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. I carry a gold razor in my travel kit, but I use a chrome one at home. Its old school look will never fade. Includes one Merkur razor blade.
