  • 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.

Merkur 34C HD

I have a number of DE razors and the 34C gives me the smoothest, most comfortable and closest shave yet with an ASTRA Platinum blade. Not a too aggressive razor but ,being retired, I only shave every other or every 2 days and it still really does the job one 1 pass each direction. Love it! Douglas

Just Buy It!!!

I've been wet shaving for over 20 years. Used various safety razors but I have been using the Edwin Jagger DE89 and the Parker Variant Adjustable a lot off late. Both are very very good razors. I've been wanting to try out the Merkur 34C out of curiosity for a while now. And I'm glad I purchased it. It's an excellent razor. Very slightly more aggressive than the DE89. Very efficient. Very well built. Perfect shave. Definitely the best safety razor I've ever used. Don't think about getting a 34C. Just buy it. It's the best and only razor you'll ever need. Thank you West Coast Shaving for the excellent service. Best wishes from Malaysia.

You get what you pay for

I was satisfied with this razor, but I only got 18 months of use out of it, and was expecting a lot longer. That's what you get with a chrome plated razor. I was mid shave, and opened the mechanism to rinse off the blade, and wasn't able to tighten it down again, the knob just spins and spins. I checked and the chrome plating had worn away at the screw threads, and the threads were worn down to nothing, beyond repair. Now I have a half shaven face, and am looking for a new one in a rush. Disappointing. Will buy a stainless steel safety razor next time.
