Should have jumped on one before they were discontinued. Would like to find one in excellent shape with no bent teeth. Thanks.

Gary at shoeboxshaving.com is has them in stock but they run over $50 + shipping.
The good news is they are brand new and Gary is a very reliable seller. They are becoming extinct because Merkur is no longer making them.

They're great mild shavers as well. A great intro to an Open Comb.

Thanks slantman but $57.00 is crazy. I don't need one that bad they are in the $43.00 usually.

$57 is probably a good deal on it unless you can pick up one on the BST. The 11C has become just like every other discontinued product (Moos, La Toja, etc). Once they are gone, they're gone so demand exceeds supply. At least 1 or 2 pop up every week on shaving websites for sale. I love that HD design, whether it's an 11C, 37C, or 34C. It's a classic looking design.

Other models still readily available have the same head design and allow you the swap handles which is nice.

Dave, I love that they are 2 piece and the HD handle is why I like it. The other Merkur OC that are still avail have too skinny of a handle.

I could not agree more Patrick. I don't like skinny handles at all and that's the problem with Merkurs 3 piece OC's. I always use my Merkur Combs with a 3rd party handle.
