Gentlemen,

I could not resist this Turkish copper shave bowl. Not that I need another shave bowl, but this one reminds me of something from a fairy tale — and I've always had a soft spot for fairy tales.

I'll probably not use it, Harvey, since these days I rarely use a shave bowl, unless it holds a puck of soap. I face lather most of the time, with bowl lathering — Schwarezweisskeramik scuttle — on the weekends. This one will go on the top shelf in the bookcase in my study where I keep my modest museum of shaving paraphernalia. I just could not resist it.
Stay well,
Obie

Gentlemen,
Thank you for the kind words. The Fairytale Shave Bowl is light in the hand and wide enough to give the brush ample room to swirl. It is thin but solidly made. The shave bowl is quite inexpensive, actually, and may be ordered from this vendor in Turkey:

After all, every gentleman shaver needs the Fairytale Shave Bowl.
Stay well,
Obie
