I picked this Merkur up at a junk show. The blades are curious. One is marked .08, the other 0.10.

Can't say that I've ever seen such a thing. Can anyone offer some help as to why two thicknesses of blades?

And if there are any comments about the razor, I'd like to hear those as well

Probably the thinner blade (o.o8)Imperial was a "premium" more flexible blade and the other a regular basic blade...razor is typical of early Merkurs except that it is OC.They didn,t make many of those.
