The Line – CLASSIC
The popular CLASSIC line of the German manufacture Mühle offers tradition in top form. The light bulbous CLASSIC shaving brush is a timeless classic and available in various ring sizes: Small (19mm), medium (21mm) and large (23mm). The trim is hand-made, being either the vegan hair quality Silvertip Fibre® or natural premium shaving quality Silvertip badger hair. The fine shaving brush makes for a rich and creamy foam and massages the skin in a soft way.
The Material – Olive Wood
The especially strong olive wood is not only known for its excellent water-resistance but also its harmonic graining.
Since ancient times, olive wood is valued for its great materialistic properties and its warming color scheme. It can be found in the entire Mediterranean area and has been crafted into utensils and artful objects for centuries.
The woods used by Mühle have to be dried for months in advance. Only after this procedure the wood can be turned, the surface polished, sieged with oil and polished to a silky gloss. This emphasizes the soft and honey-colored graining of the wood.
The Brush – Silvertip Badger Hair
Among connoisseurs silvertip badger hair can be seen as the elite among natural brush materials. Only the best and carefully selected badger hairs are used for the shaving brush and assembled by hand. The precious natural material is especially soft and flexible. The fine and conically spreading hairs can store a lot of water and therefore create a dense and creamy foam.
A further quality feature is the so-called “mirror” – an even black line in the course of the mainly silver hair. The premium product is made with the help of historical tools in a manufactural process, which is only mastered by the very few.
Here, the half-rounded form of the brush is achieved by the manual binding of the hair. Due to this a retouch by cutting can be left out, keeping the natural softness of the hair.
