A choice of dense headed hand bound shaving brushes of silvertip badger hair and turned, polished resin. Silvertip is collected only from around the neck area and is considered the finest commonly available hair from which shaving brushes can be made. Brushes of this type are set and tied in shape maintaining the natural taper of the individual hairs, rather than rough set and trimmed as is common for the cheaper grades. From the company of Hans Jürgen Müller of Stützengrün, Germany, who since 1945 have specialised in the manufacture of exceptional shaving brushes, and accessories. In two sizes a smaller white handled brush with a knot (the diameter of the tied end, the base of the head) of 21mm, and a larger black handled brush with a head of 25mm.
