Merkur of Solingen have been producing high quality safety razors and shaving equipment for over seventy years. Regardless of whether you prefer a thorough clean shave or want to give your beard the right contours, when you purchase Merkur safety razor products you acquire a piece of highest shaving culture for a cultivated start to the day. Merkur safety razors and double edge razors offer the right model and appropriate accessories for every beard type, thus ensuring the best conditions for an effective wet shave.
Merkur safety razors are known for their excellent finish and quality engineering and they are considered by many to be the best quality safety razors available today. A Merkur safety razor is designed to last you a life time. Their flagship safety razor is the Merkur 34C Heavy Duty (or HD for short) which is praised by both experienced and novice wet shavers for giving a fantastic shave that is both close and comfortable. This is by far our most popular safety razor.
All Merkur safety razors use double edge razor blades (you can view our full range of double edge razor blades here). By shaving with a single blade you will reduce the irritation that some men can get during shaving as well as saving a lot of money when compared to modern cartridge razor blades. Razor blade prices start from only 15p per blade! If you have never used a safety razor before then we advise you to read through our Ultimate Guide to Safety Razors which explains how to use a safety razor and what the main differences are between the different razors available.
Merkur razors are available with a chrome finish and some models are also available in gold and satin finish. The Progress and Futur models are adjustable which allows you to set the blade gap on the razor. The higher the setting, the more the razor blade is exposed to the skin which results in a more aggressive shave. This allows you to set the razor to give you the closest shave possible without getting any irritation.
Due to high demand, Merkur currently have a waiting time of 9 months which means we can sometimes be out of stock of certain razors for long periods of time. Although we have frequent deliveries, they are unable to give us any timescales for when razors will be available again.
