Can anyone recommend a favourite scuttle mug to use.  I have a regular mug now, and, would prefer warmer lather, I think.  Or, at least a taller mug, to go with my new, longer brush.  

Any recommendations would be helpful.  

Thank you, in advance.

Well I just so happen to be the experienced user of many a scuttle talked about on this forum and I would like to chime in. I started with the moss small scuttle 10 years ago, then sold it for a large moss scuttle so I could lather in it. Then I saw the dirty bird brush scuttle. Sold the large moss and bought it. Then I saw the g20 from Georgetown pottery and thought here is my answer. It's now present day and I have sold all of them because I have yet to find a warm brush I liked as much as the small moss scuttle. So because I cannot lather really in it, I just bought a lather bowl from Doug brown pottery to lather in and now am waiting for my original scuttle to be delivered. Lesson I learned. You can either have a Luke warm lather in a big scuttle or have a pretty warm brush (which is where most of the lather should be) in a small bowl scuttle just big enough for the brush. Hope this helps if not its entertaining.

Please look at the folks on Etsy.  They tend to be smaller but make very nice pottery.  I have a Doug Smith which I enjoy.

I have a Mega Scuttle from Steve Woodhead ceramics and it's fantastic if you like a big bow for lathering. Not that often I warm lather but I always use to bowl lather with

I had a georgetown pottery G20. It broke not even two weeks of having it. Filled it with boiling water and put in on the counter. Then it cracked.

I think a Scuttle is a really nice thing to have in the colder months. I even use mine as a lather Bowl, not filled with water, during the summer. I have read that some people fill it with cold water during the summer and have cold leather which might be nice. I have the Georgetown Pottery G20. I would recommend it. I like the fact that it has a stopper and it is also big. Volume is your friend when it comes to warm water and keeping your leather warm. Also, to comment on the post above, I don't recommend filling your Scuttle with boiling water. Very hot water from the tap is plenty sufficient for a nice warm shave.

I have only one my son gifted me, it's a SWK from Germany, it is large but I honestly don't mind and I use it everyday.

I just picked up a new brush scuttle for my birthday.  I face lather and wanted something small to keep my brush warm between passes now that cold weather is setting in.

I use the dirty bird brush scuttle top part in a green Marvey mug. The Marvey mug holds heat very well and is hard rubber. No clanking around and sits somewhat safer on the shower shelf while I'm using it.

I really only use it to soak mostly before lathering. The odd time that I dump the top and then put my lathered brush into the cone it really does warm up nicely between passes. 

I pretty much only face lather. Having the brush scuttle has been a big step up in my routine. Soaks nicely without having to worry about the handle slipping under water that sometimes happened to me with the old espresso mug I had been using before.
