The Merkur 42C is a classically inspired, double-edge safety razor featuring a vintage aesthetic combined with hundreds of years of German metal-crafting expertise.
A safety razor with a closed comb is the standard for classic wet shaving. You will intuitively feel the right angle for your razor, ensuring a close shave. The generous blade gap enables soap to flow through and protects the razor head from clogging with cut hair or foam residue, making it ideal for shaving facial hair as well as body hair.
Safety razors use blades that are easily replaceable and affordable, making them a plastic-free, low-waste alternative to disposable razors. When you switch to a safety razor like Merkur's 42C, you save money and help keep plastic out of our landfills and oceans!

Use: Start by washing your face with warm water; this will open the pores and make shaving easier. Generously cover your skin with shaving cream. Allow the cream a few moments to soften the hair. Place the razor plane at a 30 - 45° angle and guide it over your face without applying pressure. Rinse under tap water as needed to clear the blade.
Care: After use, wash the razor thoroughly to remove cut hair and soap residue. A nail brush can help if needed. Dry with a clean cloth. When changing the razor blade, check that all individual parts are securely in place.
