- safety razor
BEST shave ever.. Makes a GREAT gift....
I have used the 23C for a handful of years and just sent one to my brother for his B-day to try/use. He is now converted to the single blade safety razor type.... He shaves twice a week, and an ASTRA blade will last him for at least two weeks, = 24 blades per year, 96 blades for 4 damn years on a 10 dollar box of ASTRA'S from the E store. NO MORE 12 dollar plus for only 4 cartridges that quickly plug-up and are hard as **** to rinse clean. Do yourself a favor and buy one for yourself and you WILL want to also make one or more a gift for anyone who wants a GREAT shave for only pennies per blade.. BUY ONE NOW...
The perfect Razor
Love this New Razor's look, feel, weight, etc. Very nice addition to my collection!
This is just a great razor. Close shave, no irritation, works quite well. I was stuck on multiple bladed razors for so long and never really happy. Took the plunge on this - the MerKur - and was really surprised how well it works. The Razor itself is well crafted and should last for a long time. I'm about 2 months into using this - FYI...
Not just for man hands
First off I would like to say that I am a woman with small hands, but I figured the longer handle would be good for shaving legs. This is my first safety razor, and I found it very easy to hold and use. The weight feels good and the handle doesn't slip around. It doesn't clog up with hair like the disposable razors do. I also bought the rum and vanilla shave soap to use with it and it works very well with just that. Great purchase, I'd recommend it to anyone.
Great long-handle razor
This is a well-built razor and feels a little more comfortable in my hand than standard-length handles. I'm 6'6" and this fits my hand pretty nicely. The handle is a touch thinner than I expected, but it has a solid weight and it balances well. Fit and finish seem very good for the first few weeks I've had it. Shaves on the mild side and has paired with Astra and Feather blades very well for me.
