The Merkur 23C Long-Handled Safety Razor with polished chrome accents expresses exceptional handling comfort and distinguished purpose.  Get your shaving brushes ready! The razor Merkur 23C directly makes cartridge razors antiquated, producing a smooth, close precision shave rivaling straight razors. One of Merkur of Soligen Germany's most popular models, the Merkur 23C long handle was originally developed in the 1920s. Also known as the Merkur 180 featuring an extra-long 4" handle length with a knurled grip and a straight bar, closed comb head delivers an amazingly comfortable shave without razor burn.

Its reliable quality and Merkur precision are what make this timeless classic double edge safety razor primed for the absolute perfect shave: the long handle and straight foam edge assure a particularly smooth shave without interruption through the medium aggressive razor blade gap that allows a high soap flow, in addition, making cleaning remarkably effortless.


The head of the safety razor is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process since it creates instruments with maximum accuracy even for complex shapes and sensitive skin for an irritation-free shave. In order to ensure a comfortable weight distribution, Merkur only uses brass for the long handle. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and emphasizes the high-quality design.

    MERKUR 39C

    Merkur must be German for moderate. No crack on quality though, this is a well made item. My beard is pretty tough. I had to find a more aggressive razor and I was hoping this would be the one. I tried adjusting the angle and different blades and I never quite achieved a close shave, on my face. I did develop a bumpy chin from so many passes. I thought I would have to relegate this well made device to an adornment. I realized I had not tried it on my head. I never use the same razor for both. I loaded it with a Bolzano blade and had a really good head shave. This is the one but not for my face. I do believe this would be an excellent razor for someone with light to moderate beard coarseness. Grown man shave had this at the best price I had seen for this razor.
