This is the first lathering with the new Jayaruh #10 synthetic shave brush. I chose Williams Shave Soap because of its supposed reputation for hard to lather. I keep my Williams in Grandpa Lowe's shaving mug.
I wet the brush and gently squeezed it. I then loaded the brush for 30 seconds which is my standard for loading hard soaps.
I added a little water and began to make the lather.
After adding a little more water, this is what I ended up with. Plenty of lather for two or three passes. The brush is soft but has plenty of backbone. I plan to start using this brush starting Saturday, July 11.
