I stocked up on the tallow formula of Schafmilch so I'll be able to stay stocked with this until I die.

Soapy Science "Lollipop Citrus".  I was able to get off my college ring for the first time in many years with the shaving soap.  Feels slick while shaving also.

For me, there is something about Stirling. I just seem to get a little more slickness than most other soaps. Talbot's is another one that is damn close.

Hmm, I have both on hand waiting to be used! Sounds enticing.

Kind of funny how the idea of combining them came about.  There was a forum thread talking about sheep tallow soaps and people were debating the different ones, focusing mostly on the negatives.  When I considered the list of positives and negatives of these two I asked in the forum what people would think if they were combined.  Wouldn't you know it, a couple people said, why don't you do that and let us know the results.  So I did.  A few others followed suit and did the same.  Some used different ratios depending on the hardness of their water.  Everyone expressed similar results.  For me it's a keeper.  I truly love it.  And the scent of both was always too muttony and understated for me.  Together it now takes on a fresh clean soapy barbershop like scent.  Hard to explain.  Try a little bit and see what you think.  That's what I did.  Just a little bit at first.  Then a full tub.

I have Coates for sale. Lime, rose, and lavender.

You'll probably need to pry the AOS rose absolute from someone's dead cold hands. Used to be available on eBay but didn't last too long.
