August 28th, 2015 Comments Off on Junichi Tanaka Artisanal Shaving Scuttles Bring Class and Originality
One of our most-requested out-of-stock items in the last few months have been the Junichi Tanaka shaving scuttles. And every time a customer calls in asking when we’ll have more of these wonderful scuttles, we have to give the same reply: we don’t know!
The reason for this frustrating response is simple: every single one of these gorgeous mugs are handmade by one man. And when you’re working out of Whonnock, British Columbia it can be hard to ignore nature long enough to get back to work! And we certainly don’t fault Junichi Tanaka for taking his time – it’s that craftsmanship that makes these scuttles so unique and rare.
Each one is a single piece of glazed Alberta clay, intricately shaped through a 6-day process of slow firing and cooling. Inside the bowl, a textured finish helps create a lather that’s thick and protective, kept warm by the hot water chamber filled through the spout.
Whonnock, BC, is a rural community, set on the north side of the Fraser River. Some ways east of Vancouver, it’s become something of a meeting place for artisans, who gather there to craft a wide variety of goods. That’s why we sought out Mr. Tanaka specially and asked him to create these shaving scuttles for us. You won’t find them anywhere else – they’re custom-made for Fendrihan. We couldn’t be happier to say that they’re now back in stock!
June 17th, 2013 Comments Off on Product Spotlight: J.W. Hulme Co. Dopp Style Travel Kit
Each J.W. Hulme Co. Graystone Canvas Dopp Style Travel Kit is a masterpiece of canvas and leather. Already tough and durable, the Graystone canvas used in its construction is waxed to lend it additional protection. Over time, the wax rises to the surface, creating a pattern of shades and streaks unique to each piece. In contrast, the leather of the travel kit bag is distressed to enhance its appearance without compromising its strength. Combined, these elements lend this product an antique appearance over the fruits of modern engineering.
In 2003, J.W. Hulme Co. reduced its production numbers in an astounding demonstration of its commitment to ensuring that each one of its bags lived up to its high standards. It refused to either use automation or outsource to overseas labor, instead entrusting its production to American craftsmanship. As a result, all of the products from J.W. Hulme Co. are handmade, undergo personal inspections, and are attached to guarantees that last a lifetime.
May 8th, 2013 Comments Off on Product Spotlight: J.W. Hulme Co. Portage Overnight Briefcase LE
Designed for experienced travelers, the Limited Edition J.W. Hulme Co. Overnight Briefcase in Portage is a superb example of travel bags for men. Each leather briefcase is handmade using brass, comfortable lining, unbreakable thread, and top grain leathers. Possessing multiple compartments that can be secured using attached zippers, this product has no shortage of the storage space needed to hold business documents and a change of clothes for professional men heading out on overnight trips.
Although its founder started out manufacturing tents for American soldiers and did not start producing sporting bags until much later, J.W. Hulme Co. has since switched over to producing bags on a full-time basis. For much of its existence, the Minnesotan manufacturer focused on pursuing the same cost advantages as its competitors, but reconsidered in 2003. Skilled artisans living in the United States are responsible for making all of its modern bags by hand using nothing but materials purchased from domestic producers.
April 22nd, 2013 Comments Off on Treating ingrowns with Anthony Logistics’ Ingrown Hair Treatment Gel
Sometimes, facial hair can grow into the skin, causing it to become infected and inflamed. In many cases, the hairs curl to continue growing into the skin, while in other cases, they grow into the side of the hair follicles instead of emerging from the pores. Shaving is considered the leading cause of ingrown hairs because it results in shortened hairs with tips that are sharper than normal. As a result, it is easier for these shortened hairs to become trapped in the follicles by a build-up of dead skin and similar material and become ingrown hair. At the same time, it is also easier for the shortened hairs to penetrate the skin and cause hair follicle inflammation. » Read the rest of this entry «

August 9th, 2012 Comments Off on Is Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief Worth the Price?
Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief honors its name by efficiently taking care of small cuts. Forget the toilet paper bits.
Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief is a product that rivals the Clubman Styptic Pencil. Both products share one common goal. They are formulated to stop the bleeding that often occurs with wet shaving. Many men have experienced the inconvenience of small nicks and cuts that appear on their faces no matter how slowly and carefully they shave. Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief is one alternative to hastily applied bits of toilet paper placed all over one’s face.
Clubman Dab-On Nick Relief differs from its predecessor, the styptic pencil, in several different ways. One of the most dramatic ways in which it differs is the lack of a stinging sensation when applied. » Read the rest of this entry «
July 23rd, 2012 Comments Off on Does the Clubman Styptic Pencil Really Work?
Clubman Styptic Pencil, in its new advertising campaign masterfully art-directed by Toronto’s Steven Savicky.
The Clubman Styptic Pencil is one gentlemen’s shaving product that performs exactly as described. This small white stick in the distinctive green package contains alum, which is an astringent. This ingredient safely and effectively stops the bleeding associated with the nicks and cuts sometimes caused by shaving. The pencil is stored dry. The user moistens the tip slightly before pressing it against the skin at the site of the cut. It only takes one small application to constrict blood vessels at the site of the bleeding. The pencil leaves behind a light layer of white residue that seals the cut and protects it from becoming infected. Pinaud, the company behind the Clubman name, has a history that dates back to 1810 when it was created by a Parisian named Edouard Pinaud. » Read the rest of this entry «
