Mühle – TRADITIONAL closed comb Safety razor with handle in gold plated metal
The R89 series has been some sort of all-time favourite for a long time. For generations, fine gentlemen from Oxford to Oklahoma use those handcrafted instruments to give their skin some special care and themselves a time out. The R89 safety razor was once a little revolution in the world of wet shaving. Today, that world can not be imagined without it anymore. A classic, one could say. But: At Mühle it is a miracle of perfection, ergonomics and beauty.
Nota bene: Suitable blades are, of course, available in specialist stores all over the world.
The razorhead – Classic razor blade
For generations, the safety razor has been regarded as a stylish classic which can even shave edges with precision. For many, it is the razor par excellence. Its styling is ideally suited to the design of the Mühle products.
Even if the open blade does demand a little respect at first, after a brief familiarisation period, and guided by a steady hand, it produces a very close shave and a lasting result. Unlike modern blade systems, the head of the safety razor does not move. The blades are replaced by unscrewing the cap.
How to use: Shaving with a safety razor requires a little practice. The skin also needs some time to grow accustomed to the shave. Getting started will be easier if you follow these instructions:
Moisten the beard area, preferably with warm water, and lather it thoroughly with a brush. The longer you lather the beard, the more easily and gently the hairs can be cut. If possible, use a highly effective moisturising shaving cream or soap as this will allow the blade to slide over the skin more easily. Make sure that the shaving head and handle are firmly attached to each other, but only tighten the screw to the extent that it can be unscrewed without too much effort.
This ensures that the blade rests at the correct angle. Now begin with the shave. Hold the safety razor at an obtuse angle (approx. 30°) to the skin. Start with the cheeks and allow the razor to slide over the skin, applying gentle pressure. Always shave in the direction of the beard growth (with the grain). When shaving the neck, stretch the skin tight with your free hand. Do not be discouraged by small cuts or grazes. Once you have familiarised yourself with the razor, they will rarely occur.
