    Muhle is launching a LE R41 Stainless Steel

    Funny you should notice this. I noticed the same thing not with the two razors that you referenced but with a Muhle R89 razor and the Edwin Jagger DE89. The Jagger is much looser in the the cover whereas the Muhle has a nice snug fit. I chalked it up to thicker chrome plating on the Muhle.

    No.88 Redux

    I had to LOL at this. They actually believe they've improved the spectacular Valobra by making it far more moisturizing. I'll take the old formula please. If I feel less moisturized, it's a risk I'm willing to take. So glad I hoarded both varieties of the pre moisturized pucks several years...

    Any Americans buy from Men's Room Barbershop?

    I've bought hundreds of Kai DE blades from them over the last 5 years. Exceptional vendor and fast shipping. I believe also they're a sponsor vendor here.

    Fatip Il Piccolo lo Storto Testina Classica impression after the first use.

    I’ve found with Fatip as well as the R41 one needs to be careful to make sure the entire edge of the baseplate is uniformly against the skin by slightly rotating the handle as the razor passes along the contours of the skin surface and particularly when you switch to different sides of your...

    The Desert Island

    It would have to be the Feather ASD2. Lots of time available for achieving a close shave and a low risk of acquiring an infection due to a cut while deserted and waiting for the Uber Eats.

    Plisson Ruthenium Fatip Lottery

    Anyone notice this new beauty? The dark gray Ruthenium looks very cool. It’s a bad pic on the site but an image search for Ruthenium plated jewelry yields really beautiful items. I’m tempted but am worried about getting another quirky Fatip supplied specimen. Maybe the next time they offer a 20%...

    Buyer Beware - Amazon

    Coming up with a good title - succinct yet informative - is to me the most important part of a new thread in terms of getting folks to click. I wasn’t misled, but was curious.

    Muhle R89 Twist

    I love both my R89 and R41 twists. Something about the knurled twist knob just sings to me.

    Muhle is launching a LE R41 Stainless Steel

    An all brass R41 Grande with the famous Muehle chrome plating would’ve been just as desirable as the SS model, if not even more so if priced less than $100 USD. That I would have jumped on immediately. Stainless is so overdone and boring now.

    Muhle is launching a LE R41 Stainless Steel

    Hopefully it's a Limited Edition, but not Limited Production. You would think after investing all of the hard and soft costs to bring this to market, they would want to keep it in production to recoup their costs and be profitable.

    Buyer Beware - Amazon

    The response from Mary is a standard auto reply. From my previous communications with Alrossa, after the standard “Mary” reply Mark Sanders, the owner personally replied to a question that I had. We then continued discussing various Simpsons models that he was considering to import, one of which...

    Muhle is launching a LE R41 Stainless Steel

    I like the R41. Mine's the Twist variety. This looks interesting and tempting. But I'm taking a wait and see approach as I'm not one to be an early adopter. Let's see what the reviews will be once it's out and being used.

    Who hand strops DE blades?

    I tried it a few times, but then read something from official Feather documentation that rubbing the edge isn't recommended as it may remove any special coatings. Now I just rinse and shake dry.

    Simpson Questions

    your message is exceedingly polite and well composed. The reply seems fine as it addresses the concern very directly and is straight forward. I have no doubt Simpsons appreciates your business and would like to continue to earn it :)

    Brushes Raise the Stubble - I disagree

    excellent and timely post. I've been considering this very concept recently and have come to the conclusion that shaving brushes may in fact play a role for the hairs to elevate by depositing materials, in our case water, soap, microscopic air bubbles, at the base of the hair. I also think the...

    What was Simpson thinking?!

    Haha, well they’ve been doing it for about a 100 years. One of these days they’ll get it right! All kidding aside, I’m a huge fan of Simpsons bigger brushes, particularly their Super 3 band hair in the Chubbies.

    Simpson, I hate you #SBAD #BAD #MAD

    can't go wrong with a CH1S. I bought one and a spare right around the vulfix acquisition and it's a solid, dense but super luxurious little guy. The more I use the dense chubbies with the 3 band super hair, the more I appreciate just how "super" this hair really is. At $129 from 'rossa it's a no...
