Hi y'all! I had my first shave with the 2011 Mühle R41 this morning. I prefer a more aggressive razor most of the time, unless I am in a huge hurry that is. After all that I had heard, I finally had to have it so, I stalked my prey for a few weeks. Truthfully I probably gave a little too much for it but I just couldn't wait any longer and pulled the trigger!
I've been on a Pre de Provence kick for the last several days so I pulled it and a fresh IP out. I didn't go all out on the brush, just used my little Tweezerman. Most of the time I find I use it anyway just because it doesn't make much since to me to make some "uber" lather that you'll be rinsing 3/4ths of down the drain anyway. At times I pull one of the big brushes out but, not very much anymore.
When I loaded the blade, I was amazed at all of it's exposure. Incredible! I had a feeling it would be a good one just from that alone.

BBS in two easy and steady passes, it's like it was made for me.
