One of our most popular items, the Merkur 34 C 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.

Feels Just Right

Admittedly, I'm a novice at this game. But the Merkur 34C feels just right when I hold it in my hand. When I was considering purchasing it, I thought the length seemed a little short - as it is compared to disposable blades. But I trusted the positive reviews. And the combination of weight and length seems just right to me.

Great First Razor

This is an amazing razor of amazing build quality that delivers a nice smooth shave. It is admittedly rather mild with the shave it delivers, but I do not mean that in a bad way. Every blade I have used in this razor while doing two to three passes delivers a smooth shave, especially if you go against the grain. Also, one of the questions asked if a blade was included and WCS said there wasn't; there is. Blade itself I was not crazy about but YMMV. If you're new to wet shaving or simply want a dependable razor, this is for you.

GREAT razor

We bought 2 of the Murker 34C razors (one for my husband and one for myself) because we got tired of spending the money on disposable razors and wanted to try something longer lasting. These are great! They feel well made and they are easy to hold when in the shower. Due to the textured handle the grip is firm and doesn't feel like it would slip either. This is a great deal for the amount of time they last. I highly recommend.
