A shaving set from Muhle, it consists of a silvertip badger hair shaving brush, a closed comb safety razor and a chrome-plated stand. Muhle’s Traditional Closed Comb Metal Safety Razor is made from metal with chrome-plated highlights. The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. The blade is held in place by the curvature of the cap and the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap. The shaving result is dependent on the factors beard growth, the density and length of the beard hair, and how these interact with the blade and safety razor. Some will achieve optimal results with a very sharp blade, while others can profit more from gentler blades. Only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used for these purely handcrafted shaving brushes. The precious natural material is particularly soft and flexible. The fine, conically tapering hairs possess the ability to retain a large amount of water and produce a dense, creamy lather. Another sign of quality is the even black band running horizontally through the predominantly silvery gleaming hair. This premium product is manufactured using historical tools in an artisan procedure mastered by only a few specialists worldwide. The semi-circular shape of the brush head is created by hand when binding the brush. The fine tips therefore do not require trimming and the natural softness of the hair is retained.
