I would like to post my experience with purchasing a scuttle made by Robert Becker. First, the purchase itself was simple and flawless. Google Robert Becker Feats of Clay. Second, the price was well below what other scuttle manufacturers charge. Third, the quality. This scuttle is so beautiful I almost hesitate using it. Priceless quality. Now to functionaly. I purchased the large scuttle with brush holder, #009. Robert offers a wide variety of color combinations. This scuttle has a *huge* lathering bowl. My lather stays warm for three passes no problem. If you are looking for a scuttle I highly reccomend checking out Robert Becker.
