Being the only Topic on the Forum that's yet to see any love, I thought I would start things off...

Despite predominately face lathering (now) I have accumulated a few scuttles. Although they rarely see much lather they are still an aesthetically pleasing addition to my shaving nook.

[attachment=2]

In terms of visual appeal the Georgetown is my favourite,

but when considering function, it's the Dirtybird I favour.

[attachment=0]

I am YET to acquire any vintage scuttles, but I certainly have spent some time on the net debating whether or not to click the "buy now" key!

Anyone else out there similarly afflicted with Scuttle Acquisition Disorder?

My current "scuttle" is a clay bowl that my son made in art class coupled with an oversized cappuccino mug that I "appropriated" from my wife. I fill the clay bowl with hot water and float the mug inside it. It works wonderfully but I've been eyeballing the scuttles from Georgetown Pottery and Dirty Bird Pottery for a while.

Hi Ben74,

Nice scuttles!

For a time I used scuttles or mugs adopted from my kitchen tools, not scuttles in fact:

Then I found this one and I found it really confortable (a big cup of metal from breakfeast):

For a while this made with porcelaine, with a fish style XD

And finally a Muhle scuttle:

Bye!

A scuttle may be on the "to get" list soon. I can't seem to make up my mind whether or not I'm a face latherer. Guess I gotta figure that out first.

Regardless, I *love* the color blue and really enjoy seeing the pics of beautiful blue scuttles. Keep `em coming.

I am waiting for a travel scuttle from Julie at Dirtybird. Maybe another week or two. The G5 from GT is really beautiful.

Hi VerbaVolant

Of course, this lather was made with "La Toja" the basic cream of La Toja (red tube).
In fact with this brand it's really easy to get a good lather, but actually It`s not my favorite because it`s a bit dry after shaving.

Regards
bn

I admit to having this disorder too. I have a large Becker with lid and matching brush/razor holder, a large Moss, and a Georgetown G4, pictured here with a favorite fossil. I rotate them depending upon the size of the brush I'm using. I'm still looking for a Dirty Bird.

Thanks guys. When I thought I had everything under control, this thread pops up. io

I do have "one" Dirty Bird 1.5 that I truly love to use. How am I going to explain this to my wife. T;

This is the Dirty Texan variant of the standard size Dirty Bird.

I'd love to see that! How small did you order it? Is it proportional to a Wee Scot?

My problem is that I don't have a convenient place to keep my scuttle so if I have to go digging for it in the morning, I usually don't bother.

I swear I thought I already responded to this thread.

Anyway, I like scuttles so much, I talked my wife into making me one!
