    There is a long thread on MWF shave soap in which quite a few people, myself included, have admitted frustration in getting a good lather from it. There might be a solution for those that have trouble lathering the puck. That is why I am posting this.

    Many years ago, a member of another forum very kindly sent me a MWF shave stick that he had made for me to try and see if it would work better for me. Perform better it did. Every time I use this shave stick I am rewarded by an excellent lather. I still have no idea why this works for me and I still struggle with MWF in puck form.

    All you need to try this is a cheese grater, some water and a push up container, empty deodorant container should do, to put the grated MWF into.

    After I saw this MWF shave stick on your SOTD post I searched hi and low on the Internet and even visited the Mitchell's website to no avail, now I know why! :) P

    The fellow did a very nice professional job on making the shave stick complete with the shrink wrap label. It would be easy to think it was a stock item in the MWF line. Really too bad they don't have one in their line up of products.

    I have a DIY MWF shave stick that I use on travel. I quite enjoy it but did like loading on the puck better.

    The problem for me is that using the puck does not work all that well for me whereas the DIY MWF shave stick really does. Love to know why that is.

    When I have this difference between puck and stick, it's usually down to me not loading enough from the puck.
