Merkur 45 Bakelite - Double Edge Safety Razor
Merkur's model 45 is a retro styled double edge safety razor made of bakelite. Bakelite is an old school plastic made of wood pulp, which was developed in 1907 and remained popular through the '50s. Merkur's 45 bakelite is exceedingly light, which makes it wildly popular amongst wetshaving aficionados when paired with a wickedly sharp and fresh blade. Merkur's 45 bakelite is also very affordable, the closed comb design will deliver a smooth shave with minimal irritation.
