This morning I fired up my new Muhle R41 for its maiden shave. I received the razor, along with the B&B Essential Boar, yesterday. I used TOOBS Coconut Shave Cream and went for a 3-pass shave. Got one bleeder on my neck in my "problem area" on the first pass but nothing further in the next two passes. This is honestly the closest shave I have ever had (especially on my neck). I used the included blade (Derby) that came with the R41. Those of you that are commonly using the R41 - can you use it everyday? If so are you doing three full passes each day? Also, concerning blade angle, I had the handle pretty well towards the wall at maybe a 25% angle. This seemed to work best for me but I need to experiment with different angles. I've seen some using this razor at a pretty steep angle with the handle pointing almost straight down - I may try this next time. I have the rosegold R41 and it is really beautiful. I love the handle on it and the grip it provides.
