MÜHLE Shaving brush EDITION NO.3: Bog Oak, Silvertip Badger
Silvertip badger, handle material bog oak and sterling silver.
The Material - bog oak and sterling silver
Brand new in the series and also supremely elegant: EDITION No. 3. These products are completely new – and yet they tell of a long distant past: They are made of the finest bog oak, an oak wood which rested airtight in bogs, swamps or on river banks for millennia, thereby acquiring a beautiful dark hue. The wood is refined with sterling silver, so that the fine indentations on its surface acquire a silvery gleam. Finally, the surface of these products is sealed in a highgloss finish – the brush and razor are now not only beautiful, but also waterproof.
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 badger
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 and produce 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.
