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 - Gillette® Mach3®

The Gillette® Mach3® system is one of the most frequently used shaving systems in the world. Three progressively spaced blades guarantee a comfortable and close shave. The blades are available from retailers everywhere. Wet shave razors from MÜHLE are compatible with the systems Gillette® Mach3® and Mach3® Turbo.

THE SOPHIST SERIES - CULTIVATED AND EXQUISITE

Matured personalities with character are considered sophisticated. Noble elegance and perfection lend them an unmistakable appearance. It is not for nothing that our SOPHIST collection is regarded as a design classic which symbolises the archetype of traditional shaving culture.

Connoisseurs love the harmonious combination of classic form and the best materials. Only the solid horn tips are processed into handle models made of buffalo horn. Grenadilla wood is also used to make fine musical instruments.

Porcelain, the white gold of China, has been a cultural commodity since time immemorial. Model variants made of polished high-grade resin, which is also used for other luxurious accessories, are equally beautiful.
