Muhle R41 GRANDE Double Edge Safety Razor

20 Reviews

The Muhle R41 GRANDE Double Edge Safety Razor is the pinnacle of shaving; and for those who have been on the hunt for a great option for their next wet shaving razor, it could be just what they need. It could also be a great first option for those who are making the transition from electronics or disposables to the old school blades.

Getting a good shave is not always easy unless you are using the right tools. Disposables are certainly not the right tools. Even though you can replace the blades in these safety models, those blades are of a much higher quality than those little yellow ones that don't do much more than irritate your face. This model comes with a single blade, as well as a short...

After 15 years of jobs requiring I be clean shaven everyday, I had become dissatisfied with cartridge razor and electrics. I’ve dabbled in straights and shavettes, and tried a few other DE razors. Now, I’m done. This is what I’ve been looking for. Yes, it is “aggressive”, and you will feel this razor on your skin. I absolutely recommend a quality blade. I prefer a Feather. It’s hefty, so you need little to no pressure. Aesthetically, it’s a fine looking tool. If I had any complaint, it would be the knurling. There is very little grip. Don’t be scared of this razor, I use it daily and I am very impressed with the close shaves I get. Of course, YMMV.

Closest shave. Requires care.

I worked my way up to this bad boy. I have sort of a strange shaving routine. I do the first pass with the mercury 34c and a feather blade. When I used the Muhle first I was getting some unpleasant tugging and I already had the merkur. For the second pass and touch up I use the muhle with a persona blade. This guy will give you as close a shave as you could off. If anything I have to be careful to not shave too close on my neck to avoid bad razor burn. The trick with this guy is to barely hold on to the handle and let the razor glide. Beware those who like to scrape!! You will pay for your hubris!! As to value, this guy is high performance but you pay for it. It's sort of for the shaving hobbyist. The merkur 37c will give a very good shave and is cheaper.

Refined aggressiveness

This razor gets a lot of press for being very aggressive. It is true, that I would not recommend this razor to an inexperienced shaver. This razor demands that you respect the angle in which you were cutting, but it also gives the closest shave that I've ever had. The razor is quite beautiful, and all the details are well taken care of. The name of the game with this razor is to take it slow and in sure that you have very sharp blades (I mean, ensure they've not started to wear down at all). The razor is a once a week one for me, it quite literally makes my face hairless and the next day there is not enough to shave. All of this in a very refined shaving experience.

Too aggressive

I used a murker slant for 15 years and this is much harder to use. If you can shave with ZERO pressure it is ok. I also bought the 89 and love the looks of it but it is slightly too unaggressive. Best shave for money is the 23C however every now and then I try the 41. just difficult to use. 89 couldn't be any easier..
