Well made classic closed comb razor in good price.
I'm new to Safe Razors and I'm very impressed at how easy it is to use (same as any plastic razor really). I'm a women and use it for legs and armpits. It does the job perfect. I love that it's zero waste and that I just have to buy new blades. I should have bought this 10 years ago !
Nice weight short handle smooth shaver lovely vintage look cant fault it.
An efficient shave of both face and head with the razor being slightly handle heavy and the lack of full knurling on the handle makes it a little slippy at times compared to razors of similar weight it still out man-oeuvres them thanks to the Merkur head over all a nice comfortable shave with no skin irritation or nicks
If you are looking for a classic closed comb razor for upgrading you supermarket one, don't hesitate. Merkur 42c 1904 Classic Razor is made with precision, and I give 5 stars. Even a symmetry of the construction, which makes it quite a task to distinguish between the blade sides (there are some "white" blades) is not a show stopper.
Very well made. Good weight in it, and nicely finished off. Best shave yet!
