Great switch after 30 plus years with cartridge razor

I remember my father using one of these types of razors when I was a child but I've always used a cartridge razor, starting with two blades and now up to five, at a cost of about $4/cartridge. My facial hair isn't terribly thick so the cartridge worked fine and I only had to change it every few weeks. In other words, this purchase wasn't about saving money but rather I'd read about safety razor shaving and thought I'd give it a try. After just a few weeks with this razor I know that I will never be going back. I started with a derby blade, which was great, but then went on to an Astra, which is amazing on my face. I have somewhat sensitive skin so I was a little worried, but shouldn't have been. The shave is incredibly close, smooth and doesn't irritate my skin. More than anything else though it is about the process. Just as I've packed up my Keurig and now I'm using a French Press for coffee, I've also packed up my cartridge and I'm using the DE saftey razor for my shave. It takes a few extra moments but it is well worth it. I feel like I am treating myself and frankly I feel like a man rather than a boy (funny to say as I'm approaching 50!) when I put the razor to my face. Of course over the long run this will save me money, but that is honestly secondary at this point. It is about treating myself right and the Merkur 38c is a great way to accomplish that.

Sleek and stylish...

The Merkur 38C is the best razor I own. I own the other, with the spiral knurling, and have had my eye on the black handled version for a while. I did have my doubts as to how well I could keep a grip on this razor, even after reading several reviews that said it was not slippery even when wet. It went on sale, so I finally decided to bite the bullet and try it for myself. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the other reviews were right. Although it is not as grippy as the knurled version, and it takes a little more attention when using, I really have nothing to complain about. It looks a lot more sleek and classy in black, and the performance does not disappoint. Same smooth, close, comfortable shave, and comfortable to hold...even when wet.

Almost perfect

Solid piece of kit. Very nice to shave with. When I use the pre-shave oil the handle becomes as slippery as wet ice. There are two possible resolutions to this problem - don't use a pre-shave oil. Or use a shaver with a textured grip handle.

Nice black finish

The grip of the 38C is thinner than I like, but it is still easy to hold and control without slippage even with wet hands. The black finish is great and it shaves as well as my other Merkur. Guess I’m just spoiled by my 43C.
