The Material - Chinese lacquer.
Made from the finest natural lacquer, the MÜHLE EDITION No. 2 shaving set 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 workpieces 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.
The renowned Japanese company Yamada Heinado, that manufactures the handles for our Edition No. 2, also supplies its handiwork to the Japanese imperial family. 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.
The Brushhead - Silvertip Badger.
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.
The Razorhead - Gillette® Fusion™
The latest shaving system from Gillette® embraces five blades positioned one above the other as well as a precision edging blade located on the back of the cartridge. This design ensures a very close and gentle shave. Its simple and safe handling is ideal even for newcomers. The blades are available from retailers everywhere.
