There’s been some media on the Internet recently about older methods of shaving and their advantages. I studied up and decided to get this razor, made by a German company called Merkur.

This is the model 180, which has a long handle and is supposedly easier for those customed to modern razors made by the likes of Schick and Gilette.

I liked it very much with the Merkur Super blade that was included. But as that blade inevitably dulled with use, I have been testing other blades and will blog about the results.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.
