I recently purchased a new Muhle R89. I will say that I am pleased with the construction and finish quality. I had read here on B&B and on other forums, that this razor is not considered very aggressive. But my experience with this razor has not matched that description. This razor seems much more aggressive than the Slim Adjustable, or the Merkur Progress when set at the highest settings. Anyone else have that experience? Any chance I got an older version? Any way to tell the difference?
