The Georgetown G5 Shaving Scuttle for Classic Wet Shaving
Georgetown Pottery offers up the G5 shaving scuttle for you wet shaving warm lather enjoyment.
The G5 Shaving Scuttle has what they call a ‘comfort handle’ that sits low to allow you to insert your thumb through the handle and hold the scuttle from the bottom, as well as a broad spout to simplify filling the warm water reservoir. It’s offered in a handsome variety of color combinations (and they also will do personalized colors upon request). The scuttles are hand made and finished in Maine, USA.
Georgetown G5 Shaving Scuttle Dimensions
The Georgetown G5 Scuttle measures 5 1/2″ wide by 3″ tall, with the lathering/inside bowl being about 4 3/4″ across and about 2 1/2″ deep.
The reservoir holds about 6 oz of warm water.
New Features in the G5 Shaving Scuttle
The 5 in G5 comes from this being their 5th revision of their shaving scuttle design. Some of the new improvements are said to include both horizontal and vertical grooves to help with lather production, a larger water reservoir (to help hold the temperature longer), and a larger, circular fill hole, with a rubber stopper included to help maintain temperature longer and to prevent water from the reservoir from splashing into the lathering bowl if you’re getting a little aggressive with your favorite shaving brush! They’ve also incorporate a lip around the inside of the lathering bowl/inner chamber to help keep the lather from climbing up over the lip of the shaving scuttle.
The ideas for these improvements came from feedback from the wet shaving community. You’ve got to love it when companies take feedback and incorporate to create better products for their customers. Kudos to Georgetown on a fine shaving scuttle!
