I am really excited to introduce these made in Winnipeg Scuttles from Lot 15.
I first learned about these scuttles while I was on a layover in Edmonton. I couldn't believe I had never seen these before. Even more important- why weren't they in my online store!
The ritual of wet shaving begins with a great lather. How do you make a great lather exceptional? You need a scuttle. Quite possibly the best invention ever made for wet-shaving. Did I mention that you need a scuttle!
Scuttles look like a combination of a tea pot and bowl. Simply add really hot water into the spout and the water warms the lather in the bowl above. Some scuttles come in 2 pieces which, in my opinion, increase the risk of breaking. The best scuttles are made in one piece. Both pieces are carefully crafted on the wheel and then fused together. The bowl has grooves carved into it to help build lather. The hot water below warms the bowl and the bowl warms the lather- giving you the most luxurious shave right in your own home.
Scuttles are hard to find. They are even harder to make. They are complex pieces requiring a skilled artist at the wheel. These scuttles are made in small batches right here in Winnipeg and are an amazing addition to your wet shaving ritual.
Bowl Depth approx 3.75 - 4 cm
Bowl Diameter approx 9 cm (tapers)
