This razor features a slant Merkur head, designed to give a more aggressive shave. More blade is exposed on one side than the other, which means that it cuts more like the slice of a knife - this makes it ideal for folks with coarse, wiry hair. For most people, this is a safety razor they pick up after having learned how to shave comfortably with a more standard design.
The thicker, handle provides excellent grip whether you're shaving in front of the mirror or in the shower.
Works with any standard Double-Edged razor blade.
Chrome plating protects the core metal from corrosion.
2-Piece construction is durable and easy to re-load.
Be sure to dispose of blades in a Blade Bank.
Comes with 5 Kent of Inglewood Mild Blades.
