merkur solingen germany
The name Merkur has long been synonymous with quality and precision and is the same company as Dovo, their straight razor division. From basic razor heads and handles to the futuristic, and everything in between. You are safe to count on Merkur for your daily shave.

Merkur...German...Precision. Forget Jagger or Muhle (wait a minute...they're both the same). If you are starting out, buy a 23C or a 34C. If you want to try a slant, then go for their slant. Forget the stupidity of an adjustable. Otherwise, start looking at all-stainless...and be done with the incessant trying to find the best...the best IS all-stainless.
Notes on our reviews:
...we are not attempting to portray every product that we review with glowing praise and self-serving promotion, we are attempting to give you our honest opinions. As such, if we do begin gushing out praise, then it's a heartfelt and based upon our personal likes and proclivities. Otherwise expect clinical and objective comments or, in the worse cases, criticisms when necessary.
...the opinions and views expressed in our reviews are provided as yet one more piece of the never-ending shavers puzzle. You are encouraged to seek out as many discussions and other reviews as possible, rife on the shaving forms, and to explore the manufacturer's own websites for precise specifications and descriptions. Although we do our absolute best to provide accurate information as well as our own observations, we are most likely sure to make a few mistakes, here and there, and we will most assuredly keep vigilant in keeping those to a minimum.
...you are always welcome to call us for further or more in-depth discussion of any of our products.
