The Material - Carbon
Carbon is an element which occurs naturally in a wide variety of forms. Carbon compounds are even to be found in diamonds. Engineers and active racing experts enthuse about the carbon used in industry.
Aesthetes love above all the fine light reflections created by the dark material. Following a complex development process we use this challenging material for the innovative design of MÜHLE EDITION No. 1. In doing so, we work the conventional, flexible fibrous structures by hand in a special process.
Individual blanks – which later become the handles of brushes and razors – are covered with the weave. Then they are placed in a form where the fibres are evenly aligned and soaked and cured with high-grade resin in several work steps, then finally polished. This produces the gleaming surfaces with their dynamic reflections.
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 EDITION SERIES - CREATED FOR CONNOSOISSEURS WITH THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
MÜHLE EDITION with the luxury model series No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 is the crowning glory of our overall programme. Voluminous shapes and an expressive silhouette conjoin with the purist design principle that is typical of MÜHLE.
The resulting proportions underline the value of the processed materials carbon, Chinese lacquer and bog oak/sterling silver. These masterpieces are made by hand in the finest precision work: from the manufacture of removable brush heads made of the best silvertip badger, the polishing of metal parts to the coating of the surfaces and the manufacture of the handles.
Each of these valuable unique pieces is made exclusively to order and delivered with an illustrated booklet in a high-gloss lacquered presentation box.
