Good silky lather
After all the hype, I thought I would give this shaving soap a try. I have a number of different soaps / creams, depending on how I feel in the morning.
Firstly, I will say to those that struggle with making an effective lather - LET IT SOAK. Add warm water to the bowl, let the soap soften for a few minutes. Drain the water and use your already warm and moist brush to collect soap. I swirl for about 10 seconds and lather on the face (during the summer) or in a hot scuttle (during the winter months).
Soap produces a good smooth and silky lather. Not too slippery when shaving but the razor does seem to glide on the slickness.
Not much in the way of scent, but it is not unpleasant.
Not the easiest to wash off, but a hot wet towel removes the excess.
Would I recommend - Yes. Get one, if only for the ceramic bowl.

Essential
A blue million reviews on this soap so I will keep it short. Yes, it is that good. No, it is not hard to lather at all if you know how to work a hard soap, and if not there are a lot of good instructional posts and videos online. Especially from this site the soap is a super value. The smell is fine, I do not like a soap to linger and interfere with my cologne anyway so this is perfect, smells clean and fresh.

The bowl is nice, but a little wonky. IT is bigger than the soap and the soap rattles around in there when you lather - there is about a 1/4 inch gap. While I dig having the English ceramic branded bowl, I think a tight fitting wood bowl with lid would give a better brush loading experience. YMMV

Lovely, rich lather.
Combined with a fresh Feather blade and Proraso Ultra Sensitive Pre Shave Cream, also bought here, and the result was lush, probably the best wet shave I've had! The soap lathers well and produces a real cushion of foam. Difficult to say if it was the soap or the pre shave cream that made the difference but as I had zero irritation, I'll be sticking to this combination.

First Timer using Mitchell's
My first time trying Mitchells, incredible product! I didn't really have much of a problem generating a lather like some have said. Very neutral in scent. Post shave feeling was awesome! Incredible customer service and very fast shipping, especially too the states. Will gladly deal with again.

excellent product
I have only just got into DE shaving and am therefore trying various products to see what suits me best. I saw MWF reviewed on youtube and thought I would try it. Very easy to lather and use. I didn't bloom the soap. Gave a great shave with an EJ razor and Astra blade. Very nice neutral soapy scent. I will use this again and again I am sure

My new favourite.
Absolutely astounding soap. I've never had a greater post-shave feel, even frim significantly more expensive creams. The smell is neutral enough to be just soapy to my nose, which is fine. In fact, sometimes I prefer a lighter scent. I think this is one everybody should at least try. It's cheap, it's available, and it's a classic. I will say that it needs a bit of attention to lather well, though. Nothing difficult if you have alright water and have a bit of experience, but it's not Proraso cream for sure. I bloom it while I'm in the shower and it's good to go.

Best shave soap ever!
The MWFS in the ceramic dish is amazing. I have been using a glycerine based shave soap for many years but no longer! This soap lathers quickly and goes on the face nicely. Very soothing and slick, and makes for not only a nice shave but seems to moisturize the skin well afterwards as well. the ceramic dish is "OK" but a bit messy at first since the puck is at the top of the dish. My dish had the MWFS logo noticeably off-center, but since this is in my bathroom...not a big deal. Would have preferred a puck that was better fit for the average shaving bowl, but they are much larger. Would I buy again??? ABSOLUTELY! Fantastic shaving soap, and the scent smells like a clean soap versus a perfumed smell. Very nice.

Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap & Ceramic Dish
Great soap, slickness and post shave feel are A+.
I don't get those: "can't get a good leather from it...."
From the day it arrived it is in my regular rotation.
