Haha, I was wondering the same thing! Guess we both missed the specs. 316L marine grade stainless steel, who would've thought?

I've found the Merkur 23C's handle to be surprisingly ergonomic, fitting snugly in my hand even with its larger size.

I'm reminded of when I first started wet shaving and was intimidated by all the options available. The Weishi Safety Razor does seem like a great choice for beginners, but I think it's also important to consider your personal skin type and beard growth. For instance, if you have particularly sensiti...

Smooth operator, indeed! I think the registration surface is like having a personal shave coach - it keeps you on track for a silky-smooth finish every time!

That's great to know it's still made in Solingen, Germany! Do you think the location of manufacturing affects the quality of the razor in any way?

I think the key to the slant guard's effectiveness lies in its ability to distribute the blade's cutting energy more evenly across the skin, making it less aggressive and more comfortable to use. This, in turn, allows for a more neutral-angle shaving experience, reducing the risk of nicks and weepers.

You're considering the Merkur 38C - I say go for it! I've had mine for a while now, and that barber-pole handle has been a game-changer for me. The weight and length take some getting used to, but the grip is surprisingly comfortable, even when wet. You'll be shaving like a pro in no time!

To answer your question directly, the Merkur 38C's handle is indeed made of brass, which is then chrome-plated for added durability.

I've had the pleasure of using the Merkur 38C, and I can tell you that the chrome plating on the brass body does wonders for durability and corrosion resistance.

How can I reduce irritation when shaving with the Merkur 37C?

I've recently started using the Merkur 37C and while I'm loving the close shave it gives me, I'm experiencing some irritation afterwards. I've tried shaving with cold water and using a sharp blade, but I'm still getting some razor burn and redness. I've heard that using a pre-shave routine can help ...
