Can anyone help me contact someone that is known for performing a Progress-to-Mergress conversion?  Other than the guy in England who is a bit pricey.  Thanks.


April 23 - just a heads up that Eric Maier is still in the Progress-to-Mergress conversion business and his email is  ericmaier2112@gmail.com.

Mer used to offer custom conversions to the Mergress, but I don't think he does that anymore. 

There used to be other guys who'd make the knob and install it for you, but I think most of them have stopped doing it. You could try Elite Razors - they may be willing to tackle it for you, but it may still be expensive.

I wouldn't sweat it if you have difficulty in finding someone to do the conversion for you. I haven't seen Lee offering them for quite sometime now. Even when he did, they're availability was very sporadic.

The shave quality of the Mergress and Progress is the same. I know its an aesthetic issue but there is beauty in what some call the 'ugly plastic knob'.

Either version, they're a great shaver!!
