Merkur 11C

For those of you who don't know this razor, it is simply an open comb version of the 34C. I love the short, heavy handle and the feel (I have a 37C as well).
Seeing as this one has been out of production for a good number of years, I'm wondering what other razors may provide a similar shaving experience? I don't use the OC that often, but it is great if I skip a day or two of shaving and having a back-up wouldn't be a bad idea.

Thanks for your thoughts.
 
Thanks Steve - I may have to investigate that a little more. Up until now, I haven't had a lot of luck with Old Types.
 
There were vintage Merkurs that were three pieces and shaved about the same. I have one that's replated. Here are the photos of such a Merkur.

I think the current Merkur 1094/06 Classic 41C shaves like my Merkur 11. Feels different in the hand, but similar, mild, OC shaves.

Mild enough for daily use.

That looks interesting but probably not the easiest thing to find. Thanks!
