OK so I know all you vets will yawn....but...I had to post this. Check out the picture of my brand new Georgetown Pottery scuttle and the amazing lather I made in it. (For the record, I used Jack Black shave cream - I know some people diss it but I find it amazing). The later was so nice and warm and soothing that I actually was so busy enjoying it that I cut my neck shaving for the first time, just not focusing on my technique. Anyway - I am very pleased with the scuttle and how great a tool it is for lathering.
