Recently I moved my family into a much BIGGER house with significantly more room for the kids to play, however it came at one major expense - less room in the bathroom for my shaving requirements.

I keep the majority of my collection in the study, but I like to have a few necessities on hand. So in the interests of saving space I discovered this little combination from supplies already in my collection...

   

It's an Old Spice mug for lathering with a stainless steel Truefitt & Hill soap bowl inside (currently filled with Mystic Waters Bay Rum). A simple pleasure, but I was thrilled!

That do look nice, and saves space too.

It would also be something for me to consider keeping in my locker at work, for those times I have to stay overnight. Maybe an idea for an artisan or vendor to offer such a combo?

The combo might even work as a poor man's scuttle.

Glad this was brought back up as I had not seen this when originally posted. I have the mug, now I will have to find a SS bowl to fit.

Ben,

Good idea. You have a shave mug, a shave bowl, and a scuttle to choose from for the next shave.
