It appears that the handle unscrews the head from the bottom like the Merkur HD,etc.

Money's on TTO. But which model Muhle, head-wise? I'd love it if it were an R41...

Interesting whatever it turns out to be. Unfortunately it still has the same old handle which I don't care for on my Muhle R41, not grippy enough.

I think it's a two-piece spindle-type. Not adjustable and not TTO.

EDIT: If it is a spindle-type 2-piece, then the handle weight would go up. This would be interesting, if applied to the R41.

Very interesting if it is a Mühle adjustable, specially something with a simple design like the Merkur Progress.
A TTO doesn't sound very appealing to me.

From Muhle's Facebook posting:

Quote:The new MÜHLE safety razor with precision mechanics and highly functional design: The cap of the razor can be released with a simple twist of the small wheel at the end of the handle. The closed comb remains firmly attached to the handle. Used blades can then be removed safely and replaced with new ones. The R89 TWIST will be favoured by all wet shavers who prefer the slightly heavier model and a more gently attuned safety razor.


What exactly does Muhle mean when they state that the new razor will be "more gently attuned?" Will it be even less aggressive than the normal R89?

I have to admit that I'm disappointed. Not only is the new razor not an adjustable or TTO, but it appears to be little more than a Merkur with better chrome. Meh . . .

At least Edwin Jagger has released both new and different handles as well as long-handled models of their popular styles.

The new Muhle spindle as expected. I hope there is an option for a R41 2013' head.
