TRADITIONAL - Safety razor TWIST from MÜHLE, open comb, handle material chrome-plated metal
- Safety razor – open comb
- Handles made of metal with chrome-plated metal highlights
The Material - Chrome
Without chrome the world would forfeit a lot of its lustre. In the finish used for our wet shaving accessories it demonstrates its best qualities: The material is corrosion-resistant, very long-lasting and has a luxurious, alluring lustre. When contrasted with this, the colours and shapes of other premium materials are shown to their very best advantage.
The new MÜHLE safety razor R41 TWIST with precision mechanics and highly functional design: The cap of the razor can be released with a simple twist of the small wheel at the end of the handle. The open tooth comb remains firmly attached to the handle. Used blades can then be removed safely and replaced with new ones.
The R41 TWIST will be favored by all wet shavers who prefer the slightly heavier model and a vigorous safety razor. This model also fits our RHM SR and RHM SR SET and accepts our MÜHLE K1 safety razor blades.
The Razorhead - open comb
The safety razor with open tooth comb was developed specially for practised wet shavers. Due to the principle of its construction, which features a special blade angle, the model allows a vigorous, very direct shaving technique.
As on safety razors with closed combs, the blade is held in place by the curvature of the cap. The combination of open tooth comb and a gap behind the foam edge ensures that the edge is kept free of stubble and residues. This innovative design 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 very sharp blade, while others can profit more from gentler blades.
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.
The safety razor with its toothed foam edge is predestined for men with a denser, stronger beard growth or for those who prefer to sport three-day stubble. The model variants include handles made of white and black high-grade resin or with chrome-plated chasing.
Dimension: 41 mm x 107 mm

We recommend our rust-proof MÜHLE razor blades which are the perfect match for our safety razors.
The basic DE wet shaving principles are essential when using this excellent razor. The Muhle R41 Twist is designed to be more aggressive in its performance and so good beard preparation before shaving is a must. Utilise a milder DE blade in the razor when starting out. From then on it is just a case of letting the excellent weight of the razor do the work, the temptation to apply any pressure should be avoided, upon achieving the correct shave angle it is just a case of guiding the razor on the face for great results.
The light Knurling on the handle does require the user to exercise a degree of care whilst shaving but this is the only minor consideration for what has proved to be an excellent purchase.
