Muhle Purist R55SR Karelian Masur Birch 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

One of the most distinctive and rare materials, Karelian Masur Birch is grown in a small area of Karelia during the mid-winter season. Harvested only when the ground is frozen, the harsh climatic conditions result in the low growth height of the Masur Birch which, in turn, produces the wood’s characteristically rich grain.

Once picked, the square timbers are then shaped by turning. Only the finest quality Masur Birch is then further processed and stabilized during a special procedure. This procedure ensures the wood becomes hard-wearing and water-resistant.

The use of natural material ensures that each product is unique, the handle’s graining adding individual character to each brush, razor, and set.

The Razor

A real investment piece, the R55SR supersedes the need for single-use plastic. A growing concern in the effects of disposable plastic makes the R55SR 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.
