We've got good news! A razor for man-sized hands: Merkur 23C Long Handle Safety Razor. In 1896 when Emil Hermes went to register his new blade company he found the name "Hermes" already taken.

Yep, the world got the message and so can you.

Like the classic Merkur DE safety razor, this tool provides exceptional control, comfort, and design. At 4" long, it is perfect for a comfortable and safe grip with its long, knurled handle, especially for those with larger hands. Keep up the perfect shave with the perfect blade. Try one of our sample packs to find the one that it right for you.

"Man Hand" men rejoice. This is your razor: Merkur 23C Long Handle Safety Razor. Don't keep it to yourself; spread the word about this best-selling grooming essential.

Excellent razor

I just purchased the Merkur 23C long handle safety razor and am blown away of how close of a shave it delivers! Not one nick. Very easy to load and handle never slipped - perfect weight for a perfect shave. Thank you Merkur!

It’s a new day and a old way!

This is a precision instrument that I fully appreciate. The balance as well as the fit and finish is spot on. As much I love shaving with Mercury 23C, I going to collect a few more safety razors because to tell you the truth I’m getting addicted to this type of shaving! I’ll never go back to the drug store razors again as the old way of shaving is just a better shave hands down. Thanks West Coast Shaving for the education and fantastic service!

Purchased my first "real" razor since borrowing my dad's to shave my legs as a teen a hundred years ago. This time I drew no blood, only compliments.

Long thin handle provides helpful leverage and maneuverability

I'm a man who is shaving my face. The long handle provides leverage to let the weight of the head do the work. I am less inclined to press the head onto my skin than I do with some shorter handles (pressing increases nicks). The slenderness of the handle allows my stubby hands to maneuver the razor with greater finesse than I seem to be able to do with my larger diameter long handled razors.

Nicely balanced razor

Performs as well as my more expensive razor. Long handle for my woman-sized hands, with good grip when wet (shaving my legs in the shower), solid without being too heavy.
