Muhle Sophist S 93 B 42 SSR 4 Piece Shaving Set Genuine Horn
A shaving set from Muhle, it consists of a silvertip badger hair shaving brush, a Genuine Horn closed comb safety razor, a chrome-plated stand and soap dish. 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. 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 blade is held in place by the curvature of the cap and the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap. The shaving result is dependent on the factors beard growth, the density and length of the beard hair, and how these interact with the blade and safety razor. Some will achieve optimal results with a very sharp blade, while others can profit more from gentler blades. We recommend Muhle’s rust-proof razor blades which are the perfect match for Muhle’s safety razors.
