Johnny, what model and color did you purchase? I plan to order a Schwarzweisskeramik scuttle and am trying to decide what size to get. At this point I am leaning in the direction of either a small or basic scuttle along with some of his soap bowls. My impression is that the large and x-large scuttles are perhaps too large and heavy to use comfortably. I have had several email exchanges with Ansgar, and he has been extremely responsive and a pleasure to deal with. I too am looking forward to adding one of his masterpieces to my shave den.
