Brush Scuttle

Postby RiverValleyTrading » Tue Feb 02, 2016 11:13 am

Many of us who use bowls / soup mugs to soak our brush will know that brush never stays completely upright. Most of the time it falls sideways and only half the brush gets covered with water. The answer is a Brush Scuttle.

A brush scuttle is thinner and deeper. It's not meant for lathering. You soak your brush in the lower part , then you put in the top part when you shave. This allows to you to keep your lather filled brush warm as you shave. It gives those who prefer to face lather an opportunity experience the luxury of warm lather (that scuttle users prefer) :)

I can do with one, thought about getting something similar, but never got around looking for something like that..

As I exclusively face lather, I use one of these to soak my brush whilst showering....

I use a soup mug.

Only recently tried leaving it in the basin with hot water to keep the lather warm. Wow. Warm lather feels nice!

Been keeping my eye on second hand stores for something quirky though. Want to try DIY a scuttle.

Gonna make a diy stand soon. Will post pics. :)

I also face lather and never could figure out bowl lathering - but the brush scuttle looks interesting. I old the brush under hot water and create a bowl with my hands, slight squeeze and off to the races...warm lather? what is that what you speak of? :lol:

Are you stocking those RVT?

Warm lather. It's like spreading happiness on your face. :o::: :drool:
  1. Fill le soup mug with hot water. Plonk brush in.
  2. Wet le soap
  3. Shower le body
  4. Empty le soup mug
  5. Quick hot water refill, then empty again
  6. Pour excess off soap into mug, place mug in hot water filled basin, whip it up
  7. Put on face. Smile (before applying sharp objects)

I'll give it a whirl, by the time I'm done with my three pass the lather on the brush is still warm 8-) Using a very efficient R41 and a sharp blade with my ever improving superfast technique , I've managed to finish my shave before the lather cools. The deliberate slow shave will benefit from a warmer than prostitutes heart lather. Fatboy, slim and straights pop to mind - they're my slow shavers. Even got the shovelhead down to a super quick shave - key is in sharp blade, aggressive razor and a rock solid technique

My lather is usually cold by the time I'm done whipping it up. Never mind applying it. Time for a different mug - maybe. But this works for now.

I'm overstating things - I'm used to the "heat" of my lather, I've always shaved at the same temperature :D

These days, having purely badger and synthetic brushes, I just soak the brush under a running warm water tap for 10-15 seconds or so, squeeze out the excess and start lathering.

Initially, I thought the idea of a scuttle (read: warm foam) seemed a bit OTT. I mean it's just foam, right? I don't think the temperature makes much difference to the quality of the shave itself. But it just feels nice, to me. Personal preference I guess.

As you say, it's personal preference.

Warm lather is great in the winter time. My scuttle doesn't get much use in the summer.

there must be a way to get the lather warm, without using a bain-marie type setup...
