I am not a fan of the Merkur 25c. The shave is fairly inefficient and the fit and finish are mediocre. The 985 is the same head on a travel handle.
The Parker 99R is somewhat more efficient, but IMO it's still marginal. And the price is too high - Parker razors used to be an economical alternative to Merkur and Edwin Jagger; now they generally cost more.
The Muhle R102 is the notorious R41 with a white plastic handle. It is probably the most demanding on the market. If your technique is not perfect, you will likely have irritation; bloodshed is a distinct possibility.
The Edwin Jagger DE89 and Muhle R89 (and R106, and R108, and...) are essentially the same razor; only the handles differ. I highly recommend any of them, especially if you can get one for $20-25.
