Launched in Autumn 2018, the Merkur 27001 benefits from a real cow horn handle.
The handle is slightly longer than most at 98mm and this additional length seems to add to the overall balance of the razor, it's one of those razors that feels absolutely perfect in the hand.

The handle features a chrome plated butt end which protects the horn handle and doubles up as a finger rest while you shave.
This is a three piece razor, made in Solingen, Germany where Merkur has been based for over 100 years.

As the horn handle is natural, each handle will vary in colour, some will be darker than others and some will feature big variances in tone and grain. All handles are lathe turned and polished by a Merkur craftsman in Germany.

Match up with this Merkur stand or this Muhle stand, these stands are compatible with the vast majority of shaving brushes.
This superb faux horn shaving brush with new the generation, synthetic fibres is a great match for the Merkur razor.

The Merkur 27001 cow horn handle razor comes in a Merkur branded box which contains one complimentary Merkur safety razor blade.

Handle Length: 98mm
Weight: 70g

Compatible with all Safety Razor Blades including Feather, Merkur and Wilkinson Sword.

The handle is topped off with a chrome plated metal butt which is an excellent counter-weight to the head and a handy finger rest while you shave.

This is a bold move by Merkur as they have previously stuck to metal alloy handles. What they have produced with the 27001 is a beautiful razor that will deliver a close yet comfortable shave. Suitable for beginners and experienced users of safety razors.
