I would agree that Robert Becker's are just about the least expensive - but good quality - scuttles available.

If you want cheap, make your own. Any two bowls where one sets half way into the other will work. Put hot water in the bigger bowl and set the smaller bowl in it. This will keep the soap in the top bowl warm. Look at some of the old posts in this category for examples. But ...

Dirty Bird scuttles are $54 (for bowl lathering) and their brush scuttles are $38 (for face lathering). They are top notch and will last a lifetime (if not dropped).

Does Dirty Bird make a one-piece brush scuttle (where the bowls are attached)?

Yes they do, but you have to custom order it.

It's apparently the same price as the bowl scuttle.

Interesting. Might be better to just get a small scuttle though, huh?

Presently I am face lathering, and with my AOS lemon shaving cream it is working wonderfully.

Tonight, though, I tried Burt's Bees natural shave cream and could produce NO lather. None. At. All.

I would like to try bowl lathering, and have contemplated just using a bowl here at the house, but maybe a scuttle would be the best bet...

The scuttle is no better or no worse than a good bowl as for as making lather, where the scuttle shines is keeping the lather warm.

Thank you. I just found a good bowl here at the house I will try out during my next shave.

oops, sorry posted (my new bowl) in the wrong place, but fwiw... Robert Becker's scuttles, are the nicest and least expensive of what I've seen.

I must research how to do that with soap, as I just received some Proraso white that I want to implement tomorrow.

Just load the brush with a good amount of soap and start building lather on your face. You might need to dip the tips in warm water from time to time to get the lather where you want it. Face lathering is a rewarding experience.

Yes they do, Sir !

It will cost you $15 or $20 extra to get the one-piece brush scuttle.

I received mine last month. It's great !

See link to my thread about it:
