I often get asked “what’s the difference between the current double edge safety razors manufacturers?”
Let me first say, each company makes quality razors. They also offer several different styles to meet your needs and price range.
This leads me to the MAIN difference… they are manufactured in different countries!
There are currently NO company manufacturing safety razors in the United States.
So where are the most popular razors made?
Merkur Razors – Made In Germany -
Generally, Merkur razors are the most popular because they are manufactured in Germany. People have this general perception that anything made in Germany must be superior, whether it is true or not.
Parker Razors – Made In India -
Parker razors are manufactured in India. They have a good reputation and many like the ornate handles and fine craftsmanship offered from India.
Weishi Razors – Made In China -
Weishi razors are manufactured in China. Many people are unfairly biased against anything made in China.
You have to keep in mind that since the labor costs are lower in China, you can often get a same quality safety razor at a lower price than if it was manufactured elsewhere.
So in conclusion, each company makes quality safety razors available in different designs and prices.
Just like buying a car, you need to decide where you prefer to have your safety razors manufactured at.
No matter which you pick, you’re sure to get a high quality product that will save you hundreds of dollars and give you a better shave than those ridiculously overpriced multi-bladed cartridge razors!
