Shaving with my Scuttle

Today I bring out my G20 Georgetown Pottery Scuttle. The G20 is the size and it's the biggest one they make 20oz. What made me think of using this was the feeling to have a hot shave with eucalyptus namely my Mr. Warlock shaving soap a favorite of so many. Some only use it for the holiday season others, well, they use it all year long.

The scuttle is a strange wet shaving tool. This one is big, bulky, and heavy. The way a scuttle works is pretty simple it works by transferring the heat from hot water added to the inside of the scuttles reservoir causing whatever is in its cup to be heated. You place your soap or cream inside the cup and start slowly building up to an amazing hot rich lather.

Making lather is not that hard in a scuttle but if you are used to a wide shaving bowl it just not going to happen with a scuttle, Most of them are smaller due to the nature of how a scuttle is made so lathering will be more like beating eggs in a small bowl it's differently doable.

When I applied the lather with my brush it truly was heaven with the hot eucalyptus scent filling the den and that refreshing feeling on my face it has to be one of the best shaving experiences.

Also in today's YouTube video, I talk about a few Netflix and other Movies I've seen such as The Menu, The Pale Blue Eye, Glass Onion, The Banshees of Inisherin, and White Noise

So that's all I have for this week
As always be kind to one another
