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 Limited edition - 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.
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.
