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 Gold 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.
The high-quality synthetic fibres represent a world first of our own invention. We offer a synthetically produced premium quality whose material characteristics are analogous to those of the precious natural hair, silvertip badger. The majority of the users even say that this quality actually provides better performance characteristics than the natural hair.
'Silvertip Fibre®' is very soft at its fine tips, but somewhat more stable than natural hair in the middle section. These characteristics produce a pleasant, soft sensation on the skin when the lather is applied, without having to forgo the desired firmness of the hairs in the lathering process. In daily use, the manually processed fibres are less sensitive than natural hair as they dry more quickly and are resistant to shaving soaps and creams.
The completely vegan fibres are also somewhat easier to use than natural hair as they produce a particularly creamy and thick lather from a small amount of shaving soap or cream, which is used much more sparingly as a result.
