The Merkur 39C is a specialist safety razor due to its slant razor bar. This is perfect for dense and wiry beards and masses of untamed facial hair. The slanted bar head and heavy weight mean that you can easily tackle tough and thick facial hair with ease.
It also has a stylish handle that gives it the barber-pole name. The ribbed textured grip has a slanted barber-pole pattern that allows for an excellent and secure grip. The Merkur 39C disassembles into two parts – the handle with comb, and the top plate. This makes for incredibly easy cleaning and blade positioning. It is also made from durable materials including brass for the handle and die-casted zinc for the head.
