Dudes. a beauty and whips if a DFL (Darn Fine Lather). A Wonderful little, palm-sized Suribachi - this is basically a Japanese cooking mortar commonly used with a wooden pestle to grind up soft stuff like sesame seeds. The ridges in the bowl are quite soft and will not damage your brushes. I use a Suribachi exclusively now when I am shaving at home. $14.99 all in i.e. shipping included - ships world-wide.
