I have only used the new Mekur 50C razor 4 times but compared to my old Gillette Sensor-Excel cartridge (2 blade) razor it seems to result in a much better shave. It was getting hard to find blades for the old Sensor-Excel and I was not happy with the expensive 3 - 5 blade cartridge game. I found Razor Emporium.com and decided to give the old style double razor a try. Wish I had kept my old Gillette double blade razor that I used until the late '70's.
Personally do not like this razor .
Shave seemed harsh and aggressive even on lowest setting . Perhaps due to a different bend in blade from the head system design . I have several Merkur models and find them excellent shavers with very good build quality as well as fit and finish . This model just did not give me a comfortable shave .
I have used a fair amount of razors in my quest for the "perfect one". I don't know if a perfect one in fact exists, but if it does, it got to be the Merkur Progress.
This is so easy to use, I would recommend to any wetshaver newbie without hesitation. The cutting angle is so close to what a cartridge razor is, that it makes the transition effortless. On top of that, you can set the blade exposure to suit your needs and skin, which is great. Very well built and finished. Has that classic look to it. This is the second progress I bought. Since buying the first, my other razors are just collecting dust.
