Muhle Purist 091H59 Briar Wood Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush

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. 

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.

Silvertip Badger

Natural, soft, and flexible; only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used to create these handcrafted shaving brushes.

Silvertip badger hair represents the finest, softest and rarest quality of badger hair available. The hair is renowned for its ability to retain large amounts of water, enabling the brush to quickly produce a dense, stable, and creamy lather.

Manufactured using historical tools, the semi-circular shape of the brush is created by hand when binding. The fine tips of the hair, therefore, do not require trimming and the natural softness of the hair is retained. This artisan procedure is mastered by only a few specialists worldwide, the quality of work evident in the even black band running through the predominantly silver brush head.
