Product Description

Traditional shaving razor from MÜHLE comes with high-quality chrome-plating with fine chasing or combined with stylish high-grade resin.

This razor has a high-grade resin handle and R41 open comb head.

Chrome – Is the finish used for our wet shaving accessories. The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring luster.

High-grade resin – Is a high-quality synthetic material, the surface of which is processed and refined separately. The material is ideal for exclusive accessories and writing implements because it facilitates a broad spectrum of modern and classical designs in many attractive colours.

The safety razor has an open tooth comb and  has been developed specially for experienced wet shavers. This razor represents an 8 out of 10 in terms of aggressiveness. Due to the principle of its construction, which features a special blade angle, the new model allows a vigorous, very direct shaving technique. The curved blade is exposed and clamped in place by the curvature of the cap. The open tooth comb and a gap behind the foam edge ensure that stubble and foam are transported away during the shave. This means that the edge is kept free of residues. All in all an innovative design which also makes subsequent cleaning easier.

The shaving result is dependent on the factors beard growth, the density and length of the beard hair, and how these interact with the blade and safety razor. Some will achieve optimal results with a Feather blade, while others can profit more from gentler blades such as Derby, Merkur or Personna. When shaving, the safety razor should at first be drawn across the skin without applying any pressure at all. Shaving with the grain is often sufficient and renders a second shave in the opposite direction unnecessary. The skin should be stretched taut at all times.

This safety razor is intended for men with a denser, stronger beard growth or for those prefer to sport three-day stubble.

    :

    nice well machined piece of equipment. my first muhle purchase. first shave I used a derby premium. switched to feathers after that. for me they are smooth.

    this is an aggressive razor but not as bad as the legendary descriptions that accompany it. 30 degrees okay. steep angle works really well and efficient. riding the cap a breeze and efficient as expected. somewhere before or after 30 degrees….it will become harsh and feels like it would like to blade hop. machining and plating were spotless with no tooling or mfg marks. handle is beautiful and solid resin. handle is light making this particular model head heavy. I will use this as a daily driver due to getting some very smooth shaves out of it.

    reason: 1 AGT, 1 XTG, + some cleanup/ buffing for me.

    prior to this I used the Merkur 41c 1904 OC which is a lovely razor.

    I would consider fit and finish on par with the edwin jagger de89
