am i right in thinking the muhle r41 comes in both closed and open comb?

if so, id assume the open comb would be more aggressive, right?

No you are not right. R41's come in two variations. Open comb or........open comb.

Yes, they are aggressive but like every other aggressive razor only as much as the user allows.

I don't know where this idea comes from that all OC razors are aggressive. I can think of a few which are little fairies compared to their closed brethern

yea i hear you, tbh imo i do think theres a certain degree of scaremongering within the wet shaving community as it like ohh dont get a feather too sharp for newbie etc etc but to me i say go all in, and learn as you go along tbh

I know they get classified as Open Comb, but I don’t get it. To me, they’re closed comb. There’s no gap between the teeth. It is a unique comb variation though. You’re right about the relationship between open comb and ‘aggression’. For me, it’s blade gap/exposure that determines the assertiveness of the cutlery. Hence Slim Adjustables/Fatboys etc. on settings 1-9. The Merkur 1904 is an OC and it’s milder than a mild thing.

Aggressive you say? This one looks like a beauty in that department - Stirling hyper aggressive head.


I wouldn’t mind giving it a try myself. Looks like if it bites, it could take a chunk out of your face without much problem
