Whilst I love the MWF/ceramic bowl, the Kent version is great for travel.
I need a ceramic bowl too!
I could probably load Tabac on a Q-tip and still get a decent lather
You need to let that bowl dry out once in a while. Keeping it wet will ruin it.
I just got the ceramic bowl last week, and it is worth it! The only problem is you need to grate the puck to fit the bowl.
Wow- a pregnancy worth of shaves!
God loves you so much, that he made you read this, just to let you know.
Actually I have seen much worse condition wooden bowls with just a couple of months of use. Eight months with the pictured bowl and it is still in reasonably good condition, it either had excellent care or was sealed well during manufacture.
As for eight months of using just one soap puck, I doubt I could do that with what I have in the bathroom and shave drawer. I like some variety in life I guess.
Where's the "Like" button on B&B? I could use one for this thread!

My congratulations for such a fete!
As I use MWF as regular part of a rotation, I'm happy to see that it is possible to actually finish a complete puck of the fat.
Of course it's dark, it's a suicide note.
I finished a puck of MWF recently. At first, as jkh stated, the puck seemed too small for the ceramic bowl, but it swelled to fit after a few uses.
Man, I love that stuff! I need to order some more.

Did it take everyone just as long to finish a puck? I am having a difficult enough time not going A.D.D. on my 30 days of MdC adventure, let alone staying with one soap for eight months. I know once I'm done with this commitment, I don't know that I will stick to just one soap.
8 months of Mitchell's is a testament to its goodness.
As much as I would LOOOOOOVE the ceramic bowl I am getting perfectly good service out of one of the tins that WCS sells. It fit almost perfectly, plus that little tin is surprisingly durable. It travels extremely well, plus is quite small and doesn't take up a lot of room in my dopp. I may just stick to refills and put them right into those tins and the plastic tubs!
And yes, MWF is a fantastic soap!

I've tried the MWF once, and I'm an immediate believer. Great soap. Good to know it will last!
