The Merkur Long Handle Classic Safety Razor is identical to the Classic, but comes with a longer, 10cm (4 inch) handle to accomodate those with larger hands. Like its little brother, this would make a fine razor for a beginner. The generous blade gap allows high soap flow protecting the razor head from clogging with cut hair or lather residue.

Good started razor, and forgiving

Bought this as my first DE razor thinking there would be a bloodbath. Watched HEAPS of videos from Geofatboy. I have been very happy with this for the last 3 weeks. The most smooth shave was with Feather after the first day and the most comfortable so far is Derby Extra (Green pack). The longer handle helps a transition from cartridge shaving, I am ready to move onto adjustables with 2 Qshave razors, one being the Futur knockoff and another design. I also bought a Ming shi adjustable butterfly. Advice to new people, get and alum block helps make irritation a thing of the past. I'm doing a 3 pass shave daily and have no nicks, bumps or irritation. a Merkur progress is on my buy list too. Postage is fast from this mob and the packing is A1.

easty to use

fits well in the hand, easy to grip and use. no issues at all.


Recently made the switch to this razor and I am so pleased I did! So much better on my skin and a lot cheaper than supermarket razors

Only one minor drawback, otherwise excellent

IF I have the correct model, this is a three piece, the top and the comb, with blade between, fasten onto the one piece handle. The issue I have is tightening, as this requires holding the assembly between the thumb and forefinger on the ends (for obvious reasons), some small bloodless incisions result. I have not resorted to pliers, a vice or other tools, yet. Someone smarter than I can no doubt educate me on the correct method...

Great quality, safe to use

I purchased this razor after using a different brand razor for a few years. The quality is fantastic and well balanced. Initially I didn’t think it gave me as close a shave, but found with the Feather blades it gave me a great shave (normally use Astra) and I’m getting longer usage out of the blades. No nicks at all and I don’t need to concentrate as much as my previous razor. Highly recommended.
