I just completed my second shave with my new Muhle R41 Grande with the 2013 head using a Personna Red blade. Each shave was after a two day growth. Overall I was pleasantly surprised. I was very nervous about trying this razor due to it's aggressive reputation however it shaved really well for me. Like I said each shave was performed after a two day growth and I have a pretty course beard. I took my time and used very little pressure. I only had one small weeper after each shave in the same spot. I really like the razor and will use it especially if I have multiple day growth but I can't say if it is going to be an everyday razor. I need to shave everyday for my job and I personally don't think I need a razor this aggressive for everyday use. The quality is very nice and the price point isn't to bad either. I can say that it really helps reinforce proper form. I would recommend this razor to anyone who may have been holding off because of it's reputation or to someone who is looking for an aggressive razor. In my opinion it gave me a BBS shave after three passes and some minor touch ups. I am a fan but like I already said I don't think it will be an everyday razor for me, but then again I've learned to never say never. I enjoy collecting razors and in my short time doing so I have nine and this is a nice razor for a collection.
