    After 11 straight days shaving with the Rockwell 6s using plate 4 it was time to switch things up this morning. I bought my R41 over a year ago and used it twice, but to me it wasn't one of those DE's I would want to use trying to get out the door in a hurry on a work morning.

    So this morning I had time. I remember the first time I used the R41 I was afraid of it, having read stories on the internet of people's experience ranging from "best razor I've ever used" to "so aggressive it shaved both sides of my face at the same time" (not a direct quote :))

    All I can say is there is no reason to fear the mighty R41. If you have any degree of experience with highly efficient razors, your technique will be honed to a degree that the R41 will give an amazingly close and smooth shave. This shave was with the items pictured, including a brand new Perma-Sharp (one of the best blades I've ever used).

    I never used the 2011 R41 but I understand that it is regarded as notably more aggressive than the 2013 model. If so, I'm good with the 2013. Two passes with a small amount of touch up and ready to face the day with an awesome shave :)

    The original is that cheap? I did not know, I gathered they're kinda rare, replaced with an updated version?

    That's what I did, bought the head only. Not a bad price at all.

    I think the 2011 is the original one, the ‘13 is the updated/less aggressive version that is currently sold
