As part of our Classic Range, PURIST concentrates on the art of the essential; dispensing of all that is superfluous. This series is characterized by its gently rounded handles and a broadly shaped neck.
One of the most distinctive and rare materials, Karelian Masur Birch is grown in a small area of Karelia during the mid-winter season. Harvested only when the ground is frozen, the harsh climatic conditions result in the low growth height of the Masur Birch which, in turn, produces the wood’s characteristically rich grain.
Once picked, the square timbers are then shaped by turning. Only the finest quality Masur Birch is then further processed and stabilized during a special procedure. This procedure ensures the wood becomes hard-wearing and water-resistant.
The use of natural material ensures that each product is unique, the handle’s graining adding individual character to each brush, razor, and set.
A real investment piece, the R55SR supersedes the need for single-use plastic. A growing concern in the effects of disposable plastic makes the R55SR a great choice for the environmentally conscious, reducing both unnecessary plastic waste and unwelcome environmental impacts, without compromising on precision.

First and foremost, the Muhle R41gs stainless steel is beautiful. The first thing I did when I received this razor was just observe it for 15 minutes. It’s flawless. The craftsmanship and the finish on this razor is second to none, and I truly mean that. I’m still partial to another razor for sentimental reasons but this razor is truly one of the most (likely the most) beautiful I own and I can’t deny it. The size and weight of the stainless steel is awesome and truly a manly man sized razor. Now on to performance; I’ve shaved with this razor twice so far and it’s as much of a beast as everyone says. Paired with feather blades the Muhle R41gs stainless steel gives me the closest shave I’ve ever had. But be warned, this razor (and feather blade combo) is NOT for a beginner. A beginner is likely to turn away quickly from safety razor shaving if he starts out with this razor. Cheers.
