The Lather Bowl

Generating a thick and luxurious lather can be tricky for those new to using a brush and traditional soaps and creams. The key to the process is using quality products, patience and adding water to the mix a few drops at a time.

Since we switched manufacturing processes to precision metal injection, t … read more

Most shave soap tins will dent if you look at them funny or give them the hairy eyeball. Heaven help you if you bang your razor on it or gasp...drop it. The consequences can be even worse if you have a ceramic bowl rather than a tin...sharp shards of ceramic are not a pleasant thing to have in the bathroom. You can always go with a wooden bowl but, wood and water do not make for a great long-term relationship. Plastic? Fugly! And don't forget the whales and sea turtles. The Asylum Bowl is d … read more
