This set benefits from a new generation MÜHLE Synthetic Fibre® shaving brush. Not to be confused with cheap, prickly on the skin supermarket synthetic brushes, this brush is super-soft on the face.
The razor is the highly rated Muhle R106, the head of this razor is exactly the same head as the world's top selling safety razor the Muhle R89. This head delivers a very mild yet highly effective, close shave. The shiny, black resin handle is non-slip when wet.
THIS SET IS ALSO AVAILABLE WITH THE R41 RAZOR WHICH IS MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN THE R106, PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU PREFER THE R41 VERSION.
The handles on the razor and brush are lathe turned and polished.
Here's what Muhle say about their fibre brush:
The Brushhead - Silvertip Fibre®
The high-quality synthetic fibres represent a world first of our own invention. We offer a synthetically produced premium quality whose material characteristics are analogous to those of the precious natural hair, silvertip badger. The majority of the users even say that this quality actually provides better performance characteristics than the natural hair.
'Silvertip Fibre®' is very soft at its fine tips, but somewhat more stable than natural hair in the middle section. These characteristics produce a pleasant, soft sensation on the skin when the lather is applied, without having to forgo the desired firmness of the hairs in the lathering process. In daily use, the manually processed fibres are less sensitive than natural hair as they dry more quickly and are resistant to shaving soaps and creams.
The completely vegan fibres are also somewhat easier to use than natural hair as they produce a particularly creamy and thick lather from a small amount of shaving soap or cream, which is used much more sparingly as a result. 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.
If you have never used a safety razor before, please watch this video BEFORE your first shave.
Be gentle with the shaving brush, never expose the brush to hot water. Warm is hot enough.
Don't splay the brush hairs, lather up with the tips of the brush then paint the lather onto the face.
After shaving rinse the brush with warm running water, flick the brush over the sink to get rid of most of the water, run the brush over a towel a few times then hang to dry on the stand preferably near to an open window.
Very stylish, very practical, well priced, made in Germany and no badger had to die to provide hair for the shaving brush. The R106 razor is one of our top selling razors; it delivers a mild yet close shave. The stand has a small footprint so this set doesn't take up much bathroom space.
Stand: Chrome plated metal alloy.
Brush: High quality resin and chromed metal alloy with Silvertip Fibre hairs.
Razor: High quality resin and chromed metal alloy.
