I recently got a R41/R103 and just used it for the first time today. I decided to use a feather blade, my hope was they would be so sharp that they would pair nicely together. But while I didn't get any cuts or anything (which was surprising to me) I did notice some slight irritation is a few spots although it was not really visible other than some redness when I first put on my aftershave, and then after that for a little while after the shave I felt some slight irritation/burn which again was not visible. That being said I did have a super close bbs shave with the set up and look forward to trying it again with the same blade to see if it was just a first use type of thing. I am curious what those of you who actually like using this razor have found are the best blades for a good shave? (I tried to search this forum for a thread like this as to not duplicate it but I never did find it.)

In my 2013 R41, I liked Med Preps and GSB's the best.

I like to embrace the aggressiveness with sharpness.

Feather Blade.

GSB's and Polsilvers.

While I prefer Feathers in my Timeless razor, they do not perform as well in the R41

I thank so. The ikon tech is more aggressive than the r41 to me. 7 o'clock yellows work good in both for me.

For some reason Personna Reds only work in two razors: the R41 and Standard Razor.  But they work like a CHARM!
