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.
