Old-school style shaving bowl is made of quality porcelain and boasts the Grooming Lounge Crest. Hand-made in England, bowl can house most any shaving soap and is ideal for working up a rich lather for any shaving brush. Looks pretty handsome in the bathroom too.
Size: Approximately 2 1/8" tall, 3 1/2" opening.
To Use: Drop in a cake of shaving soap or mix in a cream with hot water. Dip in brush and have at it.
To be clear, this bowl is not a need. You can make lather in your hand, on your face, or in a thrift store mug. But if you want to add something special to your kit, this bowl is a great addition.
I've used this bowl for about a month. I prefer a vessel for making lather because of its heat retention. Having a lather stay warm through the shave is nice and metal bowls will lose heat faster. That said, if you live in a place that is really cold in the winter, you may want to spend your money on a scuttle to really up the temperature.
The silver-rimmed bowl is great to look at on the counter. I leave it on our small sink and the wife hasn't gotten sick of it yet.
About the shape; the bowl fits well in the palm of my hand, so there's no worry of dropping it when loading the brush. Theres a little protrusion at the bottom of the bowl that may help when swirling your brush to build lather. The lather stays in the bowl more than I expected which is nice.
Overall, I look forward to using this on a daily basis.
