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

Fantastic razor

I bought this directly from Merkur. It is my second safety razor, and I find it's awesome. The long handle fits my gorilla hands, and the weight makes it feel substantial. It shaves closely and, as long as I'm careful, there's minimal bloodshed! Seriously, one of the best things about wet shaving is slowing down and paying attention to detail. This razor gives me a plenty close shave, with significantly less irritation than the cartridge razors I've used all my life. I can't imagine any reason ever to replace it. Highly, highly recommended.

Great Razor

Perfect size for my XL glove size hands. Has a nice channel under the blade to make it easy to rinse out. Nice weight and easy to control.

Great razor

My first razor and I’m SO happy with it. Great shave every time. Perfect starter that I’m told will lady a lifetime as well. Would buy it again in an instant. I heard the handle was too long for some people, but not at all for me. Great balance and I think the 34c would have been too small for me.

Great razor

Razor has a nice weight to it, and angles the blade to get a close cut.
