Wow where is the quality control. Also makes you wonder how often this happens.FTFY
My Fatip is a work of art. My R41 on the other hand...
The comb is bowed outwards. Look at the bottoms of the center 4 teeth.

Neither side of the base is square.

The top of the comb is the same as the base of the comb. The razor will rock across the 4 center teeth.

Someone once blamed me for buying an R41 clone base and thats why its poorly cast. That however, wasnt the case. It came directly from Muhle.

Sure it has great plating but even the plating thickness could be measured in thousands of an inch, not microns. Plating that thick can hide a lot.
Thats a problem with cast parts, not only razors but any cast parts. The pieces coming out of the molds are only as good as the molds themselves and, molds wear.
