I used the Wee Scot over the weekend. I started with the Wee Scot and a Speick shave stick. Face lathering doesn't get much easier or better than this. I used shaving cream almost exclusively until picking up the Wee Scot early last year. I also picked up a Speick shaving stick and planned to use the pair whenever I traveled. The Wee Scot and Speick resulted in a total paradigm shift for me. The resulting lather was not only more dense than my usual cream, but slicker as well. I have eight tubs and tubes of shave cream in the cupboard and they are rarely used any more. Where I used to whip up a bowl of lather in my Robert Becker scuttle, I now face lather using an assortment of shave soaps. I find myself using the Wee Scot even when staying at home. I tend to use the little fellow when using one of my shave sticks and typically go with my Simpson Eagle G3 in Best or a SOC boar when face lathering off of a puck. I'll occasionally switch things up by using the Wee Scot with MWF or AoS or the Eagle with Arko. Sunday, I brought out a tub of TOBS lavender and set to work with the Wee Scot in the scuttle. I was surprised at the job the little brush did. I had plenty of lather for three passes and used far less cream than I ever did with one of my larger brushes. The only down side to this brush is how little product is actually required. Almost none is wasted. You will rarely have a good excuse to buy more soap or cream if you use it regularly.
