Merkur 15C Classic Safety Razor, Open Tooth

14 reviews
  • Open-tooth safety razor for wiry beards
  • Takes all double edge blades
  • 3 inch non-slip knurled handle

This is the open comb version of the Merkur 15C Classic Safety Razor, a chrome finished 3-piece double edge razor. The safety bar has open teeth, which is traditionally thought to help those with wiry or very thick beards. However, those wet shavers looking for a more aggressive option (compared to the 23C) might also be interested in this. The comfortable handle is approximately 3" long and is designed with a non-slip grip. It's one of the thinner handles you'll find, but don't fear, it's still easy to hold. The lighter handle means the weight is head heavy, which is want you want as the head should be doing all the shaving work. Don't press down or into your face like you are used to, gradually reduce your beard with a few passes and you'll have a smooth face like you've never had before.The head of the razor twists off to allow blade changes like the old classic shavers from Gillette. Well sell a wide assortment of blades so you'll be sure to find one that works well for you.Merkur is one of the oldest makers of wet shaving supplies today, bringing us a mix of traditional design and German engineering and manufacturing.Handle length: 3 inchesMade in Germany

Good kit

I tried shaving my beard off once before with a Futur, but it clogged. I figured with the open comb on the Merkur 15C the hairs would fall away from the blade and I could shave without having to clear the razor, and that's exactly the way it worked. Full marks.

Excellent Little Safety Razor

This was my first open comb safety razor. Despite the reputation of open comb razors being very aggressive, this razor was not scary at all. It is suitable for beginners and veterans alike. I am very satisfied with this razor as I can obtain an acceptably close and irritation-free shave in two passes. It is definitely one of the smallest and most lightweight safety razors among non-travel razors. However, I still feel the build quality is good and I like the size and weight despite being tall (6') with relatively large hands. I previously purchased a heavy duty style razor and find it to be unwieldy and difficult to maneuver. In contrast, this razor is easier for me to manipulate. I wish this razor was more popular only to ensure that Merkur continues to view it as profitable to manufacture (in case I need another one in the future). I suppose the wet shaving community tends to prefer larger razors. I definitely recommend trying this razor, it would also make an excellent travel razor given it is lightweight and disassembles into 3 pieces.

A Must Have

Like the 1904/1905 razor I just reviewed this is not only another classic but a must have razor that needs to be in your collection. They don’t come any better to shave with and with such a bargain price this is almost a no brained. I bought this razor and the 04/05 at the same time and you should too. Mal Cooper

Great product, fast shipping

I only shave about every 5 days, so the open comb design on this razor is perfect for me.
