A shaving bowl is one of the old-school implements required for a perfect wet shave experience. They're basically a receptacle for whipping up a shaving soap bar into a rich lather with a badger hair shaving brush before you apply it evenly to your face.

Whipping up lather from shaving soap using a good brush is the first step to any wet shave. Shaving bowls are made with large enough diameters so you have enough room for the bar of soap and the brush to lather it up. It's important to think of the size of your shaving brush when choosing your shaving bowl.
Real shaving connoisseurs swear by traditional shaving mugs. They're relatively large ceramic bowls that have a solid handle to work with.
Start by thoroughly soaking your shaving brush bristles in lukewarm water. Next, use circular motions to whip up your shaving soap into a nice lather. Finally, apply the lather to your face. By using only quality shaving soaps, you'll soon find how much lather you need to produce for a nice, close shave.
