The Material - Genuine horn
Genuine horn has been used to make useful or decorative objects since ancient times. The natural material must be selected and processed with great care: Only solid horn tips are used for the handles of shaving brushes and razors. If the hand-picked tips are sufficiently thick, they are formed meticulously by a turner. Then they are very finely ground several times and finally polished to a high-gloss finish.
The gentle light to dark colouring makes the surface of the horn appear very warm. The graining of the work pieces shimmers from white to brown and dark brown, lending each product its own individual character.
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.
The Razorhead - Gillette® Fusion™
The latest shaving system from Gillette® embraces five blades positioned one above the other as well as a precision edging blade located on the back of the cartridge. This design ensures a very close and gentle shave. Its simple and safe handling is ideal even for newcomers. The blades are available from retailers everywhere.
The blade guard made of plastic protects the blade and prevents from cuts when storing the safety razor or while traveling. Works for all MÜHLE Gillette® Fusion™ razors.
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.
