This wonderful, luxurious men's shaving set is made by Muhle of Germany one of the biggest names in wet shaving and men's grooming in the world. This set differs from most others due to the genuine horn that the handles for the shaving brush and razor are made from. Due to the horn handles, no two sets are alike as the colours and patterns in the horn vary so much. The set you buy will be the only one exactly like it in the whole world.
The safety razor benefits from the much admired R89 safety razor head and a perfectly balanced, long handle. The razor will deliver a mild yet close shave every time.
The brush as you would expect has a knot of the finest silvertip badger hair.
Keeping everything neat and tidy and well presented in the bathroom is the elegant Sophist, chrome plated stand. The stand has a small 63.5mm diameter footprint.
The razor is compatible with all double edge safety razor blades
Handle length: 113mm
Knot: 23mm (diameter of hair when it enters the handle)
Loft: 55mm (length of brush hair), total height of brush: 102mm
Base diameter: 63.5mm
The set comes with one Muhle safety razor blade and a sturdy Muhle branded presentation box.

The Muhle Sophist collection is regarded as a design classic which symbolises the archetype of traditional shaving culture. Simple, fuss-free lines, exceptional design and high quality materials combine perfectly together for this real horn safety razor set.
Only solid horn tips are used for the handles of Muhle Sophist 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 brush and razor both benefit from shiny chrome detailing.
The stand is a metal alloy plated with shiny chrome.
The brush has a generous knot of silvertip badger hair which is ultra-smooth on the face yet good for lathering up hard shaving soap pucks as well as soft shaving creams.
Muhle say this about the silvertip hair on this brush:
Among connoisseurs, silvertip badger is regarded as the pièce de résistance: Only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used for these purely handcrafted shaving brushes. The precious natural material is particularly soft and flexible. The fine, conically tapering hairs possess the ability to retain a large amount of water leading to a dense, creamy lather. Another sign of quality is the even black band running horizontally through the predominantly silvery gleaming hair. This premium product is manufactured using historical tools in an artisan procedure mastered by only a few specialists worldwide. 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.
