Description

This was the very first razor we carried at West Coast Shaving and it remains one of our most popular of all time. The Merkur Heavy Duty Safety Razor is a chrome finished 2-piece DE razor. The comfortable handle is approximately 3" long and is designed with a thicker grip with non-slip knurling. It's shorter than something like a Fusion, but the shorter length actually makes it more maneuverable and is typical of the old Gillettes. One of the most well known wet shaving products on the market.

Due to the popularity, this item has taken on a number of names over the years such as Merkur HD, Merkur Heavy Duty, or 34C and combinations of all of those names as well. It's all the same product and it's remained unchanged since we've carried it.

It is average on the aggressiveness scale and, therefore, a continual first choice for new wet shavers. At the same time, it's not too mild so experienced classic shaving fans love it as well. You could buy this and be set for life...and even pass it along to your grandson. Just make sure to clean it per manufacturer recommendations and it will last for decades.

This razor uses all standard double edge blades for a close and comfortable shave and features a 2-piece design. Replacement blades are available.

Handle length: 3 inches

The Merkur Razors do not come with a pack of blades. They do come with 1 Merkur Blade, so I would recommend getting more blades.

<p>Does anybody have any experience shaving heads with this, or any closed combed razor? Sick of disposing, but nervous to switch.</p>

I have Merkur 34C and Edwin Jagger DE89. From my (I emphasize MY) experience, Merkur is a little more aggressive and gives a little closer shave. But both are great and it is a really hard to say which is better. After going back and forth several times, I settled on Merkur and my son on EJ (yup, 19 yo boy is using safety razor). It is well accepted in DE community that different blades behave differently on different skin. So, if you are new to safety razors (or coming back from long period of using disposables), pay a little more and buy a sample pack of blades. "Per blade" price is higher in a sample pack, but you'll try different brands and will know what is best for you.

For shaving heads, I recommend using the Merkur 23C long handle, so you can reach the back of your head easier without having to reach, causing you to put more pressure on the razor which will cause you to cut yourself. The long handle is comfortable to reach and you do not have to add extra pressure, just let the blade do the work.

I bought this razor this past spring to replace my multiple-bladed razor of many years and I LOVE it! It took a while for me to get used to the short length but I love the weight and the level of aggressiveness it has. My question: Is there a long-handled version of it? I'd love to try it also.
