The Material – Karelian masur birch – PURIST Shaving Set Design Series
The particularly rare and beautiful wood of the masur birch comes from trees in the tree-line regions of the far north. Due to the harsh climatic conditions, the growth height is low and the wood acquires an exceptionally rich grain. The precious wood has therefore been traditionally harvested to create decorative objects.
The hand-picked square timbers are shaped by turning. Only the finest specimens are processed further, stabilized and coated in a special procedure. This makes the wood water resistant and hard-wearing. The high-gloss surface accentuates the individual veining of the grain.
Chrome, the final touch added to the masterpiece, demonstrates its best qualities: The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. When contrasted with this, the colours and shapes of other premium materials are shown to their very best advantage.
The Brushhead – Silvertip badger – PURIST Shaving Set Design Series
Among connoisseurs, silvertip badger is regarded as the pièce de résistance: Only the best, carefully selected badger hair is used for these genuinely handcrafted shaving brushes. The precious natural material is particularly soft and flexible.
The fine, conical tapering hairs possess the ability to retain a large amount of water and creates a dense, creamy lather. A pronounced sign of high quality of badger hair is the even black band running horizontally through the predominantly silvery gleaming hair. This premium product is manufactured using historical tools in a highly artisanal procedure mastered by only a few specialists worldwide.
The semi-circular shape of the brush head is produced by hand when binding the brush. The fine tips therefore do not require trimming and the natural softness of the hair is retained.
