Incredible razor for coarse beards! Very easy to use and gives a very close shave! I started shaving with a safety razor 4 weeks ago. Ive always had to use clippers on my beard because of irritation from cartridge razors, but i never get a close shave with clippers. So i researched other options and found single DE blade razors as a solution to many with my shaving problems. I picked up a starter DE razor from walmart i think it was Van der haggen and started with that. After 2 weeks i out grew it and needed something more aggressive. Research pointed to the Muhle R41. Ive been shaving with it, pairing it with Feather blades, for the last week and a half and love it!
