  • We have commissioned a potter to create these beautiful custom shaving bowls. Each bowl is hand thrown on a potters wheel to our specifications. The top diameter is approximately 4.25" and the height is approximately 1.25", perfect for whipping up a luxurious lather. The bowls are finished in a smooth, waterproof glaze. The bottom surface of the bowls is unfinished. Each bowl is unique and may vary in dimensions and finish slightly.

    According to the potter, these bowls are food, microwave and dishwasher safe. However, the color of the glaze can be affected.

New shaving bowl

My new shaving bowl from WCS is beautiful, good weight (not too heavy not too light) and whips up a very nice lather. I am quite pleased

Ok bowl

This bowl is well made. The ridges on the bottom really do a great job of getting a good lather. The only issue is that the walls of the bowl slope inward rather than flare outward. The bowl is more narrow at it's opening than at it's base. There is a lot of clinking noises while lathering your brush and most of the soap gets pushed against the walls of the bowl. These aren't major issues. But that's why this isn't a great bowl.

Reconsideration after weeks of use.

My initial review of this bowl gave it 4 stars. My concern was its grip-ability given my hand size, which is pretty average. After several weeks of daily experience with no mishaps or even coming close to one, I withdraw that criticism. With repeated use, I've come to appreciate an initially over looked subtlety in its design. The rim provides an overhanging lip inside the bowl which helps keep lather inside along the gently curved sides. The raised bumps on the bottom perform terrifically, especially with a high-quality soap like that produced by Declaration Grooming. I'm achieving superior results with all the lather I need for three passes with 30 seconds of mixing and whipping in this bowl. My apologies for under-rating this product. At this price, you can't go wrong! It's certainly worth you giving it a try.

Walls too tall

It's ok. The walls were a little too tall for one of WCS's shaving brush which constantly hits the side when lathering.
