Muhle’s Traditional Closed Comb Tortoiseshell Safety Razor’s handle is made from highgrade resin with chromeplated metal highlight. The highgrade resin is a highquality synthetic material. The blade is held in place by the curvature of the cap and the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap. The shaving result is dependent on the factors beard growth, the density and length of the beard hair, and how these interact with the blade and safety razor. Some will achieve optimal results with a very sharp blade, while others can profit more from gentler blades. We recommend Muhle’s rustproof razor blades which are the perfect match for Muhle’s safety razors. Usage When shaving, the safety razor should at first be drawn across the skin without applying any pressure at all. Shaving with the grain is often sufficient and renders a second shave in the opposite direction unnecessary. The skin should be stretched taut at all times.
