  • Classic 3-piece safety razor

If you spend any time at all on our website, you will discover that many of the WCS bestselling razors bear the Merkur name. That's because Merkur is synonymous with great tools. From its inception in 1896 to today, Merkur has served their customers with quality and distinction. In this Merkur Classic 1904/1906 Safety Razor with Bar, they stormed the archives to bring you a truly traditional shaving instrument. When Gillette first introduced this safety razor animal in 1906, it might have looked a lot like this. Merkur introduces it with all their expertise behind it.

This grooming essential is a chrome-plated beauty in a 3-piece design. The traditional 3-piece design allows you to quickly change the blade by unscrewing the handle from the two-head plates. Sandwiched between the two plates is your favorite DE blade. Simply switch them out and screw back together. You will be shaving again in no time.

The faceted handle is beauty and function. While it graces your bathroom vanity with aplomb, it also provides grip in wet environments. . . like wet shaving! Features the open tooth safety bar for thicker beards and a more aggressive shave.

Make Merkur your go-to: Merkur Classic 1904 / 1906 Safety Razor, Open Tooth.

Made in Solingen, Germany

Way better than the merkur progress

Had been using merkur progress for a while - this is WAY better at producing a smooth, close shave with only one or two passes, especially on thick stubble or infrequent shaves. Wish I'd switched to open comb years ago.

Merkur Classic 1904 / 1906 Safety Razor, Open Tooth

I saw the Merkur sale here, and having recently heard a rumor that the company was in bankruptcy, I thought I should buy a couple, specifically this one and the Progress. I'm a vintage razor collector, and this 1904/1906 attracted me due to it's appearance: head styled like a Gillette Old Type, and hex handle looking a bit like an Eversharp 1912-patent single-edge. A modern aesthetic hybrid of two great classics! I prefer an open-comb razor for channeling lather to the blade edge. Beginner wet-shavers who want to experience the open-comb difference have nothing to fear from this beauty. It's mild as milk and will save you some skin while you're learning. The blade gap is tiny, and the blade exposure is neutral or maybe even negative...you'll have to work hard to get a nick. I'm a BBS-chaser, so I use a shim or two depending on the sharpness of the blade (make a shim by barely trimming the sharp edges of an old blade, and mounting it between the shaving blade and the base-plate). The handle has plenty of grip for my taste, and I'm enjoying the shaves.

Great open comb

First open comb razor and found it amazing! I have a Vikings safety razor and this is more aggressive but I like that. Not overly aggressive but you will get a lot closer shave. And this razor is just beautiful.

I love this little guy!

I find myself using this 1904 more and more these days. I usually bounce between my R89 and this 1904 depending on the day and feel of my skin. I love the size and simplicity of this little three-piece and the Merkur quality is immediately appreciated. Not as aggressive as my R41 but just right when you want an open-combed razor that is easy to handle. Might be the best bang for the buck out there.

Great shave

Long story short great razor for the price. Super close shave. Especially with the open tooth guard. Only thing that sucks with this shaver tool is I wish the handle had more grip feels like am holding a dumbbell while am shaving.
