Two pass - WTG & ATG

Impression

To be absolutely frank, I found this a bit tough. My first run with the R41 was with a Feather and I absolutely loved it! I think I have a second perfect combination there - my first being the Merkur 23C with a SuperMax Blue Diamond.

Still, two passes … can't complain at that. The R41 mowed through three days of growth, not silently nor effortlessly this time, but did.

No issues, although I think the blade will be demoted to use in a milder razor.
