I learned that apparently the best way to work with Ogallala soap is to use this brush soaked and mostly squeezed, load liberally with soap, and face lather. MAYBE you'll need to dip the tips of the brush in water, but I get the best results with a drier mix with this soap.

Prep: Hot Shower / Very Hot Water Soak
Razor: 5/8 Dame Stoddard & Kendall "Hub" razor
Hones: 100/200 felt/3" Chestnut Strop
Brush: 24mm Silvertip in American Ash
Uber: RazoRock XXX
AS: Alum Block & Jock Soap Tall Drink & OBR Sandalwood
Result: Still shaving with this razor after honing it this week. I stropped the heck out of it, and it was plain old great! Smooth as silk and left me feeling NO sting from the ALum. The Jock Soap Tall Drink has a slight menthol scent to it, but it leaves you feeling very comfortable and soft. The OBR is one of my favorite scents to splash on. No Cologne necessary. I used my giant restaurant mixing bowl with my 6" Silvertip, and XXX makes a great lather once you get the water right. Today I managed to get the water right. This was one of my best shaves in a while, and I feel very gratified due to the effort involved in the learning curve honing. The extra stropping really pays off! The edge has actually gotten better than first off the stones.
Happy Shaving Men! Keep the Gear Coming!
