This magnificent, traditional, straight, cut throat razor is from Muhle and it was made in Germany. The scales (handles) are made from rare Bog Oak they've been treated and they will 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.
Hollow ground 6/8ths wide blade (18.5mm)
Mirror polished blade with a round nose
220N grade stainless steel blade
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 Bog Wood
Bog-wood is created from the trunks of trees that have lain in bogs, and bog-like conditions such as lakes, rivers and swamps, for centuries and even millennia. Deprived of oxygen, the wood undergoes the process of fossilization and morta formation. This results in interesting variations in grain and colour.
With great care, this blade is very sharp indeed. We strongly recommend you watch a few YouTube tutorial videos before you shave with this razor, we also advise a lubricating, cushioning shaving cream be used which will deliver superior razor glide - Natural Shaving Cream.

Well made and well priced for such a quality bit of gear. You've got to applaud Muhle for their worth to the wet shaving community. This is a great razor to start traditional wet shaving and a fine addition for an experienced cut throat user looking for another razor.
