    ....the Victorians, although drab in their clothing, loved color in their household items ..........

    ....for a more 'manly' scuttle, Mason's Crabtree & Evelyn used to manufacture an off white mono-color scuttle, and another one with either a blue or brown hunting scene....

    ... but you have find those used on eBay now.
    ...they quit making them...........

    Go to Robert Becker and get a wonderful manly colored scuttle and accessories.

    alpla444 That's sweet!

    I do like that brush/razor holder (I couldnt really get one due to the weight in shipping) so i settled on just the brush holder to partner my scuttle

    Why limit yourself to one method? Sometimes I lather on top of a puck (usually cheap Williams or VDH), sometimes I load the brush and lather in a separate bowl, sometimes I will lather on the face, especially when using creams but not always. I mix it up some, just like I do my razor, blade, brush, aftershave etc.. This is what makes it so fun and not just a boring routine.

    Nice method you have...very reminiscent of the pampering a professional barber does before giving a shave.

    I may have missed it, but does anybody here have any experience with dirty dog scuttles? I'm eyeballing the 1.5

    I'm guessing you mean a Dirty Bird?

    We have a few members that have Dirty Bird scuttles.
