The Merkur 33C is a short handle double edged safety razor. The handle measures 3 inches/ 7.7cm from top to bottom.. The short handle (shorter than that on a disposable razor) gives you excellent control for a close shave. The Merkur 33C handle with a diamond etched pattern ensures a non slip grip. The razor is well balanced and does the work for you. Traditionally, Merkur razors come in three pieces, the handle and the two plates. The plates unscrew from the handle and the blade is inserted between the two plates.The razor body is easily cleaned under warm water.
There’s a good reason that Merkur safety razors are one of the most popular brands. Merkur Solingen has a history that dates back to 1896, when Emil Hermes registered the brand in Solingen, Germany.
We currently carry two types of Merkur safety razors. We carry the short handle Merkur 33C and the long handle 23C.
***While these razors are permitted in carry-on bags, the blades, themselves, are not.
