I just ordered this scuttle from World Market for $7.99. This might turn out to be an unbelievable good deal. They call it a warmer pitcher.

Product Dimensions: 6.8"W x 4"D x 3.75"H

other forum members have been using them with success for a while.

i see no reason why it wouldn't work as a brush scuttle.

Looks like a great deal for using small brushes.

Slantman,
Imagination and improvisation work wonders in the traditional shaving world. Your scuttle is a good example. Well done.

I've been trying to find one with a metal inner cone, but you may have just stopped my search.

Yes, please let us know how it works for you.

I have one of those and what I do is put boiling water in both the outer jacket and the pouring area, and use it to dip the brush in when mixing lather or just want warm lather on my face. In recent months I've been doing that instead of using a scuttle. I keep my soap inside a mug and do my lathering there.

Last few days, however, I've been cold water shaving.

I am not sure if boiling water is good for a brush. I usually nuke water for my scuttle no more then 50-60 seconds.

Jerry, can you please post a link to World Market? I'm not having much luck looking for it.

I am going to ask a question that may sound stupid. Feel free to facepalm while reading if you need to.

I've never used a scuttle. Currently I have a Col Conk apothecary mug (the tall slender one) that I soak the bristles in while I shower. Then I drain the mug and place it into the sink basin, which I partially fill with hot water. After I've face lathered, I place the brush in the mug while shaving; this keeps the shaving cream somewhat warm.

What does a scuttle give me that this process does not?

Keeps your brush and lather warmer (or hotter) without destroying what you made. I only nuke the water 50-60 seconds and leave it in the lower chamber of the scuttle. A shave mug or bowl will usually get colder quicker. Its not a good idea to boil water in a scuttle. Too hot.

I received the scuttle from World Market yesterday in perfect condition. Used it twice with excellent results. It is actually large enough to mix lather right in it but with some clanging of the brush.
I nuked water in it for 50 seconds and it kept lather and the brush warm through three passes. The handle is very large for an easy grip and didn't get hot when I was heating up the water. Overall impressions are very favorable.

Jerry, i have the same warming pitcher "WP". It does indeed work brilliantly as a brush scuttle. Enjoy!

I have one of these on the way now. It will join my DB, Georgetown, Becker, Moss, and Smith in my "scuttle rotation," as long as I can keep SWMBO's hands off of it.

Just about the only thing I don't rotate is my towel. SWMBO takes care of that.

Thats a great price for a "scuttle"!
It seems that its size its perfect to start building the lather on the scuttle and finish it on the face.

Its sold as a warmer for gravies and sauces or to keep liquids hot however, I adopted it as a scuttle. The inner bowl is 3" across and about 3.25" deep. For the price its hard to beat.
