A shaving set from Muhle, it consists of a pure badger hair shaving brush, a Steamed Ash razor handle made for use with a Gillette® Fusion® razor head, a chromeplated stand and soap dish. Besides beech and oak, ash is one of the most important indigenous deciduous timbers. It is to be found in Europe, most frequently in the more northerly regions. The wood is briefly heated to a very high temperature. In this process it attains high resistance to water, the grain is accentuated and the wood takes on its brown colour. In order to preserve the naturalness of the surface, however, it is treated only with oil, not lacquered. This provides the wood with perfect protection against water and makes it particularly longlasting.
