The Merkur Progress Adjustable Safety Razor incorporates an innovative adjustable mechanism which allows you to change blade angle and depth. Twist the handle to choose from five blade settings, allowing you to achieve maximum comfort and an exceptionally close shave. Typically you will use a higher setting (for more blade exposure) for thicker parts of the beard and then go over with a lower setting for those tricky to reach places with more precision. To change blades you need to spin the adjustable part of the handle counter clockwise until you can remove the head, place a new blade in and re-insert / turn back into place.
Hand crafted by Merkur in Germany, the Progress is often considered by many to be the cream of the crop when it comes to adjustable Safety Razors and it’s not hard to see why. The chrome plating makes this razor look stunning and when you consider that it will last you a lifetime the price is quickly justified by the money you would save on cartridge razors!
This version of the Progress with the shorter handle is known as the 500C. We also supply the longer handle Merkur Progress version, known as the 510C, should you prefer a longer handle.
The Progress comes neatly presented in a Merkur box with a sample Merkur Super Double Edge Razor Blade.
