What Your Father Didn't Teach You About Shaving (And Grooming)

The traditional safety razor with replaceable blade is regarded by many as the first mechanical razor for self-shaving. At MÜHLE it is more: a minor miracle of precision, ergonomics and beauty, created for ambitious wet shavers. Our design combines high-quality metal-working (chrome-plating) with an extremely fine engraved finish.

Great razor

If I could award half stars I would give this razor 4.5 out of 5. It is a really good, heavy razor and the weight makes shaving really smooth, with far fewer strokes needed. The only very small downside is that the handle is quite smooth and would be improved by a slightly more gnurled grip. It can sometimes feel a little slippery in the hand until you get used to it

Great shave

First safety razor after years of disposables. The shave was best ever. Easy shaving and smooth finish. The razors weight and balance are excellent and the grip perfect for secure handling. Used muhle blade but looking forward to trying others as well

I find that the Mühle razor feels like an I-beam in the hand. Yes, it's that solid and rigid, but it's also as light as a feather, which gives it a curious quality, sort of like a fine-artist's paint brush that can also hammer nails. The blade is rigidly anchored into the Mühle's head and feels like it's held in a precision vice when it torqued into place. This razor makes shaving an exercise in one-handed virtuosity, without a doubt, sort of like driving a Ferrari TdF makes you a better driver (not that I'd know that literally from experience, mind you). This is a highly recommended tool for the daily washroom routine. Buy one, now; you won't regret it.

Grande or the regular? This!

The grande is taller. The regular is not. So which one? The argument for the grande is that the extra weight of the handle benefits the shaving. You'll hear a lot of experts on youtube say "let the weight of the razor do the shaving". So there... it helps. A nitpick for the eye watering state of the art Rex Ambassador by Geofatboy (youtube) was that the handle could be longer. There you have it, a longer handle makes sense. Also if you're coming from Gillette cartridge shaving, the handle size will be familiar.

The head is the same as the regular, which results in a mild, forgiving shave. Depending on your face/beard, this could very well be the last razor you need. I suggest trying a few blades to go with it. My choice was Astra, Nacet, PermaSharp and Personna (in order of sharpness). Kit glamour shot follows.

Excellent Buy

I love the R89 Grande. It shaves as described, and the service from Fine shave is exceptional.

Great razor

This is my second safety razor and a step up from my first one. I find the longer handle and the heavier weight offers much better control as I shave. The build quality and attention to detail is exceptional. Definitely worth the investment

Peter K. (Auckland, New Zealand)

Took a few days to get used to, but after switching from a multiblade razor I find the Muhle R89 gives a much closer shave. The weight and balance are really good. Well worth the small investment.
