Merkur. You've probably seen it at the top of best seller lists in blogs, forums, and vendors all over the interweb. Well, yep! They are some of our top selling razors, too. They've been doing it longer and better than most. So with a history like that, why wouldn't you check out the Merkur Heavy Duty Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor.

Over 100 years of blade manufacturing and expertise go into production of these grooming essentials. The Merkur Heavy Duty Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor is chrome-finished for corrosion resistance and the requisite gleam. It is a 2-piece double edge razor. This means that the top plate of the head unscrews from the handle and base plate, the blade can be changed out, and the long screw is re-inserted into the handle. It also is closed comb/straight bar so your skin feels less of the blade exposure. And it takes any standard DE blade.

The comfortable handle is designed with a non-slip grip so you can use it in wet environments (Good thing, eh?). Longer and heavier than the 34C, it weighs over 4 oz. The striped texture also evokes images of the iconic striped barber pole that would have hearlded a generation of gentleman to enjoy the very ritual that you do.

Length: 4 inches

Weight : 113 grams

Made in Germany

A Better Choice than What Some Want you to Believe

I purchased this razor based on a recommendation. For years, I have been the Futur for years and it physically cant fit under my nose. The 38C HD with an Astra blade is giving me a great shave. No irritation. Admittedly the 38C HD is not the most aggressive razor, but the one thing I noticed watching the pro reviews, is that it never gives a pro shave. I wanted and like the longer heavy handle because I was used to the the Futur. The pattern on the barrel is comfortable and adds a non-slip quality. If you are an experienced shaver with some difficult places you haven't figured how to shave, or if you are buying your 1st safety razor, and you want to shave every day, this is definately a good choice.

Totally happy.

Very happy. I have nothing bad to report on. I used this razor on most of the blades available from the lowest to the highest.

An Excellent Shave

I have been looking into switching from a disposable razor to a safety razor for some time. I hate the unnecessary plastic waste and associated with disposable razors. I finally made the switch and couldn't be happier. The "long" handle of the 38C HD doesn't strike me as being long at all. I can't imagine a shorter handle working better for me. I'm not a large person with big hands. I have a fairly heavy beard and am amazed at how efficient a shave I got right from the start. No cuts or nicks. Just a fantastic, close shave. I'm never going back to disposables again.

Exceptional razor. Nice heft and good balance. The longer handle is a real plus and it does not slip. Overall an excellent safety razor

Nice shave with the 38C

I started wet shaving last November with a cheap TTO razor. I decided to upgrade and purchased the Merkur 38C. What a difference, I usually shave every three or four days. The 38C gives me a great shave in two passes. Very happy with purchase.
