  • Best selling safety razor

  • 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

Great Razor

This is a really great razor, and a very happy switch from the one I had been using. Before I found this one, I almost switched back to cartridge shaving. I'm glad I found this razor, and have stuck with it.

Great Razor

I have a Merkur 23c and like it, I wanted to try the shorter handle, and the fabled 34c. I also have a EJ D89L both good razors. In my experience the Merkur razors are more consistent after blade changes than my copy of the D89. The agesivenes is very slightly more than the 23c and very similar to the D89. The shorter handle does make manovering a bit easier. Just like blades and brushes razors are a personal choice, I believe the consistency in manufacturing make them a winner.

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-
