Safety Razor Recommendations Reviews
Best shave in years. No
Best shave in years. No razor burn or nicks, even with short stubble.
Merkur Safety Razor
I have been using this razor for several weeks and it shaves well. I would just buy the sampler pack of blades and you will be set for a year of shaving. I strop my razor blades and they last 3 times as long. This razor will make you look forward to shaving.
Feather AS-D2
This razor has now replaced my Edwin Jagger as my all time favorite safety razor. It is definitely worth the $180 I paid for it. I love it that the blade doesn't extend beyond the ends of the razor. My only minor complaint is that the blade easily comes off the small ridges that keep it aligned when I open it slightly to rinse it after a shave. Other than that it is a perfect work of art that just happens to give the best shave possible. I also own the $18 Feather and it is my second favorite razor. By the way, on the $18 Feather, don't tighten it all the way unless you are using it to shave. When you are done shaving, clean it and then loosen the "butterfly" slightly or you will permanently bend the plastic "bar". My two Feathers are the only safety razors I use any more.
My first Safety Razor
Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Safety Razor "I did a lot a research before settling for the Merkur 34C.I also purchased the 38 While the finish may not be as good as Edwin Jagger razors, I find the two-piece design of the Merkur to be easier to replace blades and to clean also. I like the industrial look, feel and build, it's typical German quality. The length is just right, but those with fat fingers may want a longer grip. With proper technique, and depending on which blade you choose, this razor gives an excellent shave. If you are not careful, or are in a hurry, you will get cut or nicked, regardless of what type razor you use.
Great choice
West Coast Shaving Classic Collection Razor 78S, Stainless Steel "Enjoyed my first shave with a DE razor. Used cartridges most of my life. Used it with derby blade and my first attempt was almost flawless. Razor looks and feels great in my hand. At this price it's a no brainer. Great product and superb in store shopping experience.
Edwin Jagger Double Edge Safety Razor, Barley Gold "I own two Muhle's and two Edwin Jagger's. For my face the Edwin Jagger's shave smoother and more nick free. This particular model has a knurled handle for better grip, plus it enhances the beauty of this razor.
WCS 78s
West Coast Shaving Classic Collection Razor 78S, Stainless Steel "This razor is really nice. However, if you are a potential buyer make sure you are aware that the handle and head are different metals. The handle is stainless steel and the head is chrome plated. I'm not entirely positive of why the entire razor wasn't one or the other. Personally I'm not a fan of the mismatch once now that I have seen it, thus the reason for a 4 star instead of 5. The shave is really good, similar to a Merkur 34C. I'm sure you will enjoy your shave with this and the value for the money is really good.
Merkur 34C
Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Safety Razor "V. Satisfied. Even though the handle is short , the knob on the end prevents the razor slipping out of the hand.

Q:<p>I am 58 and I have been shaving against the grain since I was 17 (disposable blades). I recently purchased and returned the Feather AS-D2 (amazon). It was my first safety razor. I found I could get a close shave and I did try shaving first with the grain and last against the grain. Which of your razors would you recommend ?? the Merkur 34C or the Merkur Futur. Thank you.</p>

A:The Merkur 34C is a great razor and one we highly recommend. This is you standard safety razor and a lot of people love the 34C. The Merkur Futur is also a great razor because it is adjustable. You can change the exposure oft he blade to make it more or less aggressive.
