The leather case is made up and finished by a regional manufacturer in Germany. The untreated natural cowhide leather is tanned using a special vegetable method. The natural material is long-lasting and durable and develops an individual patina in the course of its use: the traces of the owner, his travels and experiences.
This model is delivered with a exclusive travel shaving brush with Silvertip Fibre®© brushhead (ringsize 21 mm) and a 5-blade Gillette® Fusion™ razor with chromed metal-parts.
The Material - Chrome
The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre.
The brush head - Silvertip Fibre®
Synthetically produced premium quality whose material characteristics are analogous to those of the precious natural hair, silvertip badger. The majority of the users even say that this quality actually provides better performance characteristics than the natural hair.
'Silvertip Fibre®' is very soft at its fine tips, but somewhat more stable than natural hair in the middle section. These characteristics produce a pleasant, soft sensation on the skin when the lather is applied, without having to forgo the desired firmness of the hairs in the lathering process. In daily use, the manually processed fibres are less sensitive than natural hair as they dry more quickly and are resistant to shaving soaps and creams.
The completely vegan fibres are also somewhat easier to use than natural hair as they produce a particularly creamy and thick lather from a small amount of shaving soap or cream, which is used much more sparingly as a result.
The razor head - Gillette® Fusion™
The latest shaving system from Gillette® embraces five blades positioned one above the other as well as a precision edging blade located on the back of the cartridge. This design ensures a very close and gentle shave. Its simple and safe handling is ideal even for newcomers. The blades are available from retailers everywhere.
The blade guard made of plastic protects the blade and prevents from cuts when storing the safety razor or while traveling.
Tips for use and care:
The leather for this case is tanned in Germany and painstakingly processed into a high-quality product in order to retain its natural characteristics. Slight variations in the colouring and small scars are features of the natural material. We recommend applying a thin layer of care cream or grease for untreated leathers and gently polishing the case with a soft cloth.
The case fastener on the outside becomes more supple with time. Slide the fastening button through the hole by pressing the edge of the hole with two fingers.
