Founded in 1906, Dovo Merkur are a German based company producing some of the most renowned shaving implements in the industry. The Merkur 39C DE Safety Razor (Slant Head) is a heavyweight double edge safety razor.
Slant head razors have a safety bar that sits at a slanted angle from the top cap. Rather than cutting hairs straight on this allows the blade to slice hairs at an angle, offering a guillotine style of shaving that produces a clean and efficient cut.
This feature offers what is referred to as 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 technique.
This razor includes one Merkur Super Platinum DE Razor Blade to get you started. These blades are known for their unparalleled sharpness that offer 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.
The handle features an attractive barber pole style design, increasing wet grip and offering a particularly pleasant appearance. It is a relatively heavyweight razor that is nicely balanced and a pleasure to use. It is said to be a longer version of the Merkur 37C DE Safety Razor (Slant Head) with a slightly different handle design.
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.
