    Default What type of bowl do you use?

    Im looking for a good bowl but lots are so much money for a dumb bowl to shave with. Does any one think this would be a good ideal? Name:  lg-1058-83F4B.jpg

    Got my bowl at the Sally Ann for 69 cents I believe it was. I found that one about 4-5 inches in dia. and about 3-4 inches deep with a slight flair out at the top works for me. Narrower and/or deeper and I am banging the brush against the sides while whipping up a lather.

    Right now I am using a ceramic bowl I found in our cabinets that we never use. (Don't tell my wife.) I am in the process of ordering a scuttle from Robert's Feats of Clay. I say if your not looking into a scuttle, then any soup mug or latte mug will do just fine.

    It is a matter of personal taste, I myself like your Semper Fi mug and can not see you doing any better.

    As long as you can get your brush in with ample room to make lather without the dimensions getting in the way, then you have the perfect bowl.

    The giant soup mugs are cool. I like to browse the secondhand stores for bowls and soap dishes. Here's what I came up with for a homemade scuttle/bowl:

    Another inexpensive, homemade scuttle

    Cheap...and the stainless conducts heat well. Keeps my lather nice and warm.

    Cheers!

    I use one of these 'royal blues' SRD bowls. The curved top keeps the lather from going over the edge of the bowl. That used to really annoy me until I got one of these here.

    Switched over to using a Suribachi a few months ago. Works great with all soaps and creams.

    I picked up a nice handmade miso soup bowl in china town was only $5. It has a rough texture on the inside which helps whip up the lather quick. Fits in the palm of my hand well too.

    Before scuttles, i used a metal candy dish because it would heat up quickly.
