STYLO – Shaving brush from MÜHLE, silvertip badger, handle material thuja woodSTYLO Shaving brush with silvertip badger
- Ring size M: 21 mm to unscrew- Handle is made of thuja wood with chrome-plated metal highlightsThe Material – Thuja woodFrom golden brown to ruddy, with subtle or vivid veining in the grain: The burl of the sandarac tree, or Barbary thuja as it is also known, is regarded as one of the most valuable and most beautiful woods in the world. The strongly grained root burl only grows to a respectable size once the tree has died.
The tuber is therefore, hard to find and to recover. The scantlings are picked by hand and turned. Only sections displaying an exceptionally beautiful grain are selected. While being made into handles, the wood is stabilized and coated with high-grade resin in a special technique. This makes it water-resistant and hard-wearing. The high gloss surface vividly accentuates the individual veining of the grain.
Chrome, the final touch added to the masterpiece, demonstrates its best qualities: The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. When contrasted with this, the shapes of other premium materials are shown to their very best advantage.
The Brushhead – Silvertip badgerAmong connoisseurs, silvertip badger is regarded as the pièce de résistance: Only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used for these genuinely handcrafted shaving brushes. The precious natural material is particularly soft and flexible.
The fine, conical tapering hairs possess the ability to retain a large amount of water and creates a dense, creamy lather. A pronounced sign of high quality of badger hair is the even black band running horizontally through the predominantly silvery gleaming hair. This premium product is manufactured using historical tools in a highly artisanal procedure mastered by only a few specialists worldwide.
The semi-circular shape of the brush head is produced by hand when binding the brush. The fine tips therefore do not require trimming and the natural softness of the hair is retained.
The brush heads are manufactured from the finest quality and are easily interchangeable via the fine integrated screw-thread.
