From Muhle the German wet shaving masters, a high quality traditional cut throat razor with real olivewood scales and a stainless steel blade. The razor left the workshop in Bavaria, Germany 'shave ready'.
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, lined wooden 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)

220N grade stainless steel blade
The 100% natural Olivewood 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.
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.
Please take a look at our 'How To' guide before shaving with a cut throat razor, click here to read.
Learning how to shave with a cut throat razor takes skill, time and patience so too does the art of stropping. There are plenty of really good videos on YouTube that you should watch. After 9 months or so the blade may need honed. If this sounds like too much fuss, consider a Feather Cut Throat with a disposable blade, when the blade dulls you replace it, no stropping and no honing.
German made, quality assured. This razor bears all the hallmarks of a Muhle product. Attention to detail, effortlessly stylish and devoid of fancy frivolities.
