The Merkur 43C is one of the heaviest and most durable Merkur razors thanks for the engine-turned stainless-steel handle. The handle is chunk and offers a superior grip and balance. It also has a barber-pole design with a chrome-plated cap on the top and bottom.
For blade insertion, the top plat simply unscrews from the bottom/handle. You can then easily insert a blade and clean the razor after each use. This safety razor has the added benefit of the chrome-plating which makes it more durable and resistant to wear than some other Merkur models. The bottom chrome-plated handle cap is also engraved with the Merkur logo.
