Merkur. You've probably seen it at the top of best seller lists in blogs, forums, and vendors all over the interweb. Well, yep! They are some of our top selling razors, too. They've been doing it longer and better than most. So with a history like that, why wouldn't you check out the Merkur Heavy Duty Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor.

Over 100 years of blade manufacturing and expertise go into production of these grooming essentials. The Merkur Heavy Duty Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor is chrome-finished for corrosion resistance and the requisite gleam. It is a 2-piece double edge razor. This means that the top plate of the head unscrews from the handle and base plate, the blade can be changed out, and the long screw is re-inserted into the handle. It also is closed comb/straight bar so your skin feels less of the blade exposure. And it takes any standard DE blade.

The comfortable handle is designed with a non-slip grip so you can use it in wet environments (Good thing, eh?). Longer and heavier than the 34C, it weighs over 4 oz. The striped texture also evokes images of the iconic striped barber pole that would have hearlded a generation of gentleman to enjoy the very ritual that you do.

Length: 4 inches

Weight : 113 grams

Made in Germany

Best Shave

I paired these with feather blades and when I take my time I can get a super close shave. To the point of no evening stubble.

It's a nice razor. I think I like the 34C better. It is more maneuverable and easier to shave with. I'll still use it.

Another first timer...

I bought this razor simply based on its description, which fit everything I was looking for. The fit in my hand is nice, the weight is excellent. This being my first DE safety razor I was a little concerned about cutting myself...pfft! First use gave one fantastic close shave. I started hating the cartridge razors years ago when the twin blades started going out, now if you can find them they're insanely expensive. The 5 blade cartridges are just flat out ridiculous. When I bought this razor, I also bought the 100 pack of blades for $18 (Astra superior platinum). In the end, just as WCS claims, I have a superior product (over "disposable" and cartridge razors) that will actually save me money in the long run. I win! Last two things I can say - I definitely recommend this razor, and I wish I had known about DE safety razors 30 years ago.

so far so good

nice razor, easy to use wether wet or dry. Has a nice weight but is still a little small for my hands. Looks beautiful, and doesn't slip from my hands at all.
