  • Exceptionally crafted by Canadian ceramic artist Junichi Tanaka, this Artisanal Shaving Scuttle is the highly awaited follow-up to his original scuttle created exclusively for Fendrihan. Handmade by Tanaka with clay found in Alberta, each piece undergoes 6 days of shaping, using heating and cooling processes. Once taking shape, the outer hot water chamber, and soap whipping insert are fused together for the final product. A polished glaze and the potter’s signature are the last elements to be added to complete this remarkable shaving tool. A rare piece of art that is both beautiful and functional, each piece will be unique.

    A native of Japan, ceramic artist Mr. Junichi Tanaka established his wholesale business in 1998. Working out of his studio in Whonnock, British Columbia, his ceramic collection is found in artisanal shops throughout Canada. Fendrihan is proud to offer these rare commissioned pieces for our customers.

Beautiful piece of art!

So far this scuttle is amazing! Beautifully made and has so far worked great with the Mitchell’s wool fat soap.

Great but fragile for the high cost

Loved the scuttle, warm shaving cream is an experience you won't be able to live without! Dropped my toothpaste tube from... 6 inches above the scuttle and it perforated the scuttle. The inside is something like 1/16 of an inch! 125$ is a lot of money for something that fragile...

Very nice piece of work

This is the second one I've owned; I previously purchased the green one and was impressed with the workmanship and quality...then it was lost in a travelling mishap. I bought the blue one this time. The spout is considerably larger on the blue one than that of the green one; I don't know if that's the case with all of them. It is very well made, and has ample size for working up a lather. It also holds heat very well so your lather stays nice and warm for your shave. Overall well worth the money for a unique piece.

I like it.

This scuttle is fine. It’s a little bigger than I expected but that’s not a problem. If I had one thing I might add to this scuttle, it would be a rougher surface in the bowl area for creating a lather more easily. But the scuttle does add warmth to my shave. And of course, Fendrihan’s customer service is outstanding.
