Merkur was founded in 1896 by Emil Hermes in Solingen, Germany, but because there were already other cutlery companies in Solingen with the name of Hermes, Emil registered the brand name as MERKUR. Over the years, MERKUR has patented several of its models. Following the early death of his father, Hans Hermes, Dietrich Hermes ran the business during the years of the “economic miracle” together with his uncle Erich Hermes. After Erich's death in the 1970s, Dietrich sold the company MERKUR Stahlwaren to its biggest client, DOVO. Since then, the traditional production of double edge blade razors carrying the brand name MERKUR has continued under the same roof as the equally traditional production of straight razor from DOVO.
