The MERKUR razor 39C is the heavy duty razor for hard and thick beards. Due to its high weight and the torsion head, it masters even the toughest tasks easily and thoroughly. It's not for nothing that fans affectionately call him the “sledgehammer”. With the help of its grooved handle, which has been designed based on a barber pole, you have it safely and comfortably in your hand.
The head of the plane is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process, as this enables very precise manufacturing tolerances and complex shapes. In order to ensure a comfortable weight distribution, we only use brass for the handle. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design.
Torsion planes are characterized by the fact that the comb and cover are twisted against each other along the longitudinal axis. As a result, the blade is very rigid and has a more acute angle of attack. With a little concentration, you will achieve extraordinary shaving results. The very large gap in the blade of the closed head allows good soap flow and is difficult to clog.
