The cup is made of thin metal but for myself personally this is a huge advantage. It allows me to sit the cup in a basin of hot water and keep your lather warm between passes.
The dimple effect on the copper metalwork assists in a creating great lather and i found the handle is big enough to hold the cup securely.
I personally like a big bowl to mix and i found this bowl to be wide enough to use a large shaving brush.
Highly recommended shaving cup.
