Safety Razor Recommendations Reviews
Great razor, great price
I love this razor. The weird thing is that the one thing I don't like are Merkur blades. They give me nicks and razor bumps. Derby and Feather seem to work best for me. It also pays to make sure your blade is carefully aligned because it can wind up slightly crooked if you're not careful.
Merkur 34C
Amazing razor matched with astra blades smothest shave iv ever had
Some of my best memories are the mornings watching my Grandfather lather up and shave. Although it was fifty years ago, it brings back a special gentler time. I have a place in the Adirondack State Park and have been collecting vintage razors for many years to rekindle those memories. A few weeks ago I decided to research and find the best razor company and Merkur was top of the list. I decided on the 34C. Did all the pleasant rituals of warm towel and preshave. This razor is absolutely the finest in craftsmanship and performance. The handle is traditional in length - worked well, but I may buy the 38C with a longer handle. As for creme, the `Cremo lathered up perfect in my vintage cup, and left my skin soft and smooth. Lucky Tiger has no alcohol and a refreshing after after shave with all natural ingredients. Found that warming the brush in water makes a great lather. My vintage silver tip added to the overall experience.
Gold Standard
I have been using a Merker 34c-HD for awhile and thought it was a really fine razor, still do. However the AS-D2 is truly a step up. I was reluctant to spend $180 on a razor where I could not imagine a razor that that was that much better than the Merker. However the reviews had me wondering. All the reviews were correct. This thing is the gold standard for razors. When paired with a Feather blade it delivers a shave that is perfect. I do not feel the blade, only hear it cutting. It is remarkably SMOOTH. It cuts all of my growth on one pass and leaves my face soft and smooth. I have never had to do a second pass. I have managed to cut myself about once a week, but always from something stupid, not the razor, but my error. For me , this is as good as it gets. Would I do this again? Absolutely!!
Great starter safety razor
I've been using this razor for three weeks. I just can't believe it took me until my 40's to even try a safety razor. This razor is very forgiving as I did not experience any nicking or bleeding until I used a Feather blade. I didn't even really put any effort into trying to learn about the angle to use or any special technique. I just went for it straight out of the gate. This razor is typically German in the way in that it really feels like a quality piece. I'm frankly wondering what else you'd really need in a razor.
Great razor for head shaving
I use this razor to shave my head and the shorter handle actually makes it very easy to get the tricky places like behind the ears. The shave is very smooth, especially against the grain.

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.
