A must have for fans of heavy weight safety razors! The Merkur 43C features a bulbous shaped matte stainless steel handle that with release knob simliar to that of the popular 38C Barberpole model razor. The 5.02 oz overall weight provides a great hefty feel in the hand and a great secure grip handle. Uses any standard double edge blade.

I am a semi newbie because I first learned how to shave using a Gillett back in the early 1980s.
And like most we thought raking the triple/quad/lord knows how many edges they can come up with, razors across our face.
Back to the razor (Heavy)!
But not that bad (after you get use to it).
Couple of nicks first two or three times around. Not the razor just me relearning and just practice.
Very well built and attractive.
Every shave (which I look forward to now)is getting much better. Not enough 000000S in smooth ("MASH" Potter) to describe the shave you get.
Got to say thanks to Lee.
Personally called me at home!
Before leaving to visit his parents (several states away) to make sure that my order was processed and if I had any questions.
Ordering from Lee's again?
