Handle with care! A mean yet highly rewarding tool for tough beards and sensitive skin!
The Merkur 39C, the the long handled version of the 37C, is a serious bit of kit designed for the more experienced DE shaver for an extremely close shave. The slanted head exposes more of the blade at one end and is very similar to the cutting angle of a straight (cut-throat) razor. This means it is ideal for cutting through heavy beards and tough stubble. It is also highly regarded as one of the best DE razors for sensitive skin sufferers because of the way it shaves. It's heavy head means that the experienced shaver only has to use light pressure to get the best shave of his life!
