Hey guys,

I was in the dollar store today and saw some cheap French onion soup bowls, very similar to this one here:
Only it was $1.25.

Just used it a few minutes ago and it worked great. The handle made holding onto it while I worked up the lather really easy and it was heavy enough that it din't move around on the counter when I needed to dip up some more.

I pretty much swear by the local Goodwill thrift shop for all my shave related accoutremonts at this point. Last time I was there (getting a mug sized for the newly acquired Mitchell's Wool Fat puck Sisi1) they had soup bowls like these and one of those over-sized cappuccino mug/ bowl things. I saw an old Melmac bowl from the 50s there too and thought "Ooo...un-breakable"! Laughing1

I think I actually like the handles on these French onion style soup bowls better than the shave dedicated/branded "apothecary" mugs. Fat & round I like much better than that wee nub! Tongue

I like the looks of that and I'll keep that style in mind. I have French onion soup bowls I actually use for soup but don't think I'll ask them to do double duty.

I just bought an aluminum bowl with a rolled edge (unbreakable of course) for less than $10 on ebay that does the trick.
