View Full Version : Is there a current Merkur like this one?
10-01-2011, 11:23 AM
I saw this nice razor on eBay, but it seems to be getting expensive.
It's a slant but with a three piece handle.
Does Merkur make a current one like this, with the short heavy handle in a three piece?

This is my favorite razor. It's a Merkur, I think it's vintage. Not a slant head, chrome top but silver plated handle. It just seems to have the right size, weight and is aggressive enough for me. I'm hoping to find a new one with a three piece setup.

Merkur currently makes a slant razor, but it is not a 3-piece razor.

I'm not an expert on Merkur's by any means (I've come to favor the Muhle's), but I believe that what you're looking for would be a Merkur 37c, seen here at royalshave... http://www.royalshave.com/p/401-009-00/merkur_heftyclassic_slant_37c.html I might be mistaken too, but I believe that what you've got as your current favorite is a 34c, and I think that the 37c is the same handle but with a slant head.
Edit: see like I said, I'm definitely not an expert, I didn't realize that the Merkur's were not 3 piece, if you're satisfied with your current favorite though and you want a slant, you might be happy with the 37c.

Looks like a Luna slant.
