Mühle Safety Razor
More Than Just Ordinary. Safety Razor and Brush by Mühle.
Wet shaving with a safety razor requires a fair amount of practice, not to mention a degree of skill. As soon as you have both under your belt, however, this method proves to be just as fast and thorough as shaving with system blades and also brings with it two handy advantages: The blades are not only cheaper, they are also environmentally friendlier in terms of manufacture and disposal, since they are made exclusively of metal.
As with any piece of kit, it is the details that make the difference; and so it is with razors. Subtle differences in the way they are made can have an eminent effect on handling and feel while shaving. Although razors with an open comb may allow for a very direct shaving technique, for example, they should only be used by a skilled hand. Razors with a closed comb, by contrast, offer a gentler shave, but don't scrimp on thoroughness. What’s more, they are suitable for those who are unfamiliar with this kind of razor. The choice of the handle, on the other hand, is purely a matter of taste; while one prefers a cool handle made of porcelain, others may opt for the warm velvety feel of natural horn or choose easy-to-clean synthetic resin. Ultimately, it is the interplay of weight, grip material and the type of razor head (open or closed comb), not forgetting the brush quality, which can transform an everyday object into a tool that is a pleasure to hold in the hand. Even if shaving is not counted as one of life’s favourite occupations, the right shaving utensils have the potential to turn shaving into an enjoyable ritual.
A Classic Razor - Brought into Modernity.
The shape of this Mühle razor is based on the classic form, albeit with a slightly longer handle and closed comb. As the razor can be separated into three parts, it can be cleaned very easily. The comb and cover are made of die-cast zinc, whilst the handle can be optionally made of horn, synthetic resin or porcelain, each with an end piece of chrome-plated brass. The razor comes with a blade, while matching shaving brushes, with fine silvertip badger hair, can be found in our assortment.
Horn is a natural product which always differs in colouring and graining. So products made of this material are never identical and thus unique in colour and marking. The product should be treated regularly, with our horn balm for example.
