Merkur Classic 1904 / 1906 Safety Razor with Bar

45 reviews
  • Chrome faceted handle
  • Classic 3-piece safety razor
  • German engineering

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! The closed bar/closed comb head means the bar hits your skin before the blade to give you protection from the raw steel.

Great for women, too!!

I was drawn to the retro 6 sided design of this razor, so this was my 1st purchase from WCS. Delivery was very fast! The handle is short (but not too short) for women and is easy to use. It has great weight and grip. When paired with an Astra blade, this razor provides an efficient and very forgiving shave.

Great razor for beginners!

As someone who admittedly doesn’t have the thickest growth, this razor paired with a sharp blade gives me an incredibly comfortable shave! I could see this being a really good choice for new wetshavers as well! Very forgiving blade angle!

New Merkur Safety Razor

I own 4 maybe 5 DE safety razors....I received this new Merkur about two weeks ago, and have been using it ever since. This is a great razor!. It gives a great shave; its weight and balance is just right. I really appreciate the short handle which makes the razor very easy to maneuver as I move the blade over my face. I'm going to be using this razor as my day to day razor for quite a while!!
