The Merkur 27C offers something different to the traditional metal-finish of other Merkur safety razors. This is because it has an African Cowhorn handle. It looks fantastic and has a subtle gradient colouration from top to bottom. The handle has also been smoothly finished, but it still offers an excellent grip and balance.
The head is made from chrome-played brass and quickly unscrews from the handle. The closed comb design offers maximum safety too, and you have great control over your shave due to the design of the head and plates. If you aren’t a huge fan of all-metal razors, the Merkur 27C with its Cowhorn handle offers something unique.
