  • Industrial design with chrome finish

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.

Great Safety Razor

This was a great precision safety razor that left no razor burn after the shave.

Ditch the Plastic and Go Back to Basics!

I was looking into a more sustainable way to shave. I found this razor based on reviews from the internet, and I’m glad I did! This is my first and (most likely) last safety razor. I use this to shave my legs. I have small hands, so this was the perfect length for me. I like the weight as well. I don’t have to apply any pressure when shaving. It’s also easy to clean and keep. I was kind of hesitant because of the price, but this was worth it. I’m honestly surprised most people aren’t investing in this piece. I had a great experience. I will never go back to disposable razors!

A great razor for a neophyte

I love this razor. For decades I used cartridge razors but became disenchanted by them: they're too expensive and really irritate my face. After being plagued by shaving bumps and razor burn, I began to watch some videos about safety razors. I wanted to take the plunge, but was scared by commenters who suggested that people new to safety razors cut themselves a lot. On the fence about a safety razor, I finally decided to get a Merkur 34C. And...I love it. It has made shaving so much more comfortable. The razor is also really, really easy to use, which I appreciate. So far, I haven't even nicked myself once. For first-time users of safety razors, I heartily recommend the Merkur 34C. Solid, dependable, heavy-duty, and easy to use, it's a fantastic razor for a beginner such as myself.
