General Information

Wet shaving – that is our area of expertise, the subject, we are well versed in. Since 1980, we have been producing exquisite accessories for wet shaving in our own manufacturing facilities. Our products are exclusively sold by specialized merchants that emphasize professional advice and have a sure feeling for exceptional quality. Frequently, we meet requests for individualized, custom-made articles like shaving kits made from solid gold. But we do not only know how to fabricate first-class razors and shaving brushes – we also supply shaving soap and aftershave balm of the same high quality. We create convenient products that you will love to look at and use day after day.


Werner Pils founded the company as a sole proprietorship in Stuttgart in 1980. He started to design and manufacture high quality shaving accessories, since none of the products available on the market satisfied his requirements. Thanks to his many years of experience as the sales director of a leading cosmetics group, he had a well-founded market knowledge to rely on. His hand-made shaving utensils soon enjoyed great popularity. Today, PILS products rank among the best in the world. In 2003, Werner Pils retired from business and handed PILS GmbH over to his successor, Micha Birkhofer, who continues the prosperous business.



We aim to create products that are not only aesthetic but also durable and suitable for daily use. Therefore, we do not compromise in the selection of raw materials; we manufacture at the highest quality standards, design our products with classic, timeless elegance and constantly test them for their functionality.


As a manufacturer, we feel obliged to protect our environmental resources, and we expect the same commitment from our suppliers. We avoid unnecessarily long transport routes, reuse transport packaging several times and employ outer packaging made from recycled materials. We receive electricity exclusively from renewable energy sources and pay attention to sustainability when choosing our partners. Our website, for example, is hosted by a service provider that relies solely on green electricity.


We care for people. Without our customers, our reliable business partners and our employees, we could not exist. Respectful interaction is one of our core standards, and we value any suggestions or criticism as a chance for continual improvement.
