For wet shaving, the brush is as important as the blade. The silvertip badger hair on this brush absorbs hot water and then releases and mixes it with the shaving cream as you build and then apply the lather. The brush creates a thicker, richer, more emollient lather than what you can get with your fingers alone. The brush also gently exfoliates your skin before shaving, getting rid of anything that might come between the blade and your whiskers. The up-down brushing lifts your whiskers, suspending them upright in the thick lather, so you can get the closest shave possible.

Badger hair is held in high regard by shaving aficionados, and the silvertip variety all but eliminates prickling—so much so that “bristle” hardly seems the right word.

Use & Care

When shaving, wet the brush thoroughly, then give it a couple of good shakes to get rid of the excess water. Apply soap or cream in a gentle swirling motion until the tips of the brush are well coated. Gently work the brush in a circular motion in a mug to build the lather and then apply in light up-and-down motion to your beard. Muehle suggests that you apply your safety razor at a 30-degree angle down your beard's grain.

Obsessively ritualistic as wet shave proponents can be, regular handle polishing (with carnuba wax and a toothbrush) will be performed more out of ceremony than necessity, although the bristles could use an annual dip in a mild borax solution to prevent mildew. Keep it hanging from Muehle's shaving stand to eke an even longer life out of it.

Production & Design

Now under the Hans-Jürgen Müller GmbH & Co KG conglomerate, Muehle is based in Stützengrün, Germany where crafters pore endlessly over product design and construction. Known for their signature badger-hair shaving brushes, Muehle also produces fine razors, soaps, creams and shaving kits.  

Buffalo horn, urushi lacquer, bog oak, and velvet steel are just a few of the materials that are used in producing Muehle's brushes and razors. Both luxurious and robust, Muehle's basic materials are its trademark. Handcrafted in completely dust-free environments on vibration-cancelling granite tables, Muehle's products are not to be decorative; rather, they are begging to be used.
