I've been pondering the same question, and I think the Merkur 23C's mild nature is what makes it suitable for both face and body shaving. The closed comb head provides excellent control, and the textured handle ensures a firm grip, even on thicker hair.

Specifically, I'd like to know what the Merkur 38C is made of - is it stainless steel, a recyclable alloy, or something else entirely?...
