    Well, to complicate matters for me, I just watched a video of a guy using the SWK XL scuttle on a pedestal sink very similar to mine.
    He had no problems and handled it rather easily.

    Hmmm....methinks it's time to reanalyze this situation and get in under the wire, especially if they are going on hiatus for an extended amount of time.

    I did send an email to see what's available.

    Check for seconds/mistakes. A touch of color in the wrong spot can save ya a handful of cash sometimes.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    I did ask about seconds and about different or discontinued colors.
    I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

    The ridges are more aggressive than they look
    I love the way the sides taper in and down. This virtually eliminates banging the brush while whipping up the lather.

    I used Castle Forbes soap and got boatloads of lather, way more than usual.

    I have to say that this bowl works better than anything that I have ever used.

    Got a 4 incher on the way. 9 bucks shipped is not too bad.
    I can see this working and being simpler and easier than the scuttle.
    Set it in an inch of hot water in the bottom of the sink. Palm-sized....

    I have a Pantarei ceramic bowl and love it .
    I use it daily , they are pricey but can be personalized (even the painting) , in my opinion , a nice item for a shaver.

    I went and got a onion soup bowl from TJ Maxx $3.50, and just love it.

    For what it’s worth: some dude here sold me his scuttle that he got at SRD. I mean it’s ok. Looks fine too. But it’s a pain. It takes as much hot water to heat it, as it does to maintain the heat. I have to fill it, and the area where I mix with hot water to get the clay warm, then dump it all only to refill the warming cavity.

    One day i’ll Get rid of it in a give-away. It’s useless to me short of having hours to set up.

    As it stands, I have a stainless bowl that I lather in that I float in some hot water sitting in my sink. Works great! Takes no time to heat at all - there’s no set up time at all.

    That bowl might not be as sexy looking, but it works miles better than the scuttle. As a matter a fact, the scuttle is the only thing I’ve ever bought for wet shaving where I figured I got robbed via its uselessness.

    Love the idea of a stainless bowl floating in hot water. I bet that does work great for warm lather! Now if the bowl was dimpled or something too. Id have to try and find one. Sounds like a big winner to me.

    You insisted on buying that scuttle, mr. earcutter! I told you it sucked! Next time I guess you will trust that I do not exaggerate.
