If easy to do, would you mind posting link to this bowl - just want to make sure I am looking at the correct one.

Not sure about the DFS rules on posting links to unaffiliated sites. 

If the link above gets deleted by the administrator you can search "sori yanagi bowl 13cm" on the online marketing site named after a river in South America the bowls will come up in sets.  If you do the same search on the popular online auction site they come up as individual pieces.

As single bowls they are kind of pricey and typically ship from Japan so they take a while to get.  If you are in need of a set of stainless steel kitchen bowls the nesting set of five different sizes is a better value and will likely be the best set of kitchen bowls you will ever buy.

Got it. The lack of ridges - was that an issue at all in terms of the lather-generation? Thanks

Not at all.  In fact i actually find it easier as compared to the ceramic Captains Choice as I do not load on the soap but instead scoop and smear on the bottom of the bowl. 

With the Captains Choice i used to end up with a lot of soap caught in the ridges instead of loaded in the brush unless I mashed the brush a lot more than I wanted to. 

This may be a technique issue as for years I only used T&H creams and lathered on the polished ceramic surface on the inside of the sink basin.

See below using Sebem Gold with a dense badger brush -- about as tough a combination to lather as they come

Impressive! Thanks for the pics. Looks great. And as you mention - soap does not get stuck in the grooves!

I use the Aesop stainless bowl. Looks like the same bowl above. Description says “The stainless steel bowl designed by Sori Yanagi”

It is a different shape than many others and works very well. Comfortable to hold. Wide rim provides plenty of room for lather with no spillage.

$25 shipped from Aesop. I’ve also seen pet food bowls that are pretty close.

I have a timless bowl and I think it is great when I bowl leather. Big enough for me
