    I love this razor. I have the 15C which has the same head but a shorter handle, which I replaced with a Maggard handle. The longer handle on the 25C feels great and looks great. This is to me a mild razor which is perfect for the way I shave – Against the grain with pressure, and a lot of face buffing. A more aggressive razor like the 34C or the Futur works well for me but leaves a lot of cuts if I want a really close shave. I get a BBS shave with the 25C with no bleeding at all and no need for an alum block. Like all of my Mercur razors the blade lines up perfectly in the razor. Maggard service was excellent as always.

    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.
