The Merkur 1904 Classic Safety Razor is a German made replica of the original Gillette classic razor. The razor is elegantly designed and made of nickel plated chrome. Its open ended teeth gives a close shave and is great for thicker beards. It is a three piece razor that is easy to clean and the blades are very easy to replace.

The razor is low cost, but high quality craftmanship that will last for many years. This razor is a pleasure to shave with and an excellent choice for starters. It is also great for travels.  Its 3’’ short handle and weight makes it perfect to glide over your face without any pressure and gives close, smooth shaves.

Merkur “1904” Classic 9.0 out of 10 based on 1 ratings

One Review »

  • by Mister Moo on May 8, 2014

    Now 110 years since the three piece open comb Gillette “1904” first hit the skin, Merkur reminds us of it’s simplicity, grace and effectiveness. Here is a mildly aggressive razor that will shave easily under its own weight, clean up in moment and outlast most of the people who buy them. No batteries, bells, whistles or circuitry. No DVD to explain how to use it. Just some nicely plated steel and the modern DE blade of your choice.

    Although happily shaving daily with a straight razor, I bought a Merkur Classic 41 (1904) open comb for the option of a faster shave and, maybe, a little better finish on my neck. The Merk and an Astra blade delivered. Quick handling and easy in the tight spots like a sports car – profoundly clean shaving down the cheeks. Two passes in five minutes made a darn fine shave; three was cleaner still.

    I found the open comb a breeze to zoom around with. Nothing dicey or unexpected. It’s just a fine shaver for anyone wanting quality and ease for less than a wallet full of money. Underrated performer.

What do you think about the Merkur “1904” Classic?
