Broke my Moss Scuttle

Post by Rufus » Mon Jun 08, 2020 11:01 am

This morning I started my shave in a truly negative way: I broke my Classic Moss Scuttle. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) I’d had for nearly 13 years, being a 60th birthday gift from my son. I used the scuttle for every shave I’ve had, except when travelling, since I’ve had it. Needless to say, it’s a great loss practically and sentimentally, but I’ve now ordered an Anniversary Slate Moss Scuttle. I don’t like shaving without a scuttle so the new one will take care of the practicality side of my daily shaves, but not the sentimental side.

That's very sad. I use an Anniversary Slate scuttle and love it. It was my very first scuttle, won in a raffle/giveaway. I have tried many others, but the Moss has remained my favorite. I think you'll bond with it quickly.

I feel a bit silly, but I wonder what, or whose Anniversary is involved? It doesn't seem to say on Sally's website.

Smallflower sells these for $95, and under Sarah Bonnyman Moss Scuttle, there is an explanation that mentions the 5th anniversary slate Moss scuttle. Other than that, I know nothing more. I believe it is in stock.

I wondered as well, but because I bought it for the slate colour I didn’t call Sara to find out. Perhaps it celebrates the launch of the first Moss scuttle, which you designed and commissioned. :mrgreen:

There can only be one, and it looks like this:

Thanks for posting. Shaving history right there. Seriously, It belongs in a wet shaving museum; are you thinking of starting one in Tatamagouche?
