MERKUR 1896 - classic razors
as modern as ever

Immerse yourself in the world of traditional shaving

Our mission is to provide you with a clean and comfortable shaving experience — proven tradition, superior design made in Germany since 1896.

As modern as ever

Since the beginning of the 20th century, we stand for quality and durability with our MERKUR safety razors. Then as now, the safety razor enables a comfortable, safe and cost-effective shave. Why should we build a 5 or 6 blade razor when the advantages of a blade outweigh?

A razor for all purposes

The safety razor offers you a wide range of applications - from the classic facial shave to the body hair shave to intimate shaving. Even longer or thicker hair can be mastered by our safety razors with ease, without sacrificing the protection and comfort of a traditional razor.

It's your choice!

Safety razors with a closed comb are perfect for the gentle daily shave. With an open comb, you also shave long or particularly dense body and beard hair thoroughly. The slant bar razor is ideal for unruly hair. With our safety razors with adjustable blade gap, you can adjust the thoroughness and gentleness individually.

Made in Germany

Our MERKUR safety razors are manufactured in Germany and offer complete corrosion protection and outstanding durability thanks to the zinc die casting process. In addition to these features, you can choose between heavy or light razors with different handle lengths. Many of our safety razors are available in a variety of options, such as bright chrome, matt chrome, gold or black - you decide!

Comfortable and hygienic

With the replaceable Double-Edge razor blades you can shave thoroughly and hygienically. A common cause of pimples and razor bumps are bacteria and germs on the blade and blade gaps. Our razors are designed so that you can easily clean them and replace the interchangeable blade with a new one at a low cost.

Durable and sustainable

Our MERKUR safety razors are not only comfortable to use but have also been a symbol of sustainability and durability for decades. They are made entirely of metal and designed for long-term use. The stainless steel double edge exchangeable razor blades are fully recyclable.

Simple and safe

A MERKUR safety razor is simple to operate. First, moisturize your skin with warm water so that your hair can soften. Then you lather up your face or body part with shaving cream or shaving soap well. After a few minutes, you set your razor and stroke it straight and gentle over the skin.

For a long life!

The cleaning of a MERKUR is done quickly. After shaving, you rinse off your MERKUR under running warm water and free it from soap and hair residues. For thoroughgoing cleaning, you can disassemble the razor and, if necessary, clean it with detergent and a brush. Then you dry the MERKUR with a cloth.

The most important equipment

You will need replaceable double edge razor blades for your razor. It's adequate to change the blades after 5-8 shaves. For a particularly firm lather, we recommend a shaving brush and a high-quality shaving soap. With this equipment, you will have a gentle and thorough shave.
