Details

The open comb DE safety razor is intended for experienced wet shavers. This razor may also be preferred by men with a denser, stronger beard growth or those who, between shaves, like to sport designer stubble as it delivers a more aggressive and very close shave
The safety razor with an open tooth comb is for well-practised wet shavers; the construction, which features a special blade angle, allows vigorous, very direct shaving technique (some may call it aggressive).
With closed comb safety razors the curved blade is exposed and clamped in place by the curvature of the top part of the head. The open comb razor ensures that, during the shave, cut stubble and shaving lather clear away thus the cutting edge is kept free of residues and more exposed. This also makes subsequent cleaning easier.

During 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 or tight at all times.

Extremely close shave

A fantastic razor for the experienced DE shaver. Its closest shave I have ever experienced. Superb design and finish. I will be adding a solid stainless steel handle to give it more heft.

Great product
Great product, not your everyday razor but great if you haven't shaved for a few days because it'll come right off no matter what blade you use. Definitely an investment, its not too expensive but if you don't have to shave everyday this is the razor for you, its the closest shave you'll get without using a straight razor.

Made a good choice with this beast, great results.
A cracking piece of hardware. Probably the closest shave since a cut throat job i had in Cyprus 10 years ago.

Don’t be intimidated
I’ve been wet shaving for about 9 months and wanted to try a new razor. This is a beauty. Lovely weight and feel in the hand. I’ve got coarse hair but sensitive skin so finding the right balance is key for me. This is aggressive but I feel in control. I use a Gillette 7 o’clock blade and have had good results.

Can't wait to use it again
I'm a open comb fan . Much better than a close comb this razor ticks all the boxes for me mid aggression but used with a right blade it's fantastic

La bestia fue domada rápidamente.
Excelente máquina, le tenía mucho respeto al principio, pero me di cuenta que "la bestia" no es tan brava si tienes experiencia con el afeitado (en general no me costo desde la primera vez que usé afeitadora de doble hoja). Como con cualquier máquina clásica, hay que tener cuidado con la presión. Buen trabajo, es una hermosa herramienta.

The new and improved R41 head design
The R41 has got a great reputation amongst those weshavers as being one of the most aggressive razors and ideal for those who have thick or coarse stubble, this new improvement for 2020 is no exception. Don’t let the lack of blade exporsure fool you, despite this improvement put you off, it adds to the comfort for an strong and efficient shave. If you have an existing R41 this is a whole other animal and definitely worth the investment when paired with a feather for a BBS shave.

decent/solid
quality item with a steady weight to it, the only problem is that the grip is not great, if this razor had the same handle as the murker 34 c it would be perfect , aggressive shave , great if you like to actually feel the razor on your skin.

Amazing
Bought this as an experiment in shaving minimalism, an attempt to get the maximum result for the minimum of effort. Success! A single pass with no clean up gives me as good a shave as I need. And if I want more, a quick, light clean up takes me as far as I ever want to go.

My other razor is a DE89. Also a great razor in a very different way. Both get you from A to B. They just take different routes to get you there.

Don't be put off by the scare stories about the R41. A bit of common sense and a light touch is all you need.

Great shave, but slippery handle
Been wanting a replacement for my old Gilettes old type open comb for a while. Decided on this since it got good reviews and also are an open comb type- Not disappointed - it shaves great! The only gripe I have is about the grip, it tends to get slippery with wet fingers, but it can be fixed by buying a handle firm somewhere else, or as I did - slide on a 12mm diameter shrink tube! The one I used slid on and were tight enough without me having to shrink it. Despite this i don't hesitate to recommend it, just for the great have I get.

Muhle R41 Open Combe Razor
Excellent razor. Not quite the aggressive monster that people make it out to be but very very close shave. This is a perfect razor once you get behind the technique. Don’t be put off by nicks and cuts to begin with. I love this razor and won’t be looking anywhere else in my shaving journey with DE Ioen Combe razors.

Muhle R41 Open comb
Recently I first time used Muhle R41.
I am thrilled by his strength shaving.
Shaving is smooth and pleasant.
I do not recommend it for beginners because of its "aggression".
