Merkur makes some of the world's best safety razors! Basic to fancy, simple to adjustable, there is a razor for everyone! Manufactured in Solingen by Dovo, their exacting standards mean you get a great shave and a long-lasting product! The machined handle is perfect for those who like to shave in the shower. The handle's texture helps you get a secure hold even when your hands are wet. I like it because it looks pretty damn cool. The open tooth design is great for guys with thicker beards, as it leaves some lather behind with each pass, and tends to take off more hair with each pass. Less lathering means a quicker shave! Includes one Merkur razor blade.
