Merkur Progress 500 is a 2 piece adjustable safety razor finished in chrome with a deeply fluted handle that delivers a wonderfully reassuring and comfortable grip.

The ivory-colored plastic knob of the Merkur 500 Progress is not just an optical gimmick - it allows you to adjust the blade gap and thus also the angle of the razor blade.  It has been introduced in 1955 and has been a legend since. It has settings of between 1 and 5 with half settings. The higher the number you dial up to, the closer the shave you will get. Some men will start off on number 1 or 2 and dial-up to finish off with a higher setting.

With the short handle you gain freedom of movement on complex parts of the face and body. Progress makes it possible to use any type of blades and relatively more cost effective ones since you can immediately adjust the aggressiveness of the blade by adjusting the setting.

Great design

Great designed and comfortable razor. The quality is there and I really like the adjustable feature. Unfortunately it came with no instructions and took me to a German site - luckily though the internet saves the day and I was able to figure it out with no hassle!

Great quality razor and even the blade by Merkur are top notch
