On those hot days, I leave the hot water in the scuttle to the last minute, and just before I start to make my lather, I pour the water out and just let the warmth of the clay keep the lather warm.

Makes for a very nice shave.


Johnny I would love to see a video one day of your routine from scuttle prep to actually making the lather in the scuttle. I don't currently own a scuttle, but have been looking into a Dirty Bird one. However, there are just so many options to chose from like everything else in the wet shaving world.

Johnny is a Schwarzweisskeramik ( black and white ) scuttle user. I think they are the best . Here is a link to a vid of the maker himself, Anskar , using his scuttle while shaving.

I've been thinking of getting one for some time now.

How about a Schwarzweisskeramik TSN LE with a special price? I haven't seen anything like it on other forums... Is it a bit too much? Rolleyes

That looks amazing. I tried to make a simple pot years ago in high school and it is not easy. I didn't even manage to make anything good enough to bring home. Impressive indeed.

Good to know how a scuttle is made! Well done for Dirty Bird Pottery.Badger

Thank you for a beautiful illustration of creativity par excellence.

I have a new appreciation of potters and their skills.

When I first star using scuttles was about 4 years ago. Since then. I will never g back to a mug, dish or something similar to that. In my case I use a moss scuttle from Sara Bonniman just awesome.

I know this is a rather old thread, but there's an answer to the apparent huge size. I don't know what the percentage is, but clay pottery shrinks significantly during its manufacture. I think that most of this shrinkage occurs during the first firing, before decorative glazes are applied.
