Merkur Model 180 Safety Razor Review


A Popular Comb Toothed 4″ 3-Piece Razor…

The Merkur 180 safety razor recently took the reins as the best selling safety razor on the market at this time

Let’s find out if it is truly worth getting… or if all these people buying it are just suckers….

Chrome Finish…

The razor has a nice chrome finish. I’ve read of one isolated report of the chrome flaking off. I personally had no issues after many shaves. It has the same slick and shiny finish that I’ve come to expect with most Merkur razors.

Long Handle…

The handle is a whopping 4″ long. If you’ve read any of my other safety razor reviews… you know I LOVE my long handles…

A long handle is a MUST if you have big hands like me. I feel like I’m shoveling snow with a spoon when I’m forced to test a short handled razor.

3-Piece and Combed Head…

I have a mixed opinion of 3-pieced razors vs butterfly razors. Sure, 3-piecers are easier to clean and repair… but I’m lazy and like the convenience of being able to switch blades with a twist of the base (check out the Parker 22R if you want a good butterfly open razor)…

Anyway, the Merkur 180 is composed of good, heavy parts. The combed head is great for beards and cleaning.

Ok Mark, I get it. It looks pretty… but how does this beast SHAVE?

Pardon my French, but this baby gives a DAMN good shave that’s smooth and close!

Merkur makes great German-made razors… and the Model 180 is no exception…

I love the long handle and comb toothed head (neutral about the 3-piece design)…

Altogether it’s a sturdy and pleasant looking razor that performs…
