Historically heavy utensils, safety razors have evolved into lightweight, plastic exaggerations, cartoonishly futuristic objects that must have their forebear’s lather-catchers spinning. Muehle’s razor harks back to the weighted control of the original big boys. You may find that this razor glides on its own heft, a characteristic feature that sets it apart from pop-off cartridges and the disposable types. With Muehle’s precision cutlery, your shave will no longer be a few cursory strokes between lather and rinse. Even on your busiest mornings, this razor gives you a quick respite with its responsive movements and efficient cut. The closed comb design is less aggressive and easier to work with than open comb or slanted comb safety razors, and of course far less likely to slice a vein than a straight edge.
While this razor quickly surpasses its peers, newcomers will need a bit of practice. Your skin will have to adapt to the shave of the razor. In other words, you’re both in this together. Once skin and razor have gotten to know each other, it'll be a bond that's hard to break. Hang the razor in the stand to keep it dry and help maintain the sharpness of the blade. When you have a place to put your razor, it becomes a respected object and a reminder not to whip and slip and raze your face in a hurry on your way out the door. The wet shave routine is one to look forward to—a glorious tradition and lost art.
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 beg to be used.
Whether it’s a $15 fade-and-shave or the gentlemen’s full treatment, our nostalgia for barbershop culture is inescapable, if not gladly indulged. As an ode to the sacred ritual of wet shaving, this classic shaver is double-edged with a forgiving, closed comb design, chrome-plated details, and a reassuring weightiness that can pull any wet shaver or dry convert back to feeling like a spruce swell. It offers an un-aggressive morning shave and adjusts to your beard and shaving style over time.
