The Material - African Blackwood

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. – We use only African Blackwood from certified, sustainable plantations.

Without chrome the world would forfeit a lot of its lustre. In the finish used for our 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 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 Razorhead - Classic razor blade

For generations, the safety razor has been regarded as a stylish classic which can even shave edges with precision. For many, it is the razor par excellence. Its styling is ideally suited to the design of the MÜHLE products.

Even if the open blade does demand a little respect at first: After a brief familiarisation period, and guided by a steady hand, it produces a very close shave and a lasting result. Unlike modern blade systems, the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap. They can be purchased from us and by retailers everywhere.

How to use
+

Shaving with a safety razor takes a bit of practice and your skin also needs some time to get used to a traditional wet shave. Here are some tips:  

• As with any wet shave, the face should be previously washed and rinsed with warm water.

• Next, create a good lather on the area to be shaved with a shaving brush, using circular movements.

• The more thoroughly you foam the beard, the easier the subsequent shave will be.

• Make sure the razor head and handle are firmly fixed in place. However, the thread should be tightened only enough so that it can be loosened again without much effort.

• Now, start shaving. The razor should be placed on the skin at the lowest possible angle (about 30 °).

• Start in the area of the cheeks and only press lightly on the razor! Glide it over the skin.

• Always shave “with the grain”, namely in the direction of the growth of the beard.

• Shave the neck area by pulling the skin down a bit. Again, the following rules apply: flat angle, light pressure, short strokes, rinsing the razor regularly.  

Don’t be discouraged by minor injuries, you're a hero, right? Experience has shown that injuries rarely occur after a period of familiarisation.
