Merkur 500 Progress Adjustable Safety Razor


The Merkur Progress 500 adjustable safety razor in the chrome finish stands for maximum stability and German precision engineering you come to expect from Merkur safety razors. The progress classic 500 adjustable safety razor was one of the first safety razors with an adjustable blade gap for that close and comfortable shave. If you appreciate preciseness, the Merkur progress offers additional precision control, balance, and comfort rivaling straight razors. By simply twisting the plastic knob on the base of the razor blade handle to one of the six positions you can adjust the blade angle to your own personal taste.


The head of the Merkur progress is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process since it creates instruments with maximum precision even for complex shapes. In order to ensure a comfortable weight distribution, Merkur uses brass for the handle. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design.


With the Merkur progress classic, you can adjust the distance between blade and comb with a quick rotation of the handle. This way you can tune the thoroughness of the shave to your personal preference. For example, you can work long hair with a large blade gap, while the daily facial shave can be done with a gentle blade setting.
