Product Description

The MR3 is a heavy, short, thick knurled handle razor with a satin finish solid stainless steel handle.

Quality materials and a great price – it is difficult to go wrong with a Maggard Razors DE. These traditional double edge safety razors are ideal for the beginner, while seasoned wet shavers will appreciate the high quality handles and smooth shaving heads.

Heads: We now offer 4 different heads to choose from. Each comes with its own shaving characteristics.

  1.  The V3 Standard (2): This head is available in Chrome, Gray, or Black Finish. Best for beginners, this head offers a mild-moderate shave with excellent efficiency. Shaves just as well as many of the big name brands with no noticeable difference in quality
  2. The V2 Open Comb: Another great option for beginners, the V2 Open comb shaves nearly identical to the Parker 24C/26C heads. Super comfortable, and super efficient – this heads gives the results of the aggressive razors without any of the harshness.
  3. The V3A Aggressive: This head is available in Gray, or Black Finish. Enthusiasts and those looking for a more aggressive razor to plow through the toughest of beards may opt for the V3A – a highly efficient shaving head that offers plenty of blade exposure. With some time and skill we feel many will enjoy this head. Comes in a beautiful matte gray plating finish.
  4. The Maggard Slant Head: Released in September 2016, our new Slant Razor Head is a great way to try out a slant head design without breaking the bank.


Most of the Maggard Razors line come equipped with solid 303 stainless steel handles. The heads of the entire Maggard line are chrome plated cast zinc alloy.

Quality Control:
We have visually inspected every single razor for manufacturing flaws. Many heads we test fit a blade to ensure blade exposure and gap consistency. You won’t find any bubbled up plating or overly rough edges on your new razor. The heads thread smoothly, and on every razor we have shave tested, each one was consistent in shaving from both sides of the blade. We stand behind these razors – so if you find a flaw that affects your shave, simply contact us and we will resolve the issue!

Handle Compatibility:
Our safety razors use standard threading that is compatible with almost all other 3 piece razors (Edwin Jagger, Merkur, Muhle, Gillette, iKon, Above the Tie, just to name a few).

Shave with it, enjoy it, and remember, this is a budget razor! It is cheap enough to buy one for all of your friends and help expand our community. This is the reason we’ve made these available and the reason for their great success!

    Awesome razor! Nice heavy handle and a very close shave!

  4. 5 out of 5


    The quality and finish of the razor is outstanding. The best head alignment for blade is the best I have ever seen. Great value as good or better than razors costing twice as much. Handle weight and balance is very good.

    Wow what a nice shave. Lets you get in tight spots under your nose! Can’t be beat for the price. Recommended!

    This handle for the price is unreal. Fantastic. Quality is the same you would find in handles on razors three times as expensive. While I hated the head (open comb and separate review) this handle is one of, if not the best in my den of 20+ safety razors. I will be buying several of these, heads included, even though the heads aren’t for me, as Christmas gifts this year. The head being super mild, would be great for a newbie and the handle will be the only one they ever need being able to use it on other, more aggressive heads as they progress. Amazing handle. Enough said.

    I bought the MR 3 on the Black Friday sale primarily for the handle since I prefer open combs. I shaved with it upon arrival with the head that came with the razor. WHAT A SHAVE!!! It is now in my rotation along with the MR 5. Unbelievable razors at unbelievable prices. They have put my EJ’s and Merkurs in the draw and out of the rotation.

    Great price, and value for the razor. It provided a clean close shave. The shave quality of the razor is just as good as many razor that are 3 times the amount. A good introduction for the beginning wet shaver.

    This is a very nice razor and great value. I got a shave with this razor comparable to my more expensive razors. I was drawn in by the good looks, but the performance is gonna keep this razor in my rotation. I love the weight and heft of the handle and the head just plain delivers a close comfortable shave. I would recommend this razor to anyone looking for a great shave at a fraction of the cost of the higher end razors. This razor is well made and I can tell it’s gonna last a loong time. This razor is not cheap by any means, it’s just inexpensive and worth every penny and more.

    So far, I have yet to use the head of this razor to shave with, I really bought it for the handle but for $4more why skip another head? I am a newbie so I am trying to stick with my DE8911 to hone my technique. I did use this handle on my DE89 head and it worked really well! It is shorter and much fatter than the EJ, but it feels great and is noticeably heavier. I love the handle! It may not be the piece of art that the EJ is, but hey, I bought it to shave with, not look at, and for that, the handle is a FABULOUS tool! Plated as well as my Craftsman socket sets – great knurling, too! Fits great in the EJ travel case (RT9 I think it is that I have – handle length and diameter of this razor both fit despite the case description).

    The head, on visual inspection, does not center the blade as well as the EJ, and yes, there is some play/wiggle room that allows you to even it up. I cannot comment on the shave yet, but I plan on using it as soon as I get my technique kinks worked out (only 4 shaves in and already buying things that aren’t needs!). As the Maggards say, this ain’t no $200 razor – be realistic and you will be thrilled. I sure am!

    I have only been wet shaving for about 6 months. So far I have tried a RazoRock Classic and a 1957 Gillette Super Speed. I was quite happy with both of them and had no intention on buying another razor. I saw this razor and the short, stout handle really appealed to me so for that price I thought what the hell. Let me tell you… this razor is AWESOME! It’s weighted perfectly, feels very high quality and offers an excellent shave. I haven’t shaved with anything else since I picked it up. Great job!

    Had I bought this first I would only have one razor now rather than four.
    Glides across my face like a skate on ice!
    2 pass BBS with a feather blade!

    Also, ordered on a Friday, got it on the following Monday! (3 days)

  13. 5 out of 5


    Simply put, this is the best razor for its price (and it out does other razors that cost a heck of a lot more). I have been shaving with DE’s and SE’s for well over a year now and this is my go to razor if I want a BBS shave without any irritation. Great weight, great balance and great price.

    Superb razor, hefty, beefy shaver that shaves beautifully! And you can add weight to the handle as well, which I did to make this little guy my heaviest razor!! Great job yet again Maggards!!!

  15. 5 out of 5


    I picked this little guy up because it’s unique. Short and squat, it’s definitely different from the average. It’s well balanced, very maneuverable, and the knurling is quite grippy. It has become my go to razor.

    This MR3 Razor has the heft and look of a lifetime razor. The reviews and videos I’ve seen online touting this razor as an excellent choice. Customer comments and reviews have sold me on this razor. I always hear great things about the Maggard Razor company and their products and can’t wait to get mine.

  17. 5 out of 5


    I continue to be impressed by Maggard razors. Considering the price is under $20 this razor could very well be the best bang for the buck for new and old wet shavers alike.

    In my opinion the handle alone is worth the price, but to top it off the head on this shaves like a dream.

  18. 5 out of 5


    I love this razor! The Maggard head is, of course, excellent. A perfect balance of aggressiveness and comfort. The new MR3 handle looks great too. It’s thick but not super heavy. I like how it is hollow so you can add more weight if you want to. I have not found the need to do so. If you like the way it looks, don’t hesitate to grab one!
