    I've got both year's Mühle R41s so I can compare them. Are you looking for a comparison of aggressiveness? The 2011 R41 is more aggressive, but the PureMan prototype I tested is more aggressive than 90% of my collection. IMO, it's the perfect balance.

    If these are still available, I would love to test one. I have reviewed every one of the shave products I have purchased over the years, providing feedback to the sites where I buy. I am an experienced DE shaver, and I have owned and used most brands and styles that are currently available. And I am spending time at work getting my colleagues sucked into the pleasures of shaving the right way. Please let me know. Thanks.

    I did...

    The R41 is significantly more aggressive. If the R41 is a 9 1/2 on the aggressive scale, my Gillette SS a 2, my Futur set on 5-6 would be about a 9, and my Schick Krona is about a 1..... my test razor is maybe a 5. Neat thing is the handles are interchangeable between the R41 and the PureMan and I really like the handle on my PureMan.

    Tested my Razor out for several weeks now and have just sent my feedback off. From what I could see any issues I had with my Razor could certainly be ironed out by the time this razor goes into production.

    Sent my feedback today as well. I just wanted to publicly thank Pureman again for running this program. It was both generous and thoughtful and to me shows that they are intent on putting out great products. Good luck with this endeavor fellas!

    I have had the test razor for only 5 days so only 5 shaves with it. Not enough to formulate a conclusion. In fact today was the first top flight shave I have had with it so far. I've used a different blade in it each of the 5 days trying to find something that worked with the razor, my beard, and my tender skin. One of the blades I used a few days ago yielded a nice shave but today the bells went off and I think I have found what the razor likes when it comes to my preference in shaves. I want to go back to a 2nd shave on a couple of the blades I tried earlier and a 2nd shave on today's excellent performing blade.

    In my last conversation with Pureman they said mid March would be their timeline for everyone to comment.

    I will need at least 5-7 more shaves with this razor to come to a conclusion. This should still put me in under the middle of the month cut-off/deadline.

    Indeed this razor prefers one blade over another. I'll be submitting my evaluation in a day or 2.

    Default Sounding Excellent

    Just wanted to thank you gentlemen for providing some general bits of information. Sounding like a quality product. And given the way they are going about it, I expect Pureman to find a lot of success. I'm really looking forward to reading the detailed reviews when they are allowed for release.

    Sent my review into PureMan. All I can say is that anyone looking for a new razor in the forseeable future would be well advised to wait a little while until these are released. I doubt you will be disappointed.

    I just got my razor from the post office today! It arrived the day I left for vacation. It looks beautiful and now I'm home to use it! The feedback to PUREMAN will be coming in the near future.

    Default UPDATE on FREE DE Razors

    Hi gentleman

    Firstly apologies for delay in providing an update! Secondly thank you to everyone who has taken the time to post and a particular thank you to our testers - you guys were amazing with your feedback, the level of detail was exceptional and beyond our expectations. We now feel more confident with the future stages of development. All feedback is being reviewed and considered and implemented.

    If it is acceptable to our testers, once we have finalised the next round of development, we will send out the razors for further final feedback/analysis.

    Thanks once again.

    Kind regards
