What’s this Merkur?

Hello, this is my first time posting, but have been a long time reader! I joined here a while ago, because of all the great information. I have learned a whole lot, and gained a whole lot as well haha. I found this Merkur I had purchased at the beginning of my shaving journey. It had been advertised as a 34c. When I received it, I told the seller it wasn’t what was advertised, and was quickly refunded, and was told to keep this razor. I never used it, because it just seemed like the blade exposure was too much, and the concaved shaped made the razor look extra aggressive. Fast forward to today, I found it again, thought of using it, but I’m still undecided. I tried searching for some information about it, but still can’t find what model of a Merkur this is. Any of you out there know? The was it’s shaped, makes me think it’s not for the face, maybe it’s for the legs? Is it even a Merkur? It’s still seems way too aggressive for me, so it sits, smiling.

I think it is a Merkur 23c or 25c. The safety bar is pushed in on each side, you should not use it. Top cap and handle look okay.

It looks like it might have been run over by the UPS truck! It's worthless for shaving with. The handle looks like it's from a Merkur 23c. If the handle is straight, you could use it with another razor head.
 
Thank you so much. I hadn’t thought of the possibility that it was damaged, but now that you guys mention it, I can see it. I thought it was designed this way! I’m glad I didn’t use it! I can definitely see that the bars are not evenly bent. This whole time I thought it was a frankenrazor. Thank you guys for saving my face!
