The Dirty Bird Shaving Scuttles

The Dirty Bird line of Shaving Scuttles for Classic Wet Shaving

Dirty Bird has a full line of shaving products, including a few different variations in Shaving Scuttles.

The original style Dirty Bird Shaving Scuttle

Dirty Bird Original Scuttle with Sprial Lathering Ridge – for classic wet shaving

The original style of Dirty Bird Scuttle is about 5″ wide and about 3 1/2″ tall.  The lathering bowl/inner chamber is about 3 1/2″ across and about 2″ deep.
It features a large handle to aid in gripping the scuttle.  The handle is also grooved so you can rest your brush on it (though I prefer to keep mine in the lathering bowl to help keep it warmer).
It has what they call a ‘no creep rim’ to help keep your lather down in the bowl where you want it, rather than climbing up and over the sides of your shaving scuttle.
It holds about 16 oz of water in the reservoir, helping to keep the lathering bowl nice and warm for a long time.

It has two options in ‘lather ridges’, the original spiral style, or the newer ‘web’ style (with both a spiral groove and vertical grooves).

The 1.5 style Dirty Bird Shaving Scuttle

The 1.5 style Shaving Scuttle from Dirty Bird is basically the original scuttles ‘big brother’.
The outside dimensions are about 6″ wide and about 3 3/4″ tall, with a lathering bowl measuring about 4 1/2″ across and about 2″ deep.
It holds about 30 oz of water (making for a much larger heat reservoir), and is otherwise pretty much similar to the original model shaving scuttle (including the two lathering ridge styles in the lathering bowl).

The Dirty Bird Brush Scuttle

For you face-latherers who still crave a warm shaving brush, Dirty Bird has your answer.
Their Brush Scuttle is made to keep your brush warm between latherings in your 3 pass shaving process.
It uses the two chamber design, but is sized for just your brush.  It is also built to nest on top of their lathering bowl.
