I have both.
R41 GS is definitely more efficient than any of the Timeless. It's smooth as long as one respects 'zero pressure' and 'light touch'.
Timeless Slim is my favorite of that brand, is is more forgiving than the R41 GS in terms of pressure/touch, at the expense of overall efficiency.
I've now used my Asylum Rx razor 5 times; this is a wonderful SE razor, my favorite one so far.
Previously I owned Cobra, King Cobra, Mongoose.
Asylum Rx is relatively expensive, yes, however the solid design and precisely machined components make it a pleasure to hold and use.
Well done, Phil.
I'm looking for Ever-Ready/GEM Streamline razor, in excellent/mint condition. If someone has one that's just sitting around, help find it a new home!
Send me a PM if you have one available.
Gentlemen, I too received my shipment today from France.
I concur with Kevan ... this is one outstanding brush ... and the imitation horn is the most exquisite I've ever seen ... wow!
