Description

The Merkur 1904 Open Comb Razor is great for tough, coarse or heavy beards. The open tooth head offers more exposure to the blade and is therefore slightly more aggressive than a regular closed comb/safety-bar razor. While this model is best suited to someone with a little experience wielding a double edge razor, there is no reason why it can't be used by a beginner. The handle is otherwise identical to the Merkur 1904 and it comes in a stylish chrome plated finish. Made in Solingen, Germany and covered by a 2 Year Australian Warranty.

For a limited time, this razor includes a FREE Blade Sampler Pack to get you started. Replacement blades sold separately.

Fantastic razor for beginners Review by: Martin 14/02/2017

This was my first DE razor as I am just starting out in wet shaving.

The razor has a solid build and is great value for the price. It is easy to use and has nice detailing on the handle. The overall size of the razor is quite small so this is perfect for someone who is just starting out.

Replacing the razor is simple and the handle unscrews quite easily.
Nice looking Razor, however, can't get a close shave! Review by: Anthony 14/10/2013

This was my second DE razor purchase (having purchased the Closed Comb).

It looks and feels great! I simply love the style of it all.

The only down side I find is that the Razor Blade sits right on the "open comb", which means your angle has to be spot on! I find that I get mild shaves from this razor (meaning its not that aggressive).

As an added bonus, you will know when your angle is off, as you will have "Stripes" from the teeth in your shaving cream if your angle is incorrect, which can help perfect your technique.

Overall nice razor, but I prefer the closed comb version over this one.
Excellent razor! Review by: Steve 24/09/2013

My research indicated that Open Comb razors (such as the 1904) were more "aggressive" than closed comb razors (such as the Merkur HD). I would say based on my limited experience that is true. However, this particular razor for some reason sits more towards the mild end of the spectrum.

I found that my face liked the razor almost instantly. The first few shaves were close and comfortable, and you can't ask for more than that.

I also found that this razor is TINY! It's much smaller than you think it will be! I don't have large hands, so keeping a hold of this razor and manouverability are a cinch for me.

Overall I would say this great razor is suitable for a beginner because it's easy to learn technique with but honestly, any shaver, regardless of experience, will be able to get a fine shave with this.

I have heard some minor gripes about the handle. Looking at it you might think that it might not be that great in the clinches, but even with wet fingers, in the middle of a shave, I have yet to lose grip.

What's more, it looks great!

Punches above it's weight Review by: Joel 17/07/2011

I've been using this razor in my rotation for a few weeks now and it's quickly becoming my favourite.

I love it's classic styling and the simplicity of the open comb head, which, despite what I had expected, makes for a very mild shave.

The reason I purchased this razor initially was for it's look. Unlike most other razors you'll find the 1904 has a nickel plating which gives it a unique finish. Its not as bright as chrome and has a slightly bronze appearance. The handle also features a nice embossed pattern which adds to the classic style as well as reducing slip.

Overall the 1904 is similar in size and weight to the classic HD but has a more refined feel. The open comb head, I find, is very mild and has a "smooth" quality.

Although one of the least expensive in the Merkur range this is still a high quality razor.
