Tailor-made for those who want an exceptional razor that is big and has a heavy handle with heavy-duty heft. The handle finished in silver chrome plating features the classic barber pole design for extra grip adding to its timeless presence. The longer length and brass body combined, adds maneuverability giving you the aptitude to move around the contours of your beard guiding the blade easily, efficiently, and accurately with precision from the first pass to the second pass. An overall all-around great shave.
The head of the safety razor features a two-piece design (top plate and handle) to maintain blade alignment commanding little utilization of force while shaving which increases the stability of the blade movement and maintains blade angle. In order to ensure a balanced weight distribution for a comfortable shave, a heavyweight brass body is used in the handle for added weight and heavy-duty feel.
A safety razor with a closed comb is the all-rounder for classic wet shaving. Intuitively, you will feel the best shaving angle for your safety razor and immediately achieve ideal shaving results.

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.
