  • Best selling safety razor
  • German made 
  • 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.

No nonsense good razor

This a good looking and great shaving razor. There is only a little blade feel so it feels smooth while shaving. I use this razor for daily shaving. This morning I used a Feather blade in it and got a close shave with no nicks or irritation. New or experienced shavers should be able to appreciate this razor. Get one!

Great Razor

This is a very good razor for beginner and experienced shavers alike. It feels good in the hand, balances nicely and the heavy weight helps in controlling the blade. It isn't as aggressive as an open comb, but that's not a bad thing. It shaves closely enough for just about everyone short of someone with a very thick beard or someone who doesn't shave often. I highly recommend this razor.

Best Razor

There are more expensive safety razors but the Merkur heavy razor is the best. There are no fancy frills and it's heavy weight bears down well on the beard. I also prefer it's shorter handle as it seems to make it more manuverable.

Nicely made and balanced

Haven’t used a double edge in years. But was at first confused on long or short handle, but found short balances/ fits well in hand. I think a long handle would have been harder to control angle of shave. Have not cut myself, but at 72 I hope that have learned/remember how to shave. Only down side is that to clean well you have to unscrew and remove center assembly. The type that butterflies open and stays together would have been more convenient, but not a deal breaker. Well made and recommend.

Old Faithful

I have thoroughly enjoyed this razor, even though it is a pretty moderate shave. Other razors will definitely be more aggressive, but you can't go wrong with this brand or this razor, specifically.
