I have been shaving with a double edge razor since the 1950s. I originally had Gilette Razors--eventually owning three of them--an ajustable--I think it was called the "fat boy,"-- a standard size butterfly opening Gillette, and a long handle one I believe was called the "knack." When double edge razors no longer were available in stores I thought I had better hang onto the Gillette razors because I believed double edge razors were extinct. Only in about the last five years have I learned that double edge razors are not extinct after all. Since that time I have accumulated three different Parker razors, three English razors (I don't recall the name at the moment), and four Merkur razors. At first I thought the English razors were going to be the best, but the more I used the Merkur Razors the more I loved them--except for the adjustable model. That one is too large, ackward to use, and no setting I have tried comes close to the standard Merkur Razors. I have the Merkur Classic, the long handled model, and also the heavy duty one. I love them all except for the adjustable. I have recently compared them with my old Gillettes. The Merkur razors win out, hands down. I really mean it when I call the Merkur razors the best in the world. They give amazingly close shaves--nothing gets closer, in my opinion--and they do it very safely. I almost never nick myself. I truly love these razors, and with more than 50 years of shaving experience I feel I know what I am talking about.

The only shave that's closer than a safety razor shave is from an old-school straight-edge "cutthroat" razor. And I can speak from experience that those things are best left in the hands of professionals. Beware.

This razor has a classic design, made of very high quality stainless steel, and is heftier than it looks. It's not a cheap knockoff - not in any way.

I bought this along with a 100-count box of Personna double-edged blades ( and combined, it's a superb shave. Please note, gentlemen, that it's a lot harder to nick yourself with a razor like this. But your grandfather used one like this, and if it didn't make him look good, you wouldn't be here. Follow the logic.

Finally, something that's not a complaint, just an observation. The handle on this razor is significantly shorter than the zillion-blade cartridge razor you're probably used to. See attached photo for comparison. That, combined with the weight of the steel, means you'll have a (short) period of adjustment. But you'll quickly learn that the short handle is intentional - you'll get better balance and control of the razor.

If you want a classic shave, this is the way to go. I'm not saying this as post-icon retro hipsterism, but simply as a dude who enjoys a good, close shave.

I've shaved with electric and disposable razors for decades. I have recently used the 3 and 4 blade wonders for as long as they've been out. I've never been satisified with them. Hard to clean, seem to dull fast.

I recall my dad had a similar razor to this Merkur when I was a kid. I decided to buy it and give it a try. Wow, what a difference. Close shave first time. Didn't have to go back over areas, it was a BREEZE to clean! Keeping the blad clean and dry seems to be a cinche with this. You have to shave a LOT slower and take your time. I'll have to get used to that. But, amazing.

About this model in particular. After all these years using the 3 and 4 blade models, I've been used to longer handles. This has a shorter handle. It has a good feel, nice weight to it, but my next razor like this will be the long handle. The models I remember my dad using had a twist release on the bottom of the handle. These are the "butterfly open" razors. This is not. With this model, the handle unscrews from the top and separates into three pieces for you to change out the blades. This is not a good or bad comment, just a comment so you are aware of that. It's simple, not much to break. I give this a 5 star. Very very pleased! I'll NEVER go back to those cartridge razors. HUGE waste of money. Buy a safety razor!

Hey, what can I say? Merkur Classic D.E. razor is just that..A CLASSIC! If you are new to double edge razors "wet shaving" consider this but in the HD version (heavier). You can view everything you need to know by visiting youtube and by searching "wet shaving". Their you will find many good informational videos on this subject. One of my favorite posters is a guy named mantic59. Once you learn, and practice this lost art, you will find that these razors are the absolute best for your skin, beard reduction and pocket book. With the avg 5 blade disposable costing about 3-$5 dollars, you will be pleased to discover that not only does this razor give a better-more comfortable shave, but it will cost you about $.50 cents per week on blades. Lots of blade options (buy online or WalMart) Feather, crystal, Derby etc, etc. Hey, and don't forget the shave brush and cream..lots of good stuff. Men should/need to shave every why not have fun and enjoy it?
