I'd like to buy one of these shaving scuttles, the kind with a water reservoir underneath the inner bowl. Large/small, model, color, and age don't matter, but excellent or better condition required. I'm only interested in these two brands; I already have a Moss and a Becker. Thanks.

A Georgetown scuttle is on the way. (Thanks, divotmax - Bob) I'm still interested in buying a Dirty Bird.

I just got a DB last week, John, and it is different from the Becker; some differences may be because of my choice of scuttle style.

First, it is smaller like a large coffee mug vis-a-vis a teapot, heats up quickly in the micro, and a simple design. The lather bowl is narrow and deep; it keeps the lather very warm but tends to encourage banging the sides with your brush handle unless the lather is made higher up on the side. Also, without a handle, you need a napkin to move it from the micro to the bath area; at least, that is part of my process in the mornings. They are well made, attractive, and functional.

It sounds like you got a brush scuttle rather than the larger bowl scuttle with a handle. I'm actually looking for the latter.

BUMP. I'm still looking for a used but good condition Dirty Bird scuttle.

3/7/12 Edit: One is on the way to me. Thanks, Ed (LookingGlass) and SMF.
