Great Throwback Razor

Maybe being an oldie at almost 75 makes me qualified to relate to a timeless design like this 1904/1905 relic but I loved shaving with this gorgeous thing. Guess what, even you young guys need to get yourself to this razor. You’ll thank me, honest.

1904 forevermore

Efficient, lightweight and clean. Simpler times. It takes a lace on my counter next to my Muhle R41 and Timeless. This is the original standard that has lasted the test of time. Love it.

Elevated my shaving game

This is going to sound negative but this razor made me love my 34c so much more. That said, this is my 2nd razor and it really upped my game and is an important part of my arsenal. Right away I noticed this was less top-heavy than the 34c, though it FELT heavier overall. It's not as forgiving, or as comfortable, but it feels great in the hand and gets WAY more done on the 1st and 2nd passes. I've got a coarse beard and fairly sensitive skin, so that was what I was looking for. As a bonus, though I was pretty confident in my technique when I got it, this razor has really helped me see several things I could do better. With practice, I now get BBS shaves with my 1904 alone, and it reinforces how much my technique has improved. I am finding far more success with Astra blades (my favorite for 34c is Feather). Bottom line: this razor made me a better shaver, made me appreciate my other Merkur more, and provides regular, close shaves. I got it on sale and am thrilled with the value!
