They are running a special and sent me an email.
Has anyone tried this soap?
If so, how was the performance? Which scents has anyone tried? Seems a little pricy?

I assume he means classicshaving.com. I received the same email this morning.

I haven't tried the soap.

I was just taking a look at that. Olive oil based shaving soaps are usually a pain, but I haven't tried it personally.

Yeah I was thinking that. The scent or lack thereof was the only thing that keeps from selling everything but my woolfat and being a one soap man. Wink

So.. If these are that great maybe the scents will push them over the top?

On other boards, the Classic Shaving Wool Fat soap isn't regarded very highly. I've never tried it myself, mainly because its normally pretty expensive (about $20 a puck) and I already like MWF.

Well if it's easier to lather than MWF for some members, I would think many would give it a try. MWF lathers fine for me (Central Texas softened water, LOL)

I had a puck of the Classic brand Wool Fat and I couldn't get a usable lather out of it. Nobody wanted it on the soap trade thread, so it got sent to shower duty.

at $20 a puck for Classic Shaving Wool Fat vs. $18 for MWF from BullGooseShaving.net I'll stick with MWF.

I am with Johnny that there is only one "fat." However, I bought some Haslinger Ewe's Milk soap with lanolin from Bernd back around the holidays, and it is a decent stand-in. I know that has nothing to do with the original question, but there you go. Blush

Mike's Natural Soap is another good lanolin-enriched soap.

That's a lot of money for a soap that won't lather it'self! LOL

Well it was right when I started wet shaving and it was a gift, so I didn't stress over it too much. Life's too short to try to force yourself to use a product that doesn't work for you.

Well this is enough discussion to make me dust off my MWF.

Whenever a product "compares" itself to another product, and this one is by the use of the name, I always go for the original. Just sayin'. MWF is awfully good. Big shoes to fill and I don't see olive oil doing that.
