Very nice, Ben!
I managed to get the 37G before it was discontinued. These are fine razors, the Merkurs, and offer great performance at a reasonable price, representing value. I've often wished they would offer a premium line with brass plated versions though. Even more wishful is the thought of a stainless steel Merkur! Biggrin

Thanks Ravi.

The HD range was excellent and provided an easy to use razor and a range of shaving experiences. I worked my way through the three, starting with the safety bar and finishing with the slant. I find them all comfortable shavers. They are effective, but mild and IMO represented wonderful choices for the novice user.

I now favour the Futur, but still visit my slant regularly. Although I rarely use the others, I wanted a complete set of HD's in gold and chrome for my two sons to begin their shaving journeys with. They can debate amongst themselves who inherits which finish...

Ravi, you ask about "Merkur" stainless steel...... their is a hybrid one called the 43C with a stainless steel handle.

It is one of the heaviest razors that Merkur do, this is one in my regular rotation.

Charles, I own both the Vision and an Elite Razor/Merkur "Barber Pole" 38C (featuring a handle by Bob with the classic white, blue and red Barber Pole motif), but didn't include them in the matching set of Gold and Chrome above.

Almost forgot, I also own both versions of the classic or 1904 too (OC and SB).

Every time I see one of these it makes me want to try one. I'm not much on adjustable razors, but this one draws my attention for some reason.
