Whip Up a Better Lather
Marble is a superior retainer of heat, perfect for keeping your lather warm for up to three times longer than ceramic. Just add some Ultra Lather Shaving Cream to the bowl and whip up a lather with your shaving brush.
A BARBERSHOP SHAVE AT HOME
Marble has a thermal conductivity three times greater than ceramic, which means it holds a hot lather longer. Warm up your bowl by filling it with hot water and letting it soak for a minute or so while you prep for your shave.
Handsomely Hand Crafted
Subtle, pale gray markings intrinsic to the stone give depth and dimension. Crafted entirely by hand and polished to a lustrous finish.
Just received my new marble shaving bowl today. I had already shaved, but had to do a test lather. HOLY COW I LOVE THIS THING! I had lather everywhere plus I love the way it fits in the palm of my hand and how well it will fit into my travel bag! To those that say it isn't large enough, JUST HOW MUCH LATHER DO YOU NEED? Is your face the size of a pumpkin?? Great job folks, and thanks!
Supply's Marble Shaving Bowl is the first lathering bowl that I've used in wet shaving. White marble is beautiful material, and the bowl is simple and elegant design that make it a stylish element in the bathroom. And when compared to ceramic (common material in lathering bowls), marble is also more lasting as it doesn't brake as easily. But marble isn't good material for lathering bowl for these reasons alone, it keeps the heat well (better than steel) and therefore allows lather to stay warm. However, it should be noted that in order to keep the lather warm, it's not sufficient to just heat the bowl with hot water properly, it's of course equally important that the water used with shaving brush in lathering is hot as well. The size of bowl is also good in the sense that it fits to my hand well, but If I try to make lather too quickly and aggressively, the lather will most likely come over the bowl's rim. This doesn't happen normally if I'm not too forceful, but it makes me wish that the bowl was just a little bit larger. But if the size was bigger, it probably wouldn't fit to my hand as well as now. In conclusion, I'm happy with Supply's Marble Shaving Bowl and I would still buy it now that I've had some experience with it. I'm also glad that there isn't any unnecessary additional images or text in bowl.
The bowl is just the right size . Doesnt take up too much of your counter.also it is weighty with.ridges. It is easy to make a rich lather. It takes me a while to shave though so i dont really notice and heat retention. I like making my own lather so do not want a hot electric lather dispenser. I am surprised to have not yet found a shave bowl heated by a rechargeable battery. In the interim, this is a very nice bowl.
Bowl works much better than your hand.
I love this bowl ! It makes a nice leather and what I love the most is the fact that holds the heat much longer than ceramic bowels .
I bought two of them , just to make sure I have a reserve for the years to come !
