This was my first safety razor and I was very excited to receive it. The 23C was great to learn with as it was easy to use (especially with the long handle) and not overly aggressive. The brush has held up well and works up a good lather. I am disappointed in the stand as it has rusted on the top surface of the base as well as where the safety razor is held, so cannot give 5 stars for that reason.
Was very happy to receive in time my Merkur 23C. Excellent handling and robust. Easy to clean.
I got this for my wife as I think the longer somewhat slender handle is a little more feminine... and I think it fits the purpose well compared to something like a 34C Which in my opinion is a bit more "manly". My one negative is the handle on the brush is the injection molded plastic as compared to wood handles on some of the other fendrihan brushes (included the $10 boar brush which is amazing btw) and I like the feel of wood better, but Fendrihan handled my complaint well in line with their great service.
The stand and brush are fantastic. The razor is really good but has been replaced by a vintage Gillette that I got from eBay. I do not regret my purchase at all.
