The ivory-colored plastic knob of the MERKUR 510 Progress is not just an optical gimmick - it allows you to adjust the blade gap and thus also the angle of the razor blade. The long handle not only increases ergonomics, but also helps you to reach remote parts of the body more easily.So there is nothing left to do with an individual and varied shave.
This is the best adjustable safety razor I have ever owned. Great German engineering. Infinitely adjustable from 1-5, with no steps, just a smooth adjustment. Perfect shave with any double edge blade. No scraping the skin, no nicks, no razor burn. Just a very smooth shave, that lasts me two days. I will not purchase anything but Merkur products from now on. I'm sold on Merkur engineering for life.

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.
