This 3D printed travel lather bowl has been a labour of love for a while. I wanted to create a lather bowl I could take with me and that could hold my razor and blades. I already have a great brush holder. The bowl itself takes up a bit of space so I thought it would be wise to put the razor and blades inside the bowl.
My first version of this functioned well but had a few challenges. Threading wasn’t as robust as I wanted it. The knurling wasn’t really consistent. The texture, while whipping up a great lather, made it difficult to clean out remaining soap. I went back to the drawing board. This new version is thicker all around. The lather pattern only goes in one direction to make cleaning a breeze. Threads have been thickened up. All give this bowl a little more structure and a bit more polish.
For the inserts, I’ve started working on patterns for different razors. I had to rework those a bit. The first one I completed was for a Rockwell 6c/6s to hold the razor and all the caps. Next up will be my Karve CB, the Gillette Tech Fat Handle, and a universal altoids insert. You will be able to purchase in the store, but, as with all my 3D printables, you can download and print your own. This one is still a work in progress so I plan to add more inserts once they have been modeled. I hope you enjoy:
