Crabtree & Evelyn Sweet Almond Oil shave soap in their bestoke Mason's pottery.
This was a marvelous shave. The soap is best when you take time, little water, lots of loading, lots of brush-work on the face. Amazing comfortable shave. [Image: 5ffdef2e78d491bc63e10d61c4644168.jpg]

Beautiful scuttle. Do you keep the puck in the scuttle? Do you use the scuttle to warm the lather?

Hey Gabe! Thank you for your kind words.

I do keep the puck in the scuttle. On the shelf, I put a plastic cap (originally from another jar) over the soap to keep the dust away. It fits perfectly.

Before I start to lather, I run hot water for a few seconds over the soap to loosen the surface a little (even though I do not typically bloom any other soaps)... I immediately dump the water, I don't let the soap and water sit together.

I have another one of these scuttles that is holding a small "Gentlemen & Officers" Trumper soap (vintage formula).

Thanks Matt. I have one of those Trumpers scuttles. It works ok but I don't leave a puck in it. Just wondering if the soap covers the holes and stops the lather from warming up.

It's been a while since I've used a boar. Here is a Semogue 2000 lathered with some Eva Nesterova Bergamot & Orange.

I could certainly be wrong, I always thought that the holes are meant just to let the water go downward when you put water on top of the soap... and that the bottom reservoir is really just to soak the brush.
Have you tried?

Yes. I warm soak brush in warm tap water. I then load the brush. I warm water in an electric kettle. I dump out the tap water and fill with the hot water from the kettle. I place the brush on top and it warms the brush. The water is hot enough so that steam does rise through the holes. I would think a modern artisan type scuttle would work better, but I have not tried one. My only other scuttle is a Japanese Seto-Marujyu mug.
