Merkur 50c Progress Adjustable Chrome Closed Comb DE Safety Razor
The MERKUR 500 Progress stands for maximum variability. Even back in the 1950s, it was one of the first planes with an adjustable blade gap. Since you also adjust the angle of the razor blade in this way, you can adjust the thoroughness of the shave to your own personal taste. With the short handle you gain freedom of movement on complex parts of the face and body.

The head of the plane is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process, as this enables very precise manufacturing tolerances and complex shapes. In order to ensure a comfortable weight distribution, we only use brass for the handle. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design.
The ability to rotate the handle adjusts the distance between the blade and the comb and adjusts the thoroughness of the shave to your personal preferences. Thanks to the numbering, you can easily find your preferred position again. For example, you have the option of working long hair with a large blade gap, while the daily face shave can be done with a gentle blade setting.
