The MERKUR 23C was originally developed in the ‘20s. Its reliable quality makes it a timeless classic: the long handle and straight foam edge ensure a particularly smooth shave. The MERKUR specific spacious blade gap allows a high soap flow and also makes cleaning noticeably easier.
The long handle also makes it an option for female use.
- Made in Germany
- 9.7mm handle
Had one of these for last few years but left it on holiday so jumped straight online to buy a new one. This is a fantastic razor for females.
The shaver arrived fast which was great. It is definitely a merkur and it seems to shave ok. But it definitely isn’t black like the one I ordered. So other than those few things I’m actually not sure what type of shaver I’m supposed to be reviewing.
I have a Henson razor as well and might now end up gifting it as I keep reaching for the Merkur. I enjoy it being slightly more aggressive and being a little bit heavier. Definitely a good buy and solidly built I'm sure it will last a long time.
