  • 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.

Junichi Tanaka Fen-Tnk-Blue shaving scuttle

I just received my blue Junichi Tanaka shaving scuttle yesterday. As usual, packing was superb and shipping from Florida to Oregon was faster than expected. This is my 2nd Junichi...I also have the smoky celadon version which I purchased 2-1/2 years ago. Please see my review of the smoky celadon scuttle which I posted today. Everything I wrote about the superb smoky version applies here as well. There are 2 minor differences between the smoky and blue versions...The measured capacity of my blue version is 13 oz. versus the 15 oz. capacity of the smoky version. I fully expect that the performance will be the same. The handle of the newer blue version is thicker than on the smoky version. This might be Junichi's response to a reviewer's concern that the thinner handle might break off easier. I have had no complaints of the thinner handle after using it for the last 2-1/2 years...it remains intact and undamaged. So why did I purchase a 2nd Junichi Tanaka scuttle? Quite frankly because I love the color. It's beauty is a sight to behold! Again, I would rate this scuttle a 6 on a scale of 1 to 5. It is rare to find an item that is as beautiful as it is in performance. I thank Mr. Tanaka for giving me a more pleasurable shaving experience.
