SOTD 7 August 2015
Today I’m starting my day with the best DE around the block ;
#1 DE open comb: Muhle R41
This is IMO not only the best open comb around (sorry Fatip but…) but one of the best modern shaving machines.
It’s well made, excellent fit and finish, perfectly balanced. My version is the Rose Gold: simply stunning. Everything shines and will shine for a one time.
Its aggressiveness it’s coped with an effective shaving. It’s usually enough two passes to have a quite close shave. Needing to say that probably it’s not for the novice users or for daily use for most people. Or for normal not thick beard like mine (it’s just an overkill…) but it’s enjoyable,always.
Probably also better to select a mild blade.
Coupling today with the best Italian Soap that raises the perfection: Saponificio Varesino Felce Aromatica. Where everything meets the excellence in lathering, comfort and protection. Adding know the luxury of a Silvertip Omega brushes. What a fantastic shave!!
