Product Description

Merkur 985C Double Edge (DE) Travel Safety Razor


The Merkur 985C Double Edge (DE) Safety Razor is a beautifully crafted and ingenious 4 piece travel razor. The quality which is synonymous with Merkur is evident in every detail... The shorter length handle is chromed brass with precision milling along the whole section which allows for a superior grip even when hands are wet. The matching base allows for easy blade swapping and also adds the finishing touch to an eye catching razor. The razor sits comfortably in the hand. and the weight is evenly distributed along the length of the handle, achieving a well balanced easy to use razor. The handle is topped with a plated brass head which is finished in Polished Chrome and features an open comb to accommodate longer growths. The razor splits down into four pieces, with the handle unscrewing to two halves. The razor then packs neatly into a small leather travel case which tucks into your washbag, taking up minimal space. An elegant looking razor and a popular favourite. Made in Germany (Solingen).

Product is also supplied with a FREE Pack of Astra Platinum Double Edge Razor blades with a retail price of £2.95.

  1. Excellent Little Razor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2021

    Superb little travel razor that packs down into a neat little pouch. This is a genuine Merkur product and is good quality. Gives an excellent shave when you get used to the balance with the slightly smaller handle. Really pleased with the razor and the service from Maguires. Delivery was quick and well packaged in a sturdy small box. 5 stars only because I couldn't give more.

  2. Merkur open-comb travel razor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2020

    With a two-part handle, all the bits will easily fit inside a matchbox with room to spare for a small piece of soap and a few styptic matches. The ultimate travel razor.

    The head is the standard Merkur open-comb used on several other Merkur razors. On the Badger & Blade aggressiveness scale this is rated at a moderate, user-friendly 2/10. It's still quite capable of a BBS though. It may be a travel razor but you won't have to compromise on a good shave.

    A mild open-comb design is very versatile and should handle just about any kind of shaving task. I've sliced through a week-and-a-half old beard with no problems, and no clogging. Head-shaving? Compared to the electric shavers I've used in the past, this gets the job done quicker, easier and closer.

    The handle is quite short but I think it feels really nice.

    If you're used to a long handle you might have to change your technique but this could be a positive not a negative. Hold it with one finger pushed up on the underside of the head. This gives you direct feedback from the business end and very fine control.

    I can't fault it - so five stars.
