I gave my nephew a Muhle R41 twist and he loves the razor but would enjoy a less slippery grip. Any suggestions appreciated.

A couple O-rings work wonders.....(or as many as you like)......some people rub alum on their handles but o -rings work as you will see.

Can also use heat shrink tubing...with or without the O-rings.

When I had that problem with a razor that since has departed the house, I simply figure-8-ed two rubber bands (the quarter-inch wide ones), one around the top end and the other around the bottom end, of the handle.

Use alum on your fingers to get a better grip.

Alum would be the least expensive thing to use, or he could just order a replacement head from Connaught Shaving and get a grippier handle. Shy

Sorry, my mistake. It is a Twist, so no other handle works, of course.

I bought a couple of Weber SS handles for use with my R41, DE89, HD and several other Merkur/Muhle/EJ razors - infinitely better than the smooth, slippery handles that come stock with those razors.

R41 Twist is a 2-piece model. Handle is fixed and not replaceable

You are correct.  I saw R41 and missed the "twist."  Was thinking of the traditional razor, which is what I have.  My bad.
