Merkur 43c first time used
I own (and use) 5 other Merkur models before purchasing the Merkur 43c. I use Feather blades in all my Merkur razors. The Merkur 43c is by far the heaviest Merkur razor I own. Once I got used to the weight of the razor, this razor gave me excellent shaves.
Wow this bad boy is heavy. This razor handle paired with a PolSilver blade decimated four days of beard growth very nicely. It has the same head design as the smaller 34c but its much heavier. The weight of the handle does all the work for you. I think its a great balance between weight, handle length and head design.
My husband loves it!
Bought this for my husband for Christmas after 11 years of hearing him complain how disposable razors tear up his face and last for only one or two shaves. After only a few times of using this Merkur razor he exclaimed to me, "Oh, by the way, that new razor you bought me... I f...ing love it!" We also like that it is better for the environment.
Bought this safety razor in 2014 and haven't been back to this page ever since .. (because i didn't need another one)... now i have decided to buy this for my dad .. My experience so far .. superb .. this is my first branded safety razor (Only those that is made in China is available in Malaysia) after few of them got rusty and low quality .. i bought Merkur 43C .. i loved it .. Built quality is awesome .. despite the fact i felt it is heavy initially but got used to the weight. The weight helps shaving effortlessly.. i am glad i got this razor and thanks to West Coast Shaving.
