What is behind the Merkur design?
Can anyone explain why the majority of Merkur's razors have saw-like or tooth-like edges? I know that several of these models of razors are popular at B&B but they look a bit odd. As a kid growing up in the early 60s in NYC I became well-acquainted with the multitude of double-edged safety razors available at the time [i.e., Gillette, Schick, Wilkinson, Personna, etc].But I never saw that style of razor. They look like they may have originated during the Spanish Inquisition.
I ain't as good as I once was...but I'm as good once as I ever was.
