A short while back I wrote an article about Merkur’s line of DE razors. Most of them have been around for ages, with lots of information and reviews available with a simple search engine query. A few are relatively new though. One of the new breed, the Merkur 40, is an odd-looking razor with hardly any reviews available. I think it’s time to give the ’40 some love, particularly if you happen to fall into some specific circumstances.
