How to disassemble and assemble a Merkur Vision:

Here you can see how to disassemble and assemble a Merkur Vision.
Merkur recommends that you regularly clean and scrape with a soft brush to remove dirt and soap residue.
In addition, it is a good idea to put the scraper in vinegar for a few minutes from time to time. The vinegar dissolves limescale deposits.
If you keep your Vision clean, you are sure that the moving parts will continue to function as they should.
