I always assumed Tradere razors were pronounced Tray-der-ray with the emphasis on the first syllable.

I just clicked through their banner ad and was taken to their web page where I've learned the correct pronunciation is Trah-dare-ray, presumably with the emphasis on the second syllable.

Now I have to relearn this whole thing over again. That totally sucks.

But do you ever actually say it out loud? Many things I just read and have no idea how to pronounce them. Teiste was one of them Biggrin

As in lots of money. Not Mule, the animal.

I supposed Mew-Leh may be a better way to type the pronunciation.

I guess I just hear to many people say Mule. Smile

La Toja catches people out, as does Speick, but on the Italian front, so does Trastevere which a lot of people pronounce Trass Ta Ver Ay when it should be Tra Stay v' Ray

I speak German. It's pronounced Moo-leh.

However, there is a way to pronounce the long "O" sound that we native English speakers don't use. If you ever hear a German or Dutch person say it you will understand.

Umlaut, yes. Peculiar to Germans and Dutch. Muhle as in 'mill'? What then would a person who uses a Muhle brush be called? 'Muller' (miller) with the umluat over the 'u' I guess Smile As for triple-milled soaps....

Mühle - impossible to learn an English-American that don't speak German, I think Biggrin
It's not in any way MOO-LEH - in Danish we pronounce Y as Germans pronounce Ü, you have to know it, but listen to this Danish barber pronounce it on this video, 58 seconds in to the video you hear it (and also at 2.20 again), just before he pulls the Mühle 107 in white out Smile
