Wet Shaving, Luxury Grooming and Smiles

Merkur double edge safety razors are a household term among wet-shavers! These German-crafted shaving tools have become a standard in the industry. They are part of Dovo, who was founded in 1906. Merkur offers very interesting options and are far more expansive than many other safely razor companies. You can get a variety of head styles ranging from a straight safety bar, open comb, or slant bar. In addition to the heads, there are a variety of handles from 2 piece, 3 piece, and adjustable razors. They tend to have very good knurling on the handles, which is helpful when your hands are slippery. It is a great brand to explore if you have not found exactly the perfect tool for cutting those whisker and need to try another razor style, or if you are the kind of guy who just likes to change it up a bit sometimes.

Merkur Reviews
Bought this safety razor in 2014 and haven't been back to this page ever since .. (because i didn't need another one)... now i have decided to buy this for my dad ..

My experience so far .. superb .. this is my first branded safety razor (Only those that is made in China is available in Malaysia) after few of them got rusty and low quality .. i bought Merkur 43C .. i loved it ..

Built quality is awesome .. despite the fact i felt it is heavy initially but got used to the weight. The weight helps shaving effortlessly.. i am glad i got this razor and thanks to West Coast Shaving.
The Best
This is by far the best safety razor I have ever used. Never leaves a cut or any razor burn on my face. The only downside, which is not bad, is that the handle is a bit wider than most, so it does not fit into my normal brush and razor stand. I had to file the prongs a bit to make it fit.
Clearly a Remarkable Razor
The Merkur 34C (or, HD etc.) is rightly regarded as something of a standard among the razors that are available today. I like my silver model so much that I bought a gold one too--really just because I like the 34C/HD. This razor obviously (read the reviews) pleases a lot of people; nevertheless, not every one. I personally like the thicker, shorter handle. It makes finding a balance point on up the handle toward the head of the razor easier for me, given the way I like to hold any razor. I also find the texturing of the handle assuring. Some razors worry me the whole time I am shaving, because they feel as if they are about to twist some way that will end up with me getting cut. That's not the case with the 34C's handle. And, I like the weight of the razor. It's not called "Heavy Duty" for nothing. It is heavy by comparison to most DE razors. I find that used the right way, the weight allows me to shave with less manually applied pressure. I like that feeling--but everyone may not. Someone coming over to the HD from using a multi-blade completely disposable or throwaway head razor might find the light touch peculiar. At first it certainly is easy to apply too much pressure, which can produce all kinds of odd effects, many unpleasant. he razor is obviously a Merkur, and I find that it requires holding at an angle similar to other Merkur two-piece razors, say, like the 1904. I had to get used to this kind of razor at first, because I had been using other brands, such as Feather, Gillette (Fat Boy and Thin), PILS, and even the Merkur Futur and Vision. I may be strange, but I like to shave in rotations--brushes, soaps and creams, and razors. The rotations are each systematic but separate (razor, brush, cream or soap), and this produces lots of different combinations in the mornings. Maybe it's silly, but I find it to be interesting and fun first thing in the morning. When I see one of my two 34Cs coming up in the razor rotation, I find that I look forward to using them. I wouldn't say that the HDs are my very favorite razors. That accolade goes to a Gillette Fat Boy that belonged to my father and that I watched him used during my whole childhood and youth. It is probably purely sentiment that makes this one my favorite razor. After this particular Fat Boy, another Fat Boy and my two HDs come in a close second. Finally, all of that ramble is to say this: I like the Merkur 34C a lot. It's shape and weight are probably not for everyone, but if someone will give it a little time, in order to get the hang of holding it, applying pressure, and finding the right angle, it could be a razor for just about anyone. The scores that are recorded by reviewers tell the story of the HD's popularity, but even so, no razor is for everyone. But, I belong to the crowd of fellows who really like this one.
Quality blade ,probably use them
Quality blade ,probably use them longer than I should before changing blades,
I have had a Futur razor for 5-6 years and find it an excellent functional product. The blade change is quick and I'm always in a hurry. The razor stays on my preferred setting. It has a nice weight and feel in the hand. it has an initially higher price tag, but buying replacement blades and switching every 2-3 shaves is a heck of a lot cheaper than the products offered at the supermarket. A great overall product.
Very nice blade....
Works on my face. And I was a little sceptical using this blade since it came with my Merkur Progress razor. A lot of the reviews are 50/50. But, I decided to give it a shot. Man, what a shave! I was really surprised on how well it cut through my whiskers (3 day growth) and gave me one of the closest shaves ever with just 2 passes and a quick touch up. Now 3 shaves in and still as good as a result as the first shave. Goes to show every face is different and hair types as well. My go to blades are Personna Reds, Polsilver Super iridiums and Astra Platinums. All 3 have one thing in common, they are sharp, smooth, and have great durability. So far this Merkur Super might find its way into my rotation. And it works just as well, if not better on my Merkur Futur as well. Split one in half and tried it on my Dovo Shavette and worked like a charm. Very nice blade. I'm impressed.
