Merkur 45 Bakelite Double-Edge Safety Razor with Case

In stock, ready to ship

Please notify me when this item becomes available
  • 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

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.

Great Razor

This has become my daily driver. I travel for work so bought this to have a travel razor to take with me, but I loved it so much I started using it at home too. Comes with some Merkur blades as a bonus.

Great travel or general use razor

This is my first safety razor after a long hiatus, and it meets my needs - packs easily and does not feel cheap. The bakelite is a step up from modern plastics and has a bit of vintage charm of its own. I bought a sampler set to go with it and enjoying the "Fresh" brand as the top choice so far.


Unique Razor

A very light razor even lighter than I had expected it to be even after reading the reviews, for me I thought it was quite aggressive but gave me a very close shave without any skin damage. I would also suggest that if one is new to DE shaving that to tread lightly with this razor initially until one gets a feel for it would be a good idea. I bought it for my travel bag and for that it is perfect, has its own plastic case and spare blade storage. I bought it on sale and it is well worth the money.
