- safety razor
Excellent razor for face and neck
I was having problems getting the right blade angle on my neck because the razor I was using had a long handle and the result was lots of irritation. I contacted WCS customer service to ask for advice on using a shorter handle model and Evelyn suggested the Merkur 34C as one option. That was good advice and I'm finally getting a clean neck shave without irritation because it's much easier to maneuver and control the 34c on my neck's contours. The handle is only 3" long so it almost feels like you're guiding it with your fingertips but that works for me because my neck has indentations and tendons showing.. The build quality is solid and it's a snap to clean. Good razor and I highly recommend it if you're OK with a very short handle.
Small but mighty
Bought it for a travel razor High quality metals and robust weight It’s cute...about as big as my ring finger Fits nicely in the WCS Leather Safety Razor Case, Brown
I have three, a 23C 34C and 38C. My 23 is for head shaving, it does a great job. I use the 34 when traveling, and the 38 is my at home shaver. Now I don't recommend you try this but I find it almost impossible to cut myself with these razors, even with a Feather blade. After 3 passes quite a close shave all around. Buy this razor, you won't regret it.
Merkur makes great razors, no nicks, ingrown hairs or irritation, nothing but a surgically smooth shave
Why did I wait so long?
I cringe every time I forget my safety razor and am forced to use a bic or 15 bladed gilette razor. This Merkur safety razor is what you need. Try it once and you'll never go back; a closer shave than the disposable blades, a cheaper shave, a more therapeutic experience and the ability to regain some of your manliness back. If you're thinking about dipping your toe back into the pool of manliness, start with this baby. She'll never let you down and all ways leave you silky smooth. I've had this razor for several years now and recommend it to everyone still foolish enough think shaving shouldn't deserve time. It's well balanced, weighty but not heavy, durable and compact. Take the plunge, its worth it!
