The Merkur Classic 1904 Double-Edge Safety Razor gives your skin optimum protection from razor burn, yet still offers a smooth close shave. If you have sensitive skin then this is a good razor of choice for you. This wonderful shaver works well with all standard double edge blades.
Many people love the hexagonal handle because it offers a vintage look in a modern razor design. It's the same great shave as the famed 34C because it uses the exact same head design! The chrome plating gives a touch of class to your bathroom or shave den. And don't worry about the handle length - using a traditional DE razor means using your finger tips instead of your whole hand - think of it like holding a pencil or other fine instrument.
This is a great all around safety razor and we recommend it highly!

I am fairly new to the DE razor world. I was using a cheap Chinese DE razor and not good! Researched razors for a good while and decided on the Merkur C42 1904 and Razor Emporium's very own shaving soap! It's the best DAMN shave I ever had.
Love the barber shop sent!
I have been shaving since 1984 and I love this razor. As I mentioned it is my first DE razor and am quite happy with it. The handle initially seemed quite short but it makes sense when you use it. Build quality is very good and I quite frankly thought it would cost much more. The staff at RE is great and they pointed me in the right direction and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the time they took with me. I am an obsessive collector or accessories (watches, lighters, etc) and these razors will be my new hobby. Oh, and I like the shave, I am used to a 6 blade from the SCFM who are good guys and I like their business model but for me there is room for both in my bathroom.
