Since I've been having trouble recently with a bathroom sink drain stopper that allows leakage, I decided to get a double-walled stainless steel bowl to put in the sink for hot water to rinse my razor between passes. I found a 2-quart BonJour bowl for a good price, so I'll give it a try.

Thanks, Gary. I think it's perfect for the gentleman who has no plumbing skills whatsoever.

Nice bowl John and the double wall should retain heat well. I like your theory of alternative use here.

Some time ago I have at home this stuff, but had not put the pictures.

A gift from across the pond

A gift from a friend, a vintage brush from the GDR. Aluminum.

Friday the 13th was lucky for me. Thanks to the generosity of a good friend, I picked up 3 more Rooney Finests, a 1/1, a 1/2 Ebony, and a 3/1 Ebony.
