Moss Scuttle

Item Description

What an absolute gem of a shaving accessory this is. I put my Savile 3824 and the Moss Scuttle in the sink, let it all fill up with very hot tap water while I took my shower.

Emptied it and filled it back up with hot water again. Began to build lather on my face, (which I really like doing) and put the lather filled brush in the top of the scuttle and made my first pass.

I couldn't believe how warm the brush and lather stayed when I lathered up for the second pass. My dad use to have one of those Schick Hot Lather machines and my lather was warmer than what use to come out of it, it felt great!

I dinged the Scuttle on price just a little, because for some it would be hard to justify the cost since you can get a 6" soup mug for under $10, but this scuttle might be worth the money to you because not only will you have hotter lather at your disposal, but because the scuttle doesn't have to stand in the sink filled with hot water, it saves some space while shaving too!

It's very solid, Sara didn't skip on material used, seems durable but I wouldn't test the handle too much, it's the weakest point of the scuttle, but very solid also.

I think it would be a little pain if you build lather in a mug and have to transfer it into the scuttle, not sure of how many would like having to do that because the top of the scuttle is large enough to freshen up the brush, but it wouldn't provide me with a deep enough bowl to whip up great lather, YMMV.

It's perfect if your building the lather on your face, did I say it really keeps your brush and lather nice and warm?:smile:

I have been shaving for a very long time without a scuttle. I am sure that I could continue to shave for a very long time without a scuttle. That said, the Moss Scuttle is a pleasant enhancement to the ritual. Sara provides excellent service. And it makes even those of us living in Paradise feel warm and fuzzy in the morning.

I got a small Moss scuttle in 2009 and I love it! I keep reading that this scuttle is not made for bowl lathering, but I do it. I just use a swirling, churning motion and I have no problem whipping up lather from soaps or creams. The Moss scuttle is a durable workhorse!

Received a Small Moss Scuttle off of the BST...

Great performance from a very attractive little scuttle. I am tempted to get a large one to match as well (y'know, to have the complete set).

Fits my 24mm TGN Silvertip knot perfectly, and naturally fits my smaller brushes as well.

It is expensive due to shipping from Nova Scotia, but considering it should last a long time it is worth it in my opinion.

The quality is top-notch, hand-turned, very solid, and attractive finish.
