Introducing the G20 Shaving Scuttle

After months in the making we’re very excited to introduce our newest shaving scuttle, the G20. After an incredible response to our G5 scuttle, we were inspired by the wonderful support of the active shaving community and decided to make another model. Like the G5, we relied heavily on the comments, advice and input from the wet shaving community to craft a scuttle that works as good as it looks.

 

Larger Water Capacity

The most common comment from customers was that they wished the scuttle had a larger water reservoir. With the G20, we set out address exactly that. When designing the outside of the scuttle, consideration was given to counter space, its height, durability, heat retention and overall aesthetics. After many revisions, we think the G20 is the finest looking scuttle available (admittedly we’re slightly biased.) While the reservoir is much larger than the G5 model, the G20 is far from cumbersome. We’re happy to announce that the G20 scuttle holds 20 ounces of water!

 

New Raised Features

Never ones to rest on our laurels, we set our attention to the inner lather bowl. For the G20 scuttle, we’ve increased the size of the inner bowl to 4” diameter x 2-1/2” deep, and the top 1/2” of the walls are near vertical to help keep the lather from escaping. Maybe the most exciting new features of the G20 are the raised vertical ridges and bottom bumps. Think of these as speed bumps for your brush. After testing many different “inward” cuts, ridges and patterns we started to experiment with “outward” or raised features. Immediately we found that we were able to create lather faster and more effectively with the raised. Our prototype testers agreed that the vertical ridges and bottom bumps were a success.

 

New Stopper

To top it all off, literally, we’ve teamed up with a local pewter smith to create an embossed pewter cap for our stopper. After trying cork and wood, we’ve found rubber to be the most effective stopper material for leak prevention and heat retention. 

 

What About the G5?

Fear not G5 fans, the G20 isn’t meant to replace the G5, it’s meant to accommodate the different shaving styles and products of the shaving community.
