Product description

TRADITIONAL - Safety razor from MÜHLE, closed comb, handle gold plated metal

  • safety razor – classic blade
  • Handles made of golden metal
For the Adept and the Spontaneous: the limited R89 Christmas edition in gold 

All in time for the festive season (and because there can never be enough pretty new items) Mühle is offering a gift with scarcity value: the R89 Christmas edition - limited to only 999 pieces, all of them covered with a fine layer of high-grade genuine gold. 
The R89 series includes three elaborately processed and refined instruments: the extremely elegant safety razor with a classic razor blade, this fine brush with an edging of either silvertip badger hair or the vegan option Silvertip Fibre and the holder which was especially developed for the R89 series. 

In the assortment of the manufactory which is world-famous for its fashionable bathroom equipment, this line has been some sort of all-time favourite for a long time. For generations, fine gentlemen from Oxford to Oklahoma use those handcrafted instruments to give their skin some special care and themselves a time out. The R89 safety razor was once a little revolution in the world of wet shaving. Today, that world can not be imagined without it anymore.  A classic, one could say. But: At Mühle it is a miracle of perfection, ergonomics and beauty. And it takes the know-how that will be - if you are fast enough - rewarded with money. In this sense: Merry Christmas! 

P.S.: Suitable blades are, of course, available in specialist stores all over the world.


The Razorhead - Classic razor blade

For generations, the safety razor has been regarded as a stylish classic which can even shave edges with precision. For many, it is the razor par excellence. Its styling is ideally suited to the design of the MÜHLE products.

Even if the open blade does demand a little respect at first: After a brief familiarisation period, and guided by a steady hand, it produces a very close shave and a lasting result. Unlike modern blade systems, the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap.

Application

Shaving with a safety razor requires a little practice. The skin also needs some time to grow accustomed to the shave. Getting started will be easier if you follow these instructions:

Moisten the beard area, preferably with warm water, and lather it thoroughly with a brush. The longer you lather the beard, the more easily and gently the hairs can be cut. If possible, use a highly effective moisturising shaving cream or soap as this will allow the blade to slide over the skin more easily. Make sure that the shaving head and handle are firmly attached to each other, but only tighten the screw to the extent that it can be unscrewed without too much effort.

This ensures that the blade rests at the correct angle. Now begin with the shave. Hold the safety razor at an obtuse angle (approx. 30°) to the skin. Start with the cheeks and allow the razor to slide over the skin, applying gentle pressure. Always shave in the direction of the beard growth (with the grain). When shaving the neck, stretch the skin tight with your free hand. Do not be discouraged by small cuts or grazes. Once you have familiarised yourself with the razor, they will rarely occur.

THE SERIES TRADITIONAL - FOR CONNOISSEURS WITH HIGH STANDARDS

The safety razor with replaceable blades once revolutionised wet shaving and is today one of the most classic shaving accessories. At MÜHLE it is more than that: a minor marvel of precision, ergonomics and beauty, created for ambitious wet shavers.

Anyone who masters the ritual after some practice will never want to shave without a safety razor! Suitable interchangeable blades, standardised for decades, are available from specialist retailers all over the world.

Our models come in high-quality chrome-plating with fine chasing or combined with stylish high-grade resin in the popular classic colours black and white. A particularly exclusive option is the handle coated with rose gold.

Matching brushes in the qualities silvertip badger and Silvertip Fibre® as well as three elegant holder models make the set complete. And finally, perhaps the best thing of all? Due to their practical sizes, safety razors and brushes naturally also serve as ideal travel companions.
