PURIST - Safety Razor and Silvertip Badger Brush Shaving Set in Ebonite
3-piece shaving set without bowl, including:
- Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush
- Closed Comb Safety Razor
- Chrome-plated Metal Stand
As part of our Classic Range, PURIST concentrates on the art of the essential; dispensing of all that is superfluous. This series is characterised by its gently rounded handles and a broadly shaped neck.
The natural material ebonite, made on the basis of natural rubber and sulphur, is reminiscent of ebony and delivers both durability and beauty. The process of creating this shaving brush begins with each handle being turned out of solid ebonite rods. All individual pieces are then polished in several passes, giving the surface its characteristic gleam and securing its beauty for many years to come. This is then finished with chrome metal highlights.
Among connoisseurs, silvertip badger is regarded as the pièce de résistance: Only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used for these purely handcrafted shaving brushes. The precious natural material is particularly soft and flexible.
The fine, conically tapering hairs possess the ability to retain a large amount of water and produce a dense, creamy lather. Another sign of quality is the even black band running horizontally through the predominantly silvery gleaming hair.
This premium product is manufactured using historical tools in an artisan procedure mastered by only a few specialists worldwide. The semi-circular shape of the brush head is created by hand when binding the brush. The fine tips therefore do not require trimming and the natural softness of the hair is retained.
A real investment piece, this razor supersedes the need for single-use plastic. Growing concern in the effects of disposable plastic makes this 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 MÜHLE razor blades, a perfect match for this timeless razor.
