This is my second stab at getting to know the R41. I tried one two years ago, didn't get along with it and eventually PIFed it. For some reason I got a hankering to give it another try. I'm going to give it a 30 shave trial and see what happens.
I've used an R41 for the past five years or so; I find it blazingly efficient, but very blade sensitive. The best blades for me for most of those five years (which is always subject to change, mind you) have been Astra greens. Once kitted with a blade that works for one's beard, the beast settles down and behaves admirably.
Again with the Apollo, but substituting the top cap from the Ikon Tech increases exposure, and an aluminum handle yields perfect balance. Yeah baby.

Compré las cuchillas Kai en su versión más suave pensando que atenuaría un poco la agresividad de la Asylum. Así ha sido, aunque no se puede dejar de poner atención porque la Asylum no perdona.
