Handcrafted in Germany, the Vivo series is a modern take on a classic design. This set contains a safety razor featuring a closed comb razor head, and a Pure Badger shaving brush, all presented on a metal chrome-plated stand, complete with soap dish. Both the razor and brush have Plum wood handles with chrome plated highlights. The classic, closed comb razor shave edges with precision and allow a gentler shaving technique. The brush head is made of pure badger. Among the natural hair types, pure badger is the basic quality. The hairs are somewhat thicker, but still softer and more flexible than bristles. Recommended for those who would like a badger brush with a slightly stronger massaging effect.
