Description

Merkur 42C Double Edge Safety Razor offers you an effortless introduction to the exciting world of traditional wet shaving. Thanks to the closed comb, you will intuitively find the right setting angle of the cutting edge to start your shave. The blade gap was carefully chosen so that the safety razor is optimally suited for shaving both facial hair and body hair.

WHY YOU NEED THIS

Our high quality safety razors will help you:

  • Easily achieve a close shave: a more beginner-friendly option than a straight razor, safety razors still deliver outstanding results when compared to cartridge razors
  • Shave exactly how you like: a range of options gives endless opportunity for customisation
  • Look after your skin: a single blade creates less drag on the skin, reducing ingrown hairs and irritation
  • Save time: safety razors don’t take long to use once you’ve mastered the technique
  • Save money: blade replacements can cost as little as 15c when bought in bulk
  • Reduce your impact on the environment: the blade itself is all that gets replaced, no plastic waste
DETAILS

Material: Brass handle, die-casted zinc razor head, galvanized surfaces, bright chrome-plated
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, we only use brass for the handle. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design.

Product Details: Closed comb, straight
A safety razor with a closed comb is the all-rounder for classic wet shaving. Intuitively, you will feel the best shaving angle for your safety razor and immediately achieve ideal shaving results. The generous blade gap allows high soap flow protecting the razor head from clogging with cut hair or lather residue.

Locking system: Short screw, three-piece safety razor

Handle diameter: 1,2

How to use:
First, you should wash your face with warm water. This opens the pores and makes shaving easier. Start by generously coating your skin with shaving lather. Give the lather 5 minutes to soften the beard hair. Then, you set your safety razor at an angle of 30 - 45° and guide it over your face without pressure. To free the razor head from cut hair, simply hold it under the tap every few strokes.

Maintenance:
The care of a safety razor is very easy. After use, simply wash out the razor thoroughly and remove lather residue and cut hair. A nail brush and a hair shampoo or dish soap help with stubborn dirt. Lastly, dry it with a towel and it’s ready to go for your next shave. When changing razor blades, check all of the parts for a tight fit. You can find more information here.

CARE INFO
Like most of your tools, a safety razor will perform better and last longer the better you look after it. Dissembling the razor and cleaning with an old toothbrush is recommended, the more the better. A soak in highly diluted vinegar will work wonders also.

It is also recommended to take out the razor blade after each shave, this will release any build up of soap and stubble. Having a magnet handy is a great way to keep your razor blades between shaves.
