Started well over a century ago, Merkur came from the same world-renown steel production center as Dovo did: Solingen, Germany.

For decades, the two premium men’s razor manufacturers vied for top spot in their markets until the day came when Dovo extended an olive branch and bought out Merkur.

While Merkur is now an extension of Dovo, the commitment to quality remains. Men who prefer to wet shave can still enjoy the same quality in Merkur’s double-edge safety razors.
