The Merkur Classic Open Comb Safety Razor is great for tough, coarse or heavy beards. The open tooth head offers more exposure to the blade and is therefore slightly more aggressive than a regular closed comb/safety-bar razor.While this model is best suited to someone with a little experience wielding a double edge razor, there is no reason why it can't be used by a beginner. The handle is otherwise identical to the Merkur Classic and it comes in a stylish chrome finish.

Excellent Razor, Thanks Men's Biz

Very happy with the Merkur 15C, super smooth and efficient. The build quality is great, comparable in size and construction to a Tech but with the advantage of the open comb.
Great experience shopping online with Men's Biz.

Good, but not great

I recently purchased this razor because I had been getting lazy lately and letting the stubble grow out a little long, a little too often. That led to me having to rinse out my main razor (34C) every 10mm stroke or so. That's not as much of a problem with this razor having an open comb and it does a mighty fine job of getting the mass of hair out of the way.

I don't know what it is about this razor though, maybe the weight or the size, but it's just not as enjoyable to shave with, even with short stubble and I can't get quite as good of a result.

It's a nice unit, and it does it's job adequately, but it'll always come in second place to the 34C.

Very happy with this razor

For an open comb razor this has got to be one of the most user friendly.
It is an open comb,but it's design makes it one of the less aggressive in this style.
It provides a great user experience and a closer shave than razors with a safety bar.
I really enjoy it's milder temperament.It also seems to function well with a range of different blades.
I have other open razors in my collection,but this is the one that is the most forgiving and yet still provides that extra close shave.If this were the only razor I owned,I'd be happy.

Great DE

One of the best purchases I've made in recent times. I should have discarded the cartridge setup a long time ago as my lazy shave alternative, as opposed to the straight razor. Very happy with this DE

Mild open comb, nice introduction to OC razors.

Despite being an open comb, the Merkur 15C feels very mild (at least on my skin).
I tried it with gentle (Lord, Big Ben) and sharp (Gillette SE and Polsilver) blades without getting any nick.
I'd recommend it to people who tend to have a heavy hand when shaving or are starting with open comb razors.
Very well finished (classic Merkur) and designed.
Good customer service by Mensbiz, as always.
