The MERKUR 38C razor is one of our heavyweights in the product range. Longtime fans also call it MERKUR barber pole. It owes its nickname to the characteristic shape of its ribbed handle, which was designed in the style of a barber pole. The non-slip and heavy weight handle allows you to guide the blade easily and accurately. The head of the safety razor is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process since it creates instruments with maximum precision even for complex shapes. In order to ensure a comfortable weight distribution, Merkur only use brass for the handle. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design. A safety razor with a closed comb is the all-rounder for classic wet shaving. Intuitively, you will feel the best shaving angle for your safety razor and immediately achieve ideal shaving results. The generous blade gap allows high soap flow protecting the razor head from clogging with cut hair or lather residue.
