Exquisite Sophist 4-part shaving set with bowl from Muhle featuring:
Grenadilla or African Blackwood has been used in Europe for 500 years, initially to manufacture musical instruments. It is one of the hardest woods worldwide and displays a particularly beautiful, dark brown to black grain. The high density and hardness of this natural material predestines it as a wet shaving accessory: The wood is turned, oiled and polished to a mirror finish.
The result is a shimmering, highly water-resistant surface which further accentuates the grain. An attractive contrast to this is formed by the edging with gleaming chrome sections. Muhle use only African Blackwood from certified, sustainable plantations.
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 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 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 African Blackwood used in the handles of this shaving set is sourced from certified, sustainable plantations. The wood is turned, oiled and polished to a mirror finish, one which allows the natural grain to shine through.
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.

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 a 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.
