Some people prefer the control that an extra-long handle gives. This is exactly what the Merkur 24C offers. It is essentially an extended version of the popular 23C but has an extra-long handle. As a result, you have better control to follow the curvatures of your face.
Despite the longer handle, it still has an excellent grip. This is achieved by the diamond-patterned knurl that goes up the length of the handle. In terms of materials, the handle is made from brass, and the head from die-casted zinc. The metals are also galvanized for extra durability. The Merkur 24C also has a simple three-part design in which the top plate screws into the handle.
