Merkur Open Comb Travel Razor

Item Description

I recently acquired this compact Merkur travel razor from WCS. At $28 its priced very low compared to other sites I visited. The only model they had in stock at the time was the open comb so why not. Its extremely compact(smaller then a Feather Portable cased) and came in a leather case that seemed very appealing to me. I had to try it out like any new toy I get. If you have very large hands I don't think this will work for you. The is 4 pieces with the handle screwed together and then attaches to the 2 piece head. This particular head is the older style and flatter. The shaves were superb and using a used India Wilkinson blade was excellent. Smooth and close. The case will even hold one or two blades when closed. So I am totally satisfied with the razor and can't wait to take it on a trip. Incidentally its 100% chromed & total length about 3" .

Pros: Takes hardly any room.
Cons: The grip is very short.
I received this as a gift, hence the price rating of "10." This is a great little travel razor. It breaks down into four pieces and once out in its travel pouch, takes up hardly any room in a travel kit.

The shave is very good. It is on the mild side but loaded with my favorite blade it gives a DFS every time. I could shave with this every day if I had to. I gave it a "1" in the Adjustability department because it doesn't adjust, but that in no way detracts from its efficiency.

If it has a true "con" it would be that the handle is quite short. A person with large hands may find this to be a negative attribute, but it is a travel razor and saving space is part of the game.

All in all I think this a great product. It is made very well, saves space, is light, and shaves great to boot! I never leave home without it.
