    I say hooey! IMO...if you use a light touch a good blade and the proper angle the R41 is one of the finest shavers ever built.....it gives as good as a shave as if I go to my barber and get a straight shave....I use my R41 at LEAST 4 days a week....

    I seriously don't understand all the horror stories.....either people are using them on crack, or blindfolded! LOL....take your time it will treat you right!!

    I agree, any razor with a blade in it can bite you,hell I wasn't paying attention once and I got a weeper from a Feather AS-D1,just take your time with the r41 and you'll get a great shave.

    I think you will be ok with it. I like the R41 too, it rides my face better than any other razor so far.

    Rock on!

    What is funny is that I can use the R41, or the Fatip...or really any OC and get a great shave....no weepers, smooth and comfortable....BUT you put a tech in my hand....forget it!!

    I tried a Tech for Tech Tuesday...( I do try to support all of our members with great ideas)...and got a few weeprs!! Why??? My technique went to shite! I wasn't getting the stubble removal I am so use to in a more efficient razor and guess what....I applied pressure...I forgot shaving 101!

    This is why I say the R41 is a good beginner razor...they can learn proper technique from day one....and if they listen to the members of this board..( like in this thread and the R41 combined thread) they can have a positive experience with the R41.

    The thing with the R41 is that if your technique is poor, it's unforgiving and you can have a bad time with it, because it really does expose quite a lot of blade.

    But if you're careful with the angle (most people seem to like the blade at a narrow angle to the face), and you're light with your technique, it shouldn't be a problem at all. If you can wield SEs well, I reckon you should be fine with an R41.

    If you get one, you could try what I did for my first shave with mine, and put a Feather in it - it'll focus your mind

    True! However, the R41 gives great feedback allowing for the user to make adjustments on the fly. As I use the R41 the sound and feel of the razor helps to find the “sweet spot”. The R41 is easy to use and gives a great shave. This is coming from a DE new guy that could not get a good shave from a cart sytem.

    Have a great shave!

    Same here but not for the same reasons. My EJ98 is a great trainer DE razor and I will always use it but I seem to add too much preasure when shaving to achieve the same results as the R41 and some times, a little irritation (and nicks) occurs.
