Round Two Muhle R41

ok - I bought the R41 head awhile back. Already had the handle from my R89. Anyway never could gel with the razor. Once in awhile got a very good shave but most other times shaves not so good - lots of tugging. So I sold the head in frustration. Well - still wondered what went wrong - still nagging feeling that I was missing something. Anyway just purchased a Rose Gold R41 and it is really a stunner. Been shaving with it and now getting good shaves. The R41 gives me the closest shave of any razor that I have tried. It really shines on getting a very close shave on the head. One of the keys is to have a really good prep using a quality soap/cream.

I have the R41 Grande and use it occasionally. I seem to get the best results with a sharp blade (Astra SP, Personna Lab Blue, or better) and a steep angle (handle closer to parallel with the skin). I also find that blade life is shorter with the R41 than with other DEs, and trying to push more shaves out of a blade leads to poor results and razor burn.
