About this deal

Everything about the 34C safety razor except the Merkur 34G comes plated in gold instead of chrome, making it also a pretty women's safety razor.

The chrome plating is beautifully crafted and stands up to regular wear and tear, although we have heard of it chipping after years of use.When I set out to try a safety razor, the top two most popular picks for someone starting off were the Merkur 34C or the Edwin Jagger DE8x line. Ich ziehe lang und im ersten Gang "mit dem Strich", also in Wuchsrichtugn der Barthaare und straffe mit der freien Hand die Hautpartie oder mache ein paar Grimassen. Wer mit der echten Nassrasur beginnen will, findet hier einen sehr präzise verarbeiteten Hobel, der was die "Klingenführung" angeht, super tolerant ist.

It glides almost on its own and with the high dead weight a razor needs less force when cutting the hair than a plastic razor. I like that you do not feel the need to apply any pressure because of this, and the short length gives a lot of control. Not only is the design beautiful, it's also practical as the knurled finish ensures a firm grip, which is especially important when shaving with damp or soapy hands. Wrapped in paper and once broken through, the blade should be disposed of in household waste to protect against accidental contact and to be kept out of reach of children. The Merkur 34c heavy duty safety razors hits the sweet spot and a great shave for most wet-shavers and one of the most safest safety razor available.I would have said it is mild/medium in terms of aggressiveness - good if you are a beginner - but can be pepped up with a Feather blade if you like.

Founded in 1906, Merkur is a German-based company producing some of the most renowned shaving implements in the industry. With the classic blade containing of two cutting edges, it becomes a ‘double edge’ DE razor, one on each side. The machined handle provides excellent grip whether you’re shaving in front of the mirror or in the shower and its shortness is ideal for tricky areas like the underside of a beard or delicate areas.

I've mastered the 34c angles for my face (knowing at times it's not the most efficient razor out there), but have struggled with efficiency blindly doing the back of my head and across the non-handed side. The Merkur 34C is on the milder end of the aggression spectrum, although I find it slightly more aggressive than the Edwin Jagger.
