Hi all,

Recently have had quite a sizeable clearout and so my 12C has now come back into my rotation.

I must have used it once before so I can't remember how it shaved.

I gave it a go today...

I found this razor to be quite mild but all the reviews I've read it's meant to be quite an aggressive razor.

I was just wondering what your thoughts are on this razor? I am also wondering if I am using it wrong?

Any thoughts would be great Smile

Merkur Open Combs are very mild (or they have been for me at least). They're as mild as Merkur's standard bar razors and below the slant razors.

I agree with Dave, but have found the 12C to be a bit more mild than the 11C. It's the same head and I presume it is the weight of the longer handle and the change in distribution that creates this impression.

The 12C is a very mild razor and i found no difference between the 11C and it. If you really find it mild, try shimming it to see what happens. It could transform the razor! Good luck.
