I've been wet shaving for a couple of years now, going back and forth between straights, various vintage gillettes, and a merkur barber pole. I'm in the mood for something new and was thinking about going for a DE that's a little more "grown up" than the barber pole.
That being said, what I'm looking at is either a Muhle r41 or a Merkur 39C (slant on a barber pole handle). My beard is rather coarse but my skin can be sensitive at times. I normally shave every day or every other and prefer Astra blades. Love to hear your thoughts, opinions, experiences on these two razors.
