Are Merkur blades good?

Merkur blades are made with top quality materials and have an excellent design, and as a result they are very durable. I think they last slightly longer than the average de blade. For example, I can usually get 4 or 5 shaves out of most blades. But with Merkur’s, I can comfortably stretch it into 6 or 7 shaves.

Is Merkur 23c mild?

The Merkur 23c is quite a mild razor, although you could certainly upgrade it with a Feather razor blade. One thing to watch is that reduction in feedback. With a short angle it is quite easy to tell if you are shaving efficiently or causing razor burn but this vibration in the handle is softened with more length.

How many shaves does a Merkur blade have?

between 3-7 shaves

Merkur 23c Description & Features Materials and Finish – The handle is made from brass and the razor head is manufactured using a zinc die-casting method. The handle and head are both chrome plated which makes them shiny and attractive.

How aggressive is Merkur 23c?

Moderate Aggressiveness The Merkur 23c is really similar to the 33c in terms of aggressiveness. I rate the 23c as probably a 5/10 on the aggressiveness scale. Since it’s razorhead heavy, it’s a really nice smooth shave. The razor does all the work for you — if you let it.

How many times can you reuse a safety razor blade?

They can be reused some 5 to 10 times, depending on how thick your hair is. After that, you’ll need to replace the blade and dispose of the old one.

How often should you change the blade in a safety razor?

Generally speaking, any safety razor that is used almost daily will need to have its blades replaced after a week or after six shaves. That is assuming that it’s being used with a “three-pass” technique. Razor blades lose their sharpness after an extended period of usage.
