The set is made in the United Kingdom from steel, brass and chrome and is designed provide a great shave at the same time as looking great on the bathroom side.
The Norse thick handled double edged safety razor is a slightly heavier and longer razor which tends to be more popular with people with bigger hands. If shaving your head the longer handle can make it slightly harder to shave around the back of head but if shaving legs the longer handle makes it easier for the less flexible to reach the bottom of the legs
The shaving brush is NOT made from badger hair, it is made from a synthetic fibre which is made in the same way a hair grows. As a result the brush feels like a natural fibre but does not wear out in the same way a natural fibre does which means that instead of lasting only a few years it should last a lifetime. Using the synthetic fibre also ends a lot better for the badger!
