  • 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.

Weight : 78 grams

One for home and one for travel! Love this razor. Very easy to handle and control. Nice close shaves! West Coast Shaving is the best!

Best

This is the best of the safety razors that I have tried. It doesn't come loose the way other safety razors do because of the design of the head. Also the shorter handle is more manuverable. I recommend this razor for anyone- experienced or beginner-

Best shave I’ve ever gotten

This razor shaves so smooth I had to check if I loaded a blade, best for the price point and not as much hassle for alignment as a 3 piece and a mite better built than a butterfly razor, will recommend.

34 C....”Old Reliable”

I have been shaving for more than sixty years. There are currently two razors, both held by bullet stands, on my bathroom sink countertop, a Feather AS-D2 and a 34D. The 34C, combined with a Personna Med Prep blade, among other quality blades, a Feather or a Kai, in my experience, produce a smooth and comfortable, always safe, experience. I estimate using the Feather, incomparable in my experience, on a ratio of about four or five to one to the 34C. I rinse the 34C thoroughly when in use. I clean the instrument with Barbicide about monthly. I compare the 34C favorably to such razors as the Aristocrat, the Supply, and the Envoy, each being of high quality. The deciding factor, for me, in the priority of the Feather and the 34C is the complete absence of fear of cutting from either. Enjoy shaving fellow travelers.

Quality Razer

I had been looking for a shorter razed with a textured grip near the blade, I realized I don’t hold my razed at the butt of the grip and the one I was using had no texture grip at the neck. So the folks at the shop recommended this razor. Excellent weight and balance. I have had this razor now for a little under a month and I have been very happy with it. Use with a Feather blade for best results!
