    General Information

    Shaving brush. It has to be badger hair

    The fine tips of badger hair are the only way to produce a fine-pored, creamy lather for a shave that is gentle on the skin. The white badger hair silver tip is unsurpassed. It is significantly finer, softer and more flexible than the gray badger tip. The tapered hair can absorb a lot of water and whip up a particularly thick and creamy lather - provided you have a good soap. You can recognize the high quality of the fine silver tip by the typical three-coloured pattern: light in the lower area, dark, almost black in the middle and lightly set off at the tips. The clearer the pattern on the brush and the middle dark band in the course of the hair, the mirror, the more carefully the hair has been collected (as the name suggests, it is plucked) and processed - both of which are done by hand - and the higher the quality. The hair is placed upside down in a bump box and shaken and bumped until the desired contour is achieved. To preserve the fine hair tips, the brush is not mechanically reworked. The brush maker only removes so-called ricochets, which are barely visible to the untrained eye. With proper handling and care (gently lather the skin, wash the soap out of the trim completely with warm water, leave the shaving brush to dry hanging), a badger hair trim can remain in use for a good ten years.

    Shaving Brush and Straight Razor by Mühle.

    While not every craft business succeeds in balancing tradition and modernity, the Mühle shaving brush manufactory does: The still family-run company has preserved the traditional knowledge of the craft while welcoming new materials, manufacturing methods and contemporary designs. The manufactory in the Ore Mountains produces articles, 90% handmade, for wet shaving. The heart of the company is up to the present day the manufacturing of the shaving brush. The brush makers need a sure touch, a steady hand and a good eye to work with the fine badger hair. In the first step, they carefully sort the hair, weigh the fibres out to the tenth of a gram and then tap them into shape in a box. Then they take the 20,000 or so hairs with great care out of the moulding box and, without a single hair slipping out of place, tie them firmly into a tassel called loft. When they have finished the form of the loft, they glue and mount it on the handle of the shaving brush. They manufacture all brushes with extreme care, whether made of badger hair or special synthetic fibres; we offer both hair and fibres in a range of different qualities. Mühle produces the shaving brushes and razors in full at the company’s headquarters in Hundshübel. Parts are sourced as far as possible from the region.
