bm1 is simply made for handles of exquisite shaving tools: first of all, it offers an extraordinarily pleasant tactile experience. bm1 is firm, but at the same time feels soft to touch. It is completely non-slip even in wet conditions, and it rests in the hand beautifully.
The integral components of birch tree bark make bm1 particularly moisture-resistant (more about this in Specifications). The wax and the balsam oils, as well as extremely low cellulose content, effectively prevent moisture absorption. Other components such as suberin and betulin have anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
