Ape to Gentleman have long been fans of German shaving brand; MÜHLE. Hailing from Saxony in Germany the wet shaving experts have been owner-managed, now in their third generation, since 1945. The brand has earned a reputation for producing the very highest quality razors, shaving brushes and accessories.
The good news, and as of today, MÜHLE are bringing their Rasurkultur (Shaving Culture) to the UK. The launch of muehle-shaving.co.uk signifies MÜHLE’s intent to earn the right to become your weapon(s) of choice for that morning shave routine. Online you’ll be able to buy almost every MÜHLE product from their vast collection of products.
If you’re new to the brand, we recommend beginning with the R106 safety razor; made with a closed comb blade and a high-grade resin black handle. It’s the new, old method for achieving a better shave. If you can’t leave your Gillette cartridge alone then MÜHLE retail razors which fit the Gillette head, but have a significantly more handsome handle. Our pick here is the R76M3; a 3-blade razor, compatible with Gillette® Mach3® (still the best Gillette blade, in our opinion) with a high-grade resin handle and chrome-plated metal highlights.
Each are available with a debris clearing, stubble raising badger hair shaving brush for taking your shave to the next level. You can accessories further if you wish with a stand, shaving mug or bowl and a shaving mirror. And if you were beginning to think MÜHLE were hardware only, they do ‘software’ too, in the guise of shaving creams, aftershave balms and skincare. Again, our pick is the Aloe Vera collection.
It’s easy to see from muehle-shaving.co.uk and the images in this post that style and design are at the forefront of everything MÜHLE do. Attention to detail, German-engineering and precision are buzzwords banded around by MÜHLE, and in our experience of the brand- it’s all true. In fact, their UK launch is a timely reminded that shaving needn’t be a chore; with the right equipment it become a morning pleasure.
