View Full Version : Merkur Slant Bar Vs. Hoffritz Slant Bar
02-27-2006, 02:25 PM
Anybody out there have any suggestions? The next DE that I really want to get is a slant bar. I've seen both of the Merkur and the Hoffritz but, I'm wondering if there are any major differences between the two of these. I can find them both pretty easy however; I'm probably only going to have one slant bar in my collection and I just want the right one for me. If anyone could help out, I'd really be thankful.

Hi Rusty -
My understanding was that they were basically the same item. I thought that Hoffritz was just a re-branded Merkur(?).
I know that Austin and Joe Lerch both know quite a bit about them.

Rusty, Howard is correct. The Hoffritz brand is just rebranded from Merkur. They are one and the same.

Thanks guys...I feel a little better about the Merkur now. I was leaning that way anyhow.
Do you know where I could pick up a Hoffritz gold slant bar? I drool everytime I see pics of yours.

Rik, I think I picked mine up at www.rubylane.com . You have to periodically check out the site. Good luck.

Thanks for the info.
Maybe this is the place where buying power could come into play? Merkur (Dovo) makes a gold plated slant bar.. Do you think there is enough pent-up desire for a bling bling razor thing to make a B&B buy from our buds in Deutschland?
I'd be interested! :thumbup1:
