The Material - Genuine horn
Genuine horn has been used to make useful or decorative objects since ancient times. The natural material must be selected and processed with great care: Only solid horn tips are used for the handles of shaving brushes and razors. If the hand-picked tips are sufficiently thick, they are formed meticulously by a turner. Then they are very finely ground several times and finally polished to a high-gloss finish.
The gentle light to dark colouring makes the surface of the horn appear very warm. The graining of the work pieces shimmers from white to brown and dark brown, lending each product its own individual character.
Without chrome the world would forfeit a lot of its lustre. In the finish used for wet shaving accessories it demonstrates its best qualities: The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. When contrasted with this, the colours and shapes of other premium materials are shown to their very best advantage.
The Brushhead - Silvertip Fibre
The high-quality synthetic fibres represent a world first 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 Razorhead - Gillette Mach3
The Gillette Mach3 system is one of the most frequently used shaving systems in the world. Three progressively spaced blades guarantee a comfortable and close shave. Wet shave razors from MUHLE are compatible with the systems Gillette Mach3 and Mach3 Turbo
The buffalo horn used is from the tips of the horn - the best quality horn. As horn is a natural product expect variations in colour. Muhle has sourced light coloured buffalo horn for this set, the most beautifully coloured horn you can get.
Synthetic Silvertip Fibre Brush - Ideal for lathering shaving soaps and creams alike. These vegan fibres are easy to use and lather up a thicker lather from less cream or soap.
Dimensions: 35 mm x 101 mm, weight: 118 g
Muhle Mach3 Razor – The razor features Gillette’s progressivley spaced three blade technology Mach3 cartridge razor.
Dimension: 42 mm x 143 mm, weight: 54 g
The Stand and Lathering Bowl - The highly polished, chrome plated metal stand is perfect for allowing the brush to drip dry and aerate naturally - thus prolonging its life. The bowl is ideal for lathering up shaving creams and soaps. It's also handy for catching any drips from the shaving brush after use.
Dimensions: Height 130 mm, weight: 360 g, bowl diameter 90mm
Place some shaving cream or soap into the lathering bowl along with a few drops of warm water and use the brush to whisk up a rich creamy lather.
Apply the shaving cream or soap to your face with the brush.
Using the razor, shave twice with the grain of the hair and once against the grain.
When you're finished shaving, rinse the brush thoroughly and the razor, then hang both brush and razor on the stand to let them aerate well before your next shave.
Muhle produce some of the finest shaving products available today. We are great fans of their high levels of workmanship and excellent finish. This set is the perfect gift for both novice and expert wet shaver alike.
