Slant bar razors are characterized by the fact that the comb and top plate are twisted against each other along the longitudinal axis. The blade is therefore very rigid and gets a sharper shaving angle. Used with focus and care, you will achieve extraordinary shaving results. The large blade gap of the closed head allows good lather flow and resists clogging.
The Merkur 39C 2-Piece double edge safety razor's design is durable, easy to clean and easy to use. It features an elegantly chromed open-comb slanted bar head with a standard fixed blade gap.
Merkur double edge safety razors offer the closest possible shave without the skin irritation sometimes experienced with multi-blade cartridge razor systems. Merkur razors are compatible with inexpensive recyclable double edge razor blades, saving you money while being.
