I have seen that lather bowl. It is quite handsome. I bowl lather on the rare occasions when using cream from a tube. For that, I have the Sara Bonnyman lather bowl with ridges that matches my Moss Scuttle. The Sori Yanagi bowl you mention, however, has sparked my curiosity. This bowl has no ridges. I am curious to know what you think of it as a lather bowl.
The lack of ridges or smooth, untextured presentation is highly aesthetically pleasing and in no way at the expense performance. I find this vessel produces high quality lather with ease. I predicted the lack of ridges might be the bowl's downfall, but I very pleased to report that my hypothesis was disproved...

It is as you say Ben, far too small for use........ I think it costs work out at around £48/£52 silly money !!!. I think due too it being double walled.
In regards to the use of stainless Steel their is no less than 150 different types. Either 200 or 300 series within Austenite & Ferritic if it states Martensitic not so good corrosion wise.
Then you go for Duplex Stainless Steels either 2304 0r 2205 and I think in most if not all food & cooking utensils they use 2205 as [sic] does not leache out causing the lather too go flat.

I received mine today and with my ruler I measure this quite different...Width at top...5 inches. Depth...2 inches and Bottom...2 inches...perfect size for holding and not as large as you first reported .Unless you have a different bowl you said top was 230mm (which is 9 inches) and bottom 160mm (which is 6 inches)depth is about the same approx 2 inches (48mm)...maybe you use a different ruler down under or there are two different bowls...I got mine on line from Aesop US for $25.00 plus shipping.At any rate a wonderful bowl and a true bargain compared to my PILS bowl...absolutely the perfect size and looks fantastic in satin stainless...even came with some after shave samples and shaving cream.

In all honesty I think it is the best shaving bowl ever made...great price and very cool looking..can even use it like a scuttle...will never break and easy to clean...wish I had seen this before I spent a few hundred dollars on pottery bowls and mugs which I hardly ever use any more...this is all you will ever need!!!!
