Merkur double edge safety razors are a household term among wet-shavers! These German-crafted shaving tools have become a standard in the industry. They are part of Dovo, who was founded in 1906. Merkur offers very interesting options and are far more expansive than many other safely razor companies. You can get a variety of head styles ranging from a straight safety bar, open comb, or slant bar. In addition to the heads, there are a variety of handles from 2 piece, 3 piece, and adjustable razors. They tend to have very good knurling on the handles, which is helpful when your hands are slippery. Merkur is a great brand to explore if you have not found exactly the perfect razor for cutting those whiskers and need to try another razor style, or if you are the kind of guy (or gal) who just likes to change it up a bit sometimes.
