Choosing the Best Shaving Bowl
Shaving bowls are as much as a decorative piece as they are a shaving accessory. First and foremost you want it to work well in helping you get a quick, thick lather.
To do this, you want something wide enough so that you can work the shaving brush easily. Usually, something with a diameter of around 5 inches does the trick. Half an inch less or more works well.
The other thing is depth. You want it to be tall enough to keep the lather as it builds. Something in the vicinity of 2 inches, a little taller or a little shorter works well.
Regarding style, some people prefer using a shaving mug while others the bowl. This boils down to what you prefer. Our top shave bowl reviews below offers a nice mix of the different options around with some made from stainless steel, others wood and also porcelain.
