  • The Merkur 45 Double-Edge Safety Razor is a three-piece lightweight razor made from the early 20th century resin Bakelite. But unlike other Bakelite razors, the 45 is capable of delivering an amazing shave and has garnered rave reviews in the wet shaving community.

    Its head is not unlike that of the Merkur Progress; it bends the blade to a somewhat aggressive angle. Its mere 14 grams of weight and and companion carrying case make it excellent for travel.

    The razor will accept all standard double edged blades such as Derby, Merkur and Feather. Many of our customers have found that purchasing a razor blade sampler with their first DE razor offers them the opportunity to find the suitable blade for their skin type, style of shaving and razor type, before making a purchase of a large quantity of blades.

    Weight: 0.5 oz (14g)
    Length: 3 1/4" (8 cm)
    Made in Germany

Great razor.

Frankly, the one I got looks like it is in better shape than the one in the picture above. The bakelite is smooth and well formed, no rough spots on it at all. It is light.... no like, incredibly light, and the blade angle it provides is nice and aggressive but the razor aperture keeps it from being over exposed. It gave me a quick, smooth shave with no effort at all. Good for in the shower, or for travel. I highly recommend these.

Awesome travel razor

Great razor and has a nice little case that holds a pack of razor blades awesome for traveling but it is on the light side but it is plastic

Bought this for travel, only to end up walking around Venice with numerous cuts every time I used this thing. I was bleeding like B grade slasher movie! Using my usual Feather blade, just could not stop nicking myself. I think it had to do with the gap between the base plate and the blade. Immediately found a shop and bought a Merkur Classic 1904. Problem solved. I now travel with the leather sleeve holding my razor.

German quality

At first it was difficult to pair it with a blade that would work for me well,but then,when I found the right blade it proved to be a very solid performer.As for aggressivenss,I put it right in between the two Muhles.

Bought this razor on sale, and was very pleased with the compactness and the travel case. I have not been pleased with the shaves yet, however, and find I consistently nick myself. I will be searching for another travel razor.
