    Since B & B has its own Shaving Products, I beleive what is missing is a B & B Shaving Mug. Maybe with enough interest, a vendor(s) will release a limited edition version bearing the B & B logo.

    The mug could be around the same size as a Old Spice shave mug (at least 2¼inch high x at least 3¼inch diameter...which would fit most pucks), with B & B's badger image on both sides and a B & B badger image plastic cover (that would come in either blue, white, black or red color).

    All in favor say Aye!!!

    Christopher, perhaps you could do the leg work on this and help source something- we would need to know the minimum order amount and costs including shipping to someone, who then would distribute them and the reshipping costs including packaging to get them to the members. We would also need to see the demand.

    Jason:
    Thanx for the links and for sharing, but these mugs are for coffee and too deep (they look at least 4in high), as a shaving mug. The ideal shaving mug would be smaller...at least 2 ¼ high x at least 3 ¼ diameter...which would fit most pucks.

    Jim:
    I was thinking that by having a poll...the interest could possibly translate into a demand factor.

    I think the Zazzle store pretty much was under the radar here. I did try to promote coffee mugs from there a couple of times here recently. I think that if something is put in front of the membership on a regular basis it should do OK. .

    If it is functional and works good, then I'm in.

    Yea they Zazzle thing. When I first heard I freaked out all excited and frantically clicked the link cause I was totally gonna buy one.....

    Oh. It's for coffee.

    Ooh ooh! They have a Tshirt??? Thats pretty cool! How about that.....

    Oh. I can't afford that for a Tshirt.

    So, if an actual B&B branded shaving mug were to come along and wasn't a ridiculous price, I'd buy one for sure.

    I tried a MMOC once. I've sinced switched to straight razor shaving because it was less dangerous.

    I'm currently using a coffee mug...hahaha....so I'd be in for a shaving mug as long as it's reasonable. I almost nabbed one of the EJ Apothecary Bowls today. Something like that or a ceramic shaving mug around $25-$35 would be nice.
