What a great razor. This little bad boy shaves like no other. I have a collection of vintage and new DE razors and by far this goldmember shaves the best!!!!! It's so good it's like "One million dollars!"
This is my first DE razor. The 34C has good reviews and is a top seller so I thought it was a safe bet. Then I spotted the gold one and just had to get it. Three shave passes with this razor works perfect for me. The short handle works well and the weight is good. Look forward to using this for some years ahead. Yes, it is worth the price I paid.
Still getting the hang of this razor. I'm still fairly new to DE shaving. My first razor was a Merkur 23C LONG, so the shortness and weight of the 34G is taking some getting used to. The finish is bar none exceptional and I'm looking forward to seeing it age as I age (no rush though).
Before I even thought of buying this razor I didnt want to jump the gun becuase I wasnt sure if I was going to enjoy DE blade shaves. But now my shaving routine is a part of me. I started with the merkur 23c and built the confidence to buy the 34g. First of all let me say this. the leagnth of the razor gives an advantage of maintaing the right angle when doing multiple passes at once. The word smooth doesnt give justice to how good of a shave I get with this razor (I use feather blades). And the gold finish just outstanding it makes the experience of shaving what it is. its your face so you want the best and this is it.
I am a long time user of Merkur razors. I bought this one to add to my collection and because I recall my grandfather using a gold plated safety razor similar to it. The gold plating adds a nice touch to an otherwise utilitarian item.
