So I got my dad an R41 last week - he used to DE shave back in the day but most recently has gone the M3 way... I figured the R41 would be a nice leap to the future from the TTO Gillettes he used but he says it is noisy. Has anyone else experienced this? I've never shaved with the old American razors so have no reference point but how can a razor be noisy? I asked how and he said - as it shaves... Oh - and the blade was most likely the Crystal from Israel. Thanks in advance.
