How do they compare? Firstly a bit of an intro just signed up this is my first post. I am a 22 year old male. Have shaved with disposable razors, double bladed Gillette, gillette vibrator, mach 3, Schick quattro titanium etc Never really found the love for shaving, never something i looked forward to or enjoyed doing. I am on my last schick blade and decided to try safety razors. I cannot wait to start. I have even started using the single trimmer blade on the back of my Schick as practice. I *think* my skin is somewhat sensitive as shaving with cartridge razors often meant wiping the blood away from under my chin afterwards. I also think my beard hair is slightly coarse. I am the sort of person who researches things thoroughly before they buy, I am also a bit of a tight a*se. Needless to say I have done allot of googling about safety razors. I was looking at the feather popular but saw comments of people referring to it as a travel razor so decided it was not a good long term solution. (I buy things once and do it properly). Anyway to the point.. I am considering the muhle r89. But don't know whether to get the r89 or the r89 grande, how do they compare? ##The R89 Grande is simply an extra long handled version of Mühle's famed R89, with a total length of 107mm compared to the R89's 95mm and weight of 80g versus the R89's 66g. Precision manufactured in Germany. this is what it says on the site, but what do you recommend, what are the real 'in practice' differences rather than factual differences ?
