    I am going to get right to the point…. the aggressiveness is simply not there for me.
    I own a TTO parker (very mild)
    also own a merkur 37 c (relatively aggressive)
    I bought this razor thinking it wouldn’t be as aggressive as the slant bar, but from reviews would certainly be more aggressive than a TTO or standard bar razor… this thing is super mild! tried a couple different blades, and for a while i was not sure the razor was even shaving. I will admit the save was extremely comfortable but not very close. Are open comb razors designed for heavy growth? Idk but was hoping for more expose. Other than that, a very nice looking and feeling razor by merkur.

    The 23c closed comb , and the 25c open comb are both great razors , 25c more aggressive , 23c mild great choice for beginners , can be shimmed to increase aggressiveness . I love both , both have long handles (often referred to as 180 long handle) Great Choices from Merkur !

    The 23c (180) ,IMO, is Merkur’s every mans razor so it is sold by the millions worldwide. I love mine except for the handle being so skinny. I’ll order a new handle from Maggard’s selection of replacement handles to have my “perfect” razor. 🙂

    My 23C closed comb screw broke off of the top plate.
    No return email (including photo of defect) from Merkur.
    Ordering an M6 to replace my Merkur 23C.
