Muhle Purist R59SR Briar Wood Handle Safety Razor

As part of our Classic Range, PURIST concentrates on the art of the essential; dispensing of all that is superfluous. This series is characterized by its gently rounded handles and a broadly shaped neck. 

The Material

Taken from the Erica Arborea shrub, Briar Wood has long been used to create fine tobacco pipes because of its fire-resistant properties. Obtained from the root structure of the shrub, the dense roots are dug out by hand when the plant is a minimum of thirty years old.

After harvesting, the wood is then cut into blocks, cooked, and rested for up to a year. Only after this processing does the wood take on its beautiful reddish hue. The finest sections of the wood are then processed further by sanding, staining, waxing, and polishing.

Each Briar Wood handle possesses its own unique pattern of swirling grain, lending individual character to every brush, razor, and set.

The Razor

A real investment piece, the R59SR supersedes the need for single-use plastic. Growing concern about the effects of disposable plastic makes the R59SR a great choice for the environmentally conscious, reducing both unnecessary plastic waste and unwelcome environmental impacts, without compromising on precision.

Blades are easily replaced by unscrewing the head of the Safety Razor. Replacement blades can be purchased from us, we recommend the rust-proof Muhle razor blades, a perfect match for this timeless razor.
