    I use a Pyrex bowl with a sealable lid so that I can have several soaps on the go without them drying out.

    I use several different types. Oversized, an old spice mug, a wooden bowl, and a tupperware bowl.

    Default What kind of mug do you use?

    (New here. One of the many who have finally gotten disgusted with canned shaving "stuff" - seems like most of the cans don't make it close to 3/4 of the way through before losing pressure, and you can't even recycle the stupid can when you're done - as well as the prospect of having to "upgrade" to a high-tech, umpteen-blade uber shaver ... with each cartidge costing an arm and a leg. I'm lurking now, trying to absorb as much info as I can.)

    The shaving scuttles look cool, but is it hard to find soaps that fit them?. (Classic Shaving lists one brand, out of several, that fits. Haven't looked at a whole lot of other places.)

    Actually I am not sure I buy my soap from Classic Shaving. I just want to add putting near boiling water in the scuttle and soaking your brush in it while you shower makes for one great shave.

    I agree with you Rich. Hot, hot water makes a world of difference.

    In terms of mugs I finally found a scuttle mug and I really like it. A cake of soap fits in the top just fine. I do not know who made the scuttle mug but it is really just the right size. I place my "Hot Shot" in the bottom with water and within 3 minutes I have very hot water. I then place my brush in the water and let it soak. Wondeful lather and feels good also.

    I have 2 mugs in use, a pewter and a ceramic. I have two old scuttles but I prefer a mug with a cover on it. It keeps the dirt out of the soap and the scented soaps seem to keep their scent longer with a cover.

    Hey yan,
    The ClassicShaving soaps for scuttles do work well.
    I have several mugs of different types. I usually get regular sized soap for my standard mugs. When the soap gets a little smaller through use, that's when I transfer it to a scuttle. Then I get to try another soap for the mug!

    I use a few :

    Deep 'traditional' ceramic shaving mug;

    A ceramic Scuttle;

    A shallow wooden mug with a lid,

    and about a dozen of the RubberMaid 'StainShield' containers.

    Love em all, for their own uniqueness!

    I use whatever is handy. I have a few of the rubbermaid containers that work well, seal tight, don't leak, and won't break.
    Otherwise I have a solid rubber shave mug from Norvabarbersupply that has a little indent in the bottom that perfectly fits a puck of williams soap, as well as an old spice mug, a Burts Bees mug, various cereal bowls, coffee mugs.....NOTHING is SAFE!
