Founded in 1906, Merkur is a German-based company producing some of the most renowned shaving implements in the industry. The Merkur 25C DE Safety Razor (Open Comb) is a double edge open comb safety razor.
With an overall length of 95mm (3.7"), this is a standard-sized razor with a practical 83mm (3.3") handle that offers a great level of manoeuvrability and comfort, especially for those with larger hands. For a similar model with a shorter handle, try the Merkur 15C DE Safety Razor (Open Comb). At 56g (2oz), this is quite a lightweight razor compared to other models. The nimble design is well-suited for experienced shavers who want a razor that can easily glide across the contours of their face to acheive a smooth and controlled shave.
The handle features an attractive cross hatch knurled pattern, giving the razor a particularly pleasant aesthetic. Not only is the design beautiful, it's also practical as the knurled finish ensures a firm grip, which is especially important when shaving with damp or soapy hands.
Open comb razors have a feature that looks like a row of teeth or a rake running the length of the blade. This feature offers a more aggressive shave, one that allows for more blade exposure. This type of shave is ideal for those with coarser hair or experienced shavers who are more confident with their shaving technique. The construction is a three-piece design, with the head unscrewing to allow the blade to be inserted between the top and base plates.
This razor includes one Merkur Super Platinum DE Razor Blade to get you started. These blades are known for their unparalleled sharpness that offers a glidingly smooth shave. All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and therefore any DE blades you purchase will be compatible with this razor.
To take the best care of your razor, clean the parts with warm water after with every blade exchange and use a soft nail brush if desired. Slightly lubricate the mechanical parts regularly and do not overwind any screws.
The product is presented in a thick cardboard box, featuring the classic Merkur branding for authenticity.
Merkur have long been respected in the shaving industry due to the many years of quality craftsmanship they use to create some of the highest precision razors on the market. When you purchase a Merkur razor, you acquire a piece of the highest shaving culture for a cultivated start to the day.
