CLASSIC - Shaving Brushes
A tribute to the beginnings of shaving culture as well as to the origins of the MÜHLE manufactory – the shaving brushes from the CLASSIC line with their traditional, slightly bulbous shape. Because some like it more opulent, while others swear by sleeker formats, the timeless brushes are available in ring sizes of 19, 21, 23 mm and partially 25 mm. The Silvertip Fibre® or silvertip badger trimming is handmade. All brush heads feature a fine black band around the shimmering, silver-coloured hair, which connoisseurs and experts alike call a mirror. Times and fashions come and go, but one thing stays the same, namely the fact that a good shaving brush and creamy shaving lather are the beginning of a care ritual in which the hectic pace of everyday life is put on hold for a brief moment. That was true in the past, and it’s still true today.
- High-Grade Resin
High-grade resin is a high-quality synthetic material, the surface of which is processed and refined separately. The material is ideal for exclusive accessories and writing implements because it facilitates a broad spectrum of modern and classical designs in many attractive colours.
To begin with, the aesthetic basic shapes for brush and razor handles are turned out of solid rods. Then each individual work piece is polished in several passes to give the surface its special gleam. This processing method lends the models a pleasant feel and secures their beauty for many years to come.
- Olive wood
Since ancient times, olive wood has been valued for its outstanding material characteristics and warm colouring. It is to be found throughout the Mediterranean region and has been used for centuries to make durable goods or artistic objects.
The wood we use must be dried carefully for months before the handles are turned. We then sand the surfaces, seal them with oil and polish them to a silky finish. This brings out the gentle, honey-coloured grain of the wood particularly well.
- Silvertip Fibre®
This premium quality, durable synthetic fibre is a worldwide innovation and proof from us that art is capable of surpassing nature. The synthetically produced hair, which is also suitable for vegans, is very easy to look after and dries faster than any natural material. The fibres are made by hand and are particularly soft at the tip. At the same time, the lower part of the brush is firmer and provides sufficient backbone for a pleasant massage effect even when wet. In addition, Silvertip Fibre® guarantees a luxurious lather even when using the smallest amounts of shaving soap or cream.
- Silvertip Badger
A tried and trusted classic and the undisputed leader of the natural hair range: silvertip badger is particularly soft and flexible and is exclusively handmade at MÜHLE. Its silver sheen and a black band around each individual hair, which connoisseurs call a mirror, are noble distinguishing features. Its fine, conically shaped hair absorbs a lot of water and guarantees a dense, creamy lather.
