I'm not especially a newbie to wet shaving, but this forum is opening my eyes to how to get a good shave out of the process. For years I've been using an old Gillette open comb and a ratty old brush I got from my dad a mort of years ago. But I'm learning that it can be lots better than I've been getting if you lather properly. The advice I've gotten on this alone is worth the price of admission. My shaves have improved immeasurably.
Now -- a question. One of the best bits of lathering arcana I've gotten is using a lather bowl to work up a good lather. I've only been working on this for a week or so, using an old bowl from the back of the kitchen cupboard. In the photo series on lathering, I've seen some nice looking shallow bowls. They look like they would be much easier to manipulate the brush in than the deep one I'm using.
Does anyone have suggestions on where to find a nice shallow lathering bowl?
