Made from the finest natural lacquer, MÜHLE EDITION No. 2 is precious and incomparably beautiful. Applied manually in wafer-thin layers, lacquer has long been a symbol of perfection and aestheticism. The first evidence of lacquer art dates back to the year 300 B.C. The craft of processing the resin of the Asian lacquer tree has been perfected continuously over the millennia.
In the ancient world, red and black , and later more colours , were applied in several layers. After curing, the work pieces are once again treated, polished, painted or engraved. Urushi is the name given to this artistic craft in Japan, and the expressions Japanese or Chinese lacquer are frequently used.
Our Edition series is created under the same conditions: the total absence of dust, the manual application of numerous layers and several polishing procedures. The less material used, the finer and deeper the shine.
Without chrome the world would forfeit a lot of its lustre. In the finish used for our wet shaving accessories it demonstrates its best qualities: The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. When contrasted with this, the colours and shapes of other premium materials are shown to their very best advantage.
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.
