The MERKUR 39C razor is a slant bar razor for wiry and dense beards. Due to its heavy weight and slant bar head, it can handle even the most difficult tasks easily and thoroughly. It’s no wonder that fans call it “the sledgehammer”. With the barber pole-shaped, ribbed handle, you have it safely and comfortably in your hand.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. Slant bar razors are characterized by the fact that the comb and top plate are twisted against each other along the longitudinal axis. The blade is therefore very rigid and gets a sharper shaving angle. Used with focus and care, you will achieve extraordinary shaving results. The large blade gap of the closed head allows good lather flow and resists clogging.
