The Merkur 15C has a shorter handle than most Merkur safety razors but it is still comfortable and easy to handle. The handle is made from galvanized brass and has a textured grip so you can easily control the flow of the razor on your skin.
It has a three-piece assembly where the comb and top plate screw into the handle. The plate and comb protect your skin from the blade while still allowing you to have an effective, close shave. Also, the design of the comb means that it should not get clogged and thus make it an ideal choice if you have longer, thicker body hair.
