I decided to write this post for those who may be considering buying/trying a Muhle R41 razor. First a little background: Started traditional shaving about 3 months ago. I always thought I had sensitive skin, but I'm able to do daily 3 pass shaves, with the last one ATG, so maybe my skin is not that sensitive after all. I'm now convinced that cartridges were responsible for my "sensitive skin". I was curious and at the same time scared of the R41. Some people hate it, while others say they use it as their daily driver. So today I shaved with it for the first time, and I have to say that I absolutely love this thing! Since it was my first time using this razor, I only did 2 passes, skipping the ATG pass. And even so, I got a super close shave, with no irritation, and only one minor nick. I just want to thank everyone who records youtube videos, and those that post here because there's no way I would have improved my technique this much in 3 months without you guys. And to those who are on the fence about an R41, I'd so go for it!
