I completely understand your hesitation, and it's great that you're taking the time to research and consider your options. I've been in your shoes before, and it can be overwhelming when making the switch to a DE razor. If you're still unsure, I'd recommend trying to find someone who has a Merkur 23...

I've found that the quality of the shave greatly depends on the blade's condition. Since you've noticed the blade getting clogged with excess hair and waxed residue, it's likely time for a change.
