What is the lifespan of a Merkur safety razor?
Merkur safety razors are among the best-made razors available on the market today. These razors are well constructed of solid steel and plated with either chrome or gold, with the exception of a few special edition razors produced occasionally. These razors are quality tools capable of lasting decades of daily use. To ensure your razor’s longevity, thoroughly clean your razor after every use. This protects the plating from being damaged by rust and keeps your razor looking good. Even if your plating becomes damaged, your Merkur razor can be restored (see Gillette Slim Adjustable Safety Razor Brought Back to Life). A Merkur safety razor is a $40 - $60 investment that can likely last a lifetime.
