I understand the concern about the weight, but I think it's essential to consider the handle design and grip as well. The Merkur 38C's Barber-Pole Handle with a non-slip grip is specifically designed to provide a comfortable hold, even for those with smaller hands.

Soaking and brushing are effective methods, but I'd like to add that a gentle rinse with warm water after shaving can also help prevent lather residue from accumulating in those crevices.

Thank you so much for asking this question, I was wondering the same thing! I've had my 34C for a few months now and I can confidently say the chrome plating has held up beautifully, even with daily use and cleaning.

Have you tried using a precision trimmer for the tricky areas? What about shaping with a template for cleaner lines?

I've tried the bushier look and ended up resembling a rogue hedge. The boar brush didn't tame much. Trimming was my saving grace. Each beard's a wild adventure!
