A good bowl overall though it could be a little deeper to accommodate for the new soap bars. When I have a new soap in there the lid doesn't fit on.
Parker Safety Razor's Shaving Soap Bowl is hand made from genuine mango wood. Mango wood is a renewable resource -- it comes from the same tree that bears the popular fruit. Mango Wood can take a beating and retain it's beauty. After using, simply leave the lid off to allow the soap to dry and then replace the lid as needed.
