Muhle 6/8ths African Blackwood Cut Throat Razor

Out of stock

This German made, Muhle razor features striking, highly unusual African Blackwood scales (handles) while the 6/8ths (18.5mm) blade is good for beginners and experienced users.
The scales have been been treated so they remain waterproof for life. The blade is acid etch washed with the Muhle windmill logo and 'Hollow Ground, Made in Germany', the tang is stamped 'Stainless Steel DESU LC 220N'. This relates to the grade of stainless steel used.
The razor comes in a grey coloured wooden, lined presentation box with Muhle branding.
Muhle describe the razor as being 'shave ready'. In reality most brand new razors require stropping to make them absolutely shave ready. This is down to the fin (the cutting edge of the blade) microscopically bending over. This is not abnormal and a quick strop will fix that.

The 100% natural Bog Oak scales have been expertly polished to a high sheen and waterproof treated . As the scales are made from natural wood, expect differences in the colour and grain of each scale from the photograph. No two razors will be exactly alike.
About African Blackwood
The colour of your scales may vary between black and very dark brown. The grain is very tight and mostly straight. African Blackwood is considered to be among the hardest and densest of woods in the world; indeed, among some 285 species tested, (including Lignum Vitae), Gabriel Janka originally found African Blackwood to be the very hardest.
