Buyer Beware - Samurai Mug

I purchased a mug on ebay and it isn't what would be expected. It's tiny. Not suitable for most brushes. Might work for small travel brushes.

Maybe the right size for a Wee Scot.

For more perspective shown with a West Coast Shaving apothecary mug.

I should mention that as pictured on ebay, the logo wasn't displayed.

I bought it without knowing it was a martial arts themed mug. It turns out this is the second time I bought on. The first time the martial arts logo was displayed. I bought the first one and had it shipped directly to my son, who has a black belt in Samurai Sword. He never told me it was a trinket, too small to be of any use. I didn't know until the current one arrived.

Just beware that you are buying a trinket, not a usable mug.
 
I bought an all-black one off Amazon, probably the same manufacture, that was way smaller than I thought it was going to be.

Its the mug of shame. You get this mug if you can't finish a stick of Arko.
 
I looked at the listing and it's not a good one. Were you aware of the Samurai logo on the side? At the very least, they should've included measurements in the listing and a few more photos...
