Merkur is a German brand with classic razors for men. This brand is also called Merkur Solingen sometimes because of the German town where they have been producing safety razors since 125 years.
The founder was Emil Hermes, but the name Hermes was already registered, so he picked the Roman version Merkur. Already in 1900, they started producing the Merkur Safety Razor. The design was changed a bit in 1935, but since then the Merkur Razor remained the same.
In the decades that followed more Merkur Double Edge Safety Razors were designed and made available. Multiple patents have been registered over the years.
In 1996 a new owner changed the brand name to Merkur Stahlwaren. Today Merkur is a very well-known brand in the world of wet shaving because of their very functional and high quality safety razors.
Merkur and Moquer
In 2021 Moquer started to focus more on classic razors and Merkur Solingen was at the top of the list. Germany has a long tradition of classic shaving products with high quality products and Merkur is undeniably one of them.
Merkur has a great product line with various razors at different price points, so Moquer was happy to offer such a wide range of safety razors to help men pick their favourite double edge safety razor to enhance their wet-shaving experience.

All Merkur Razors that Moquer offers in the shop are double edge safety razors that protect your skin while shaving. Every Merkur Razor is different and has different properties, like different lengths, weights, and finishes.
One of the most popular products is the Merkur 34c, but there are other popular options as well. Another interesting option is the Merkur 37c Slant Bar. When you really want to treat yourself, you can have a look at the luxurious Merkur Futur options.
