Sophisticated and discerning, the SOPHIST collection is part of the MÜHLE classic range. Combining timeless forms with fine materials, SOPHIST is a celebration of traditional Rasurkultur.
Made from Grenadilla, or African Blackwood, this shaving brush is turned, oiled and polished to a mirror finish. Having been used in Europe for over 500 years, initially in the manufacture of musical instruments, the notable density and hardness of African Blackwood makes for a reliable and beautiful shaving brush.
MÜHLE sources its African Blackwood from certified, sustainable plantations.
Natural, soft and flexible; only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used to create these handcrafted shaving brushes.
Silvertip badger hair represents the finest, softest and rarest quality of badger hair available. The hair is renowned for its ability to retain large amounts of water, enabling the brush to quickly produce a dense, stable and creamy lather.
Manufactured using historical tools, the semi-circular shape of the brush is created by hand when binding. The fine tips of the hair, therefore, do not require trimming and the natural softness of the hair is retained. This artisan procedure is mastered by only a few specialists worldwide, the quality of work evident in the even black band running through the predominantly silver brush head.
