Only just got into "old school" shaving and I have so many questions at the moment! Here we go: -At the moment I have some Crabtree and Evelyn Sienna in a wood bowl and just build up a later in the bowl. How is a bowl better than this? - I can see two benefits of using a large bowl: less lather wastage and you can fit any brand of soap into the bowl (i.e. a C+E bowl will only take C+E soap). So, why is a purpose made shave bowl better than, say, a large mug or mortar with the pestle removed? - Any other benefits vs not using a bowl? I've searched TSD and can't find anything that explanes why you'd want to use one in the first place. I'm interested because I want to get the best possible shave.
