Love it. I don't fill it with hot water. I bought it because I needed a larger size shaving mug.
I really like the scuttle included in this kit. It lathers well, and the thin aluminum body really transfers heat well. I like my soap hot, and this scuttle keeps it hot. Note: If you're hot water heater is set high, be careful as your scuttle may be too hot to handle. I'm interested to try it in the middle of the summer when a cool soap would be pleasing. 5 stars.
I've never used a shavette before, so this was new to me. I quickly found a few issues with my technique, since you have to be very careful with the blade angle when using a shavette. This is no fault of the razor. It shaves nicely, has a good weight, and is very well made. Not sure if this is a custom creation or a OEM rebrand, but, either way, nice job Naked Armor! 5 stars.
I've always enjoyed the Naked Armor soaps. They smell great, lather well, and provide a nice cushion for shaving. 5 stars.
The only thing I didn't like about the kit was the brush. I've used Naked Armor brushed before and they tend to shed. This one was no different. Now, maybe I'm a little bit picky. I spent over $40 to buy a custom synthetic brush, so I'm very particular. The brush in this kit just feels a little rough. It will probably loosen up with use, but I'm very particular with the feel, so I've been using my own brush with this kit. 4.5 stars.
So, overall, a very nice product! I'm not going to subtract a star just because I have a different brush preference. Keep it up Naked Armor, you have a winner here.
The mug does what it claims. Just fill it with hot water and that is it. It will keep your shaving cream warm. I love the finish and how elegantly the mug is packed. Definitely an excellent gift idea for a man. I would definitely recommend it.
I switched from an electric shaver (Braun) to wet shaving a couple of months ago. Shaving with warm lather has changed shaving from something I just did for work to something I actually find pleasure in doing now.
The Scuttle Shaving Bowl has been marvelous. I use a small amount of cream ( I only use a fingertip amount) and I've been able to work up enough lather in this bowl for two passes. The bowl has succeeded in keeping the lather warm the entire time.
I have totally recommended this bowl to my friends, via social media, who had also expressed an interest in wet shaving.
Great shape for foaming. It's heavy and seems to hold warmth well enough. I will have to revisit after I have used this a number of times, but upon a couple uses seems to be what I was looking for.
