Made from a hardwood called Acacia, this handmade wooden shaving soap dish is slightly larger than most.
We commissioned this bowl, it has been made to our exact specifications, the bowl is exclusive to The Executive Shaving Company. The larger dimensions will allow the user more space inside to lather up a hard shaving soap refill puck. The bowl can also be used as a lathering up bowl for soft shaving creams.
Each bowl was individually lathe turned and then polished by hand.
Acacia wood is known for its beautiful grain and its hardness making it absolutely the right wood for a shaving bowl.
We were offered oak and teak by the manufacturer but these are very slow growing trees, by contrast, Acacia grows very fast indeed.
An acacia falcate tree planted in Sabah, Malaysia is recorded as having grown 35 feet in just 13 months, averaging around an extra an inch per day in height. Such growth speeds reflect the fact that many of the Acacia species are growing in tropical climates that provide nutrition and rainfall throughout the year. This provides an almost perpetual growing season.
The bowl sits perfectly in the palm of your hand, the lid is embossed with The Executive Shaving Company logo.
*shaving soap not included*
Internal Diameter: 84mm reducing to 50mm
Total Diameter: 100mm
Internal depth: 35mm
Note: Due to the individual nature of these items, colour and sizes may vary very slightly from bowl to bowl.
Comes complete with a lid which is embossed with The Executive Shaving logo in black.
If your shaving soap puck refill is too large for the bowl (unlikely) trim to size with a kitchen knife.
Any smaller than standard size puck will within a few uses mould itself to the shape of the bowl.
If you use shaving cream, plop a wee dollop into the bowl and whip up a rich creamy lather in the bowl, paint this lather onto your skin.
Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
After use, wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Exceptionally well made and durable enough to last decades.
Acacia Wood is sustainable, it is also very hard wearing and beautiful to the eye.
100% real Acacia Wood.
