Ash is one of the most important indigenous deciduous timbers found today. For our purposes, the wood is briefly heated to a very high temperature and during this process, it attains high resistance to water, the grain is accentuated and the wood takes on its brown colour.
In order to preserve the naturalness of the surface, however, it is treated only with oil, not lacquered. This provides the wood with perfect protection against water and makes it particularly long-lasting.
We developed this purely vegan quality specially for wet shaving. In their dark colouring and softness the synthetic fibres largely resemble natural hair material of pure badger quality and are also a little softer at the tips. The synthetic fibres possess equally good performance characteristics.
At the same time, the fibres prove somewhat sturdier and more durable. Some users prefer this material not only due to its vegan properties, but also because it produces particularly creamy shaving lather.
