hey peeps can i please have some shaving mugs/scuttle recommendations? thanks
I personally wouldn’t use that type of scuttle in the video,I’ve got 2 and they’re purely ornamental. A bowl like the Captains choice or a mug like the Proraso are more useable. If you really want warm lather the wider scuttles are fine, but I’m too clumsy for ceramics as I’ve found to my cost!so i'm watching this video by geofatboy on youtube (i've learnt a lot on his vids i like them)
another noob question, so do you essentially need to use a shaving soap/puke with the scuttles? because he puts it on the top of the scuttle
so thats just a mug not a scuttle though right?Welcome to B&B, Sir saj1985!
I heartily recommend the hard plastic Proraso mug! Essentially unbreakable, nice handle, ridges on bottom will either hold
pukepuck or help lather cream (which I use it for)! Affordable as well!
that looks a bit like this oine i saw on amazon, im tempted by the price got decent vreviews only thing is i dont like the big qshave logoI used a bowl until about a month ago. I picked up a cheapo Scott from Amazon and the warm lather has made it immensely more pleasant to shave. I would like to what I bought, but I’m in the US and the link probably won’t help in a different country. Search for Savanna Shave Scuttle.

for a high end scuttle, search Google for Moss or Georgetown scuttle.
i think i want a scuttle because i can pour in hot water from the kettle and have a warm latherI like the ones from Captain's Choice, a B&B Vendor. I have a ceramic one and just got a copper one

I also have a Becker Scuttle that does not get much use.

I prefer Scott's bowls because they are shallow enough that you don't clink your brush against the edges and they are made with ridges on the bottom that help make great lather.

I didn’t care for that one either because of the big logo. Call me picky, but that’s how I felt. I searched for the scuttle that I bought on the UK Sita and it isn’t there.that looks a bit like this oine i saw on amazon, im tempted by the price got decent vreviews only thing is i dont like the big qshave logo

looks identical to the qshave scuttle just hasnt got the 'qshave' logo
It would work fine, but it would work better if there were ribs and/or protrusions in the inner bowl. That gives the brush something to beat against to help make the lather. You could glue some coins in the bottom to give it that rough texture.whats your lots thought on this diy scuttle?
