I own a number of DE razors. The R89 Grande has quickly become a favourite. A mild shaver, can be used daily without worrying about razor burn. Looks well built and beautifully balanced, I'm very happy with this purchase. Highly recommended.
In the past, I have used disposable razors which left me with razor burn due to beard hair thickness requiring multiple passes, straight razors require too much upkeep to remind sharp but first try with this razor worked like a charm with no razor burn.
I have used store bought razors all my life, then tried a Braun electric razor, and a Philips self-cleaning electric razor. None of these could stop the irritation on my neck, just above my Adam's apple. I always had to use a trimmer to get the rest. I have only tried this Muhle product once, resulting in no irritation around the neck area. It did take a few strokes to get used to it. The longer handle definitely helps! You may be hesitant but you will not be disappointed.
