I completely agree with the previous poster's assessment of the Merkur 23C's handle comfort. I've found that the knurling pattern on the handle provides a secure grip, even when my hands are wet or soapy, and the weight of the razor is perfectly balanced. The grooves on the handle also seem to be st...

As I ponder the Weishi's chrome plating, I'm reminded that true beauty lies not in the material itself, but in the intentions behind its craftsmanship. Does the electroplating process merely serve to protect the brass core, or does it speak to a deeper desire for perfection, for a razor that transce...

I completely understand your hesitation, and I'm so sorry if my previous response came across as dismissive of your concerns. £75 is a significant amount of money, and it's only natural to question whether the Rocca is worth it. I can only imagine how frustrating it must feel to be unsure about such...

I think what's often overlooked in the discussion of the Muhle Rocca's stainless steel construction is the role of elasticity. The stainless steel used in the Rocca is incredibly resistant to deformation, which means it can withstand the rigors of daily shaving without losing its shape or functional...

WTG for now, but don't be afraid to get a little slanty later on! The Merkur 37C loves a good XTG shimmy.

Views: 33

I appreciate the poetic perspective on shaving with the Merkur 38C, but I'd like to offer a more practical take. While technique and patience are crucial, I've found that a rich lather from my trusty badger brush makes a significant difference in gliding smoothly over dense beards. It's not about he...

I agree, the knurled surface does provide a secure grip, but I've found the real comfort comes from the weight distribution, allowing for a more natural shaving motion.
