I was introduced to the Old School of wet shaving by KLF . Becuase of him I now own a Muhle R89 and I had my first shave with this incredible razor last night ! I loaded it with a Derby blade as my skin is a little bit sensitive and this is a very mild blade. The result was very smooth and comfortable shave - no nicks or cuts or any irritation at all ! I Love it. I'm going to try some other blades as I also got a DE Blade Sample Pack.
