From Fine:

Building a proper shaving lather on your face, with a brush and a traditional shaving soap or cream, is a great first step to improving your shave. However, if you want the most luxurious lather your soap or cream can possibly produce, you simply must have a lather bowl. The Fine Lather Bowl has been thoughtfully designed, from the ground up, just for this purpose.

 

When evaluating a bowl as a potential vessel in which to build a shaving lather, there are several criteria to consider, including:

 

  • Storage – your vanity real estate is limited and valuable. The Fine Lather Bowl is the first to support wall mounting with integrated StaticHole® Technology. The bowl works perfectly with 3M Command Medium Wire Hooks which are available almost everywhere, hold up to three pounds, and do not damage wall surfaces.

  • Grip – Working with a presumably delicate item, in wet and soapy conditions, over a hard surface, and doing so on a daily basis, requires a tool that’s easy to hold on to. The handle on the Fine Lather Bowl is just right for slipping your thumb thru while it is held in the palm of your hand.

  • Texture – When making a lather, a degree of texture to your bowl aids in more quickly aerating your soap or cream. The Fine Lather bowl features low profile ribs for just this purpose.

  • Color – As you get to know the lathering properties of a particular soap or cream, you’ll appreciate the color contrast between a dark bowl surface and your pure white lather to best evaluate the existing state of said properties. All Fine Lather Bowls sport a dark colored inner bowl.

  • Brush Handling – Traditional wet shaving generally requires multiple shaving passes – which results in the need for multiple lathers as well. Between these lathers your brush needs a home. The brush holder integrated into the handle of the Fine Lather Bowl provides the perfect place to set your brush, while keeping it from sliding into the slippery lather itself.

  • Style – Lather bowls are a bulky piece of equipment when compared to other toiletries, and as such, most bathrooms are not well equipped to conveniently store such an item. Thus the bowl becomes part of your bathroom decor. Fine Lather Bowls sport two-tone, hand-dipped colored glazes for a clean and distinct look.

The Fine Lather Bowl is best used with a brush that has been pre-loaded with soap or with an almond sized dollop of cream. It is not intended to replace a shaving mug for soap storage and brush loading, but to complement it.

    It should be mentioned that this is definitely a bowl and not a mug. The last bullet point in the description is spot on. This thing will take up a bit of counter space (although you could hang it through the whole punch in the handle). But that’s also the biggest reason why it works so well.

    Being a bowl and not a mug, this lather bowl is lower and wider than what people who shave with a mug would be used to. The lower sidewalls and larger surface area mean you aren’t bashing your brush handle into them, waking up everyone up in the house at 6am (for which, my girlfriend is eternally grateful).

    Ergonomically, the bowl is great. Being able to slip your thumb through the handle while you palm the bottom of it while you lather gives you that extra sense of security that you’re not going to drop it, even if your hands are wet. The ridges inside it help add a bit of texture, allowing you to whip up a lather more quickly and easily.

    I can definitely recommend this bowl, and would buy it again if I ever drop this one.

    Fantastic bowl that lathers up super quick. Feels good in the hand and looks great on the shelf.
