Ein Deutsch rasieren

with 5 comments

SOTD 31 May 2013

All German today: the Mühle silvertip badger brush did a fine job making a truly terrific lather from Tabula Rasa Patchouli shaving cream—and I do like the fragrance.

The Mühle 2013 R41, unlike the 2011 R41, is not bad for me at all. The 2011 model was so harsh that I simply could not use it. Those who like it use a very shallow angle. While this new one, a 2013 model, is not so harsh and provided a smooth shave with no nicks or burn, I still would not call it a comfortable razor, but those who want an open-comb razor that rewards skill with efficiency will probably like it. The razor head is slightly wider so that very little of the blade’s ends are exposed, a nice touch.

The blade today was a Trig, and in 3 passes I had a BBS shave. A good splash of Alt-Innsbruck and the week draws to a close.

  3. I do not speak Italian, but if Google Translate is working, I can respond: the razor in the photo is the new 2013 R41, which I ordered direct from Mühle to be sure I got the most recent model. It is NOT the 2011 model, which I’ve used and found too harsh for me.

  4. Mr. LeisureGuy I will not insist it while to me the 2011 Muhle R 41 has 8 teeth like in the picture. while the Muhle R41 2013 9 teeth ……. the handle is different

  5. Aha. Okay, I understand now. I thought I did get the new one, and I’m surprised this one is more comfortable than the 2011 I used before. Of course, I have continued shaving since then and perhaps my technique is better. Now to look for a 9-tooth R41.

    You would think they could just use a different model number for different models.
