First and only Review by TONY
This is the first DE razor I bought and from the quality of it I'd say its the only one I'll have to buy very good quality. Pair it with quality blades and good shave soap and you'll get a barber quality shave every time in the palm of your hand. Its a little bit smaller than I anticipated but don't let that fool you this is a precision shaving instrument. This is a must have for any serious middle budget wet shaver. Always remember quality products produce a quality shave.
Solid purchase Review by David
This is my first razor. It's obvious right away that it's built like a tank. I like that it's consistently rated very well and it wasn't a huge investment to get into DE shaving.
Perfect First DE Review by mockidol
After doing my research online I came to the conclusion that the Merkur 34C would be a fitting first DE razor fr myself and was not disappointed. Even the first shave felt familiar! While the price of all DE razors feels expensive at first the value is great in the long run and this particular model is very modest for a beginner. It comes highly recommended by me and many others. I'll b buying a second one soon for my father's birthday!
Graduating To A True Shave Review by Michael NYC
It takes a little getting used to, especially after years of shaving like an amateur, but once adopted, this is the best shave of my life. I combine it with the best practices of shave oil, shave cream and post shave balm. If you are serious about looking good and treating yourself in the best manner possible, adopt the habits our grandfathers practiced and switch to a saftey razor with all the right stuff. This razor will prove the best shave of your life!
Great value safety razor Review by JMartin
This is my first safety razor. I was concerned that the transition wouldn't be painless, but so far, so good. I use the Grooming Lounge oil and shaving cream - and proceed with caution, but 3 weeks in, and not a scratch. Avoiding the downside is good... but the upside: amazing. Even when I shave before bed, I wake the next morning with a baby's butt smooth face. Wonderful. All in all, this may also be my last safety razor. Long live the Merkur 34C!
Good razor, sharp looking and heavy Review by Johnnyb
Gives a good shave, the only drawback is the extremely short handle. I thought I was missing a piece, but I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually.
NoComplaints Review by JayDee
This was the first true "safety razor" I have ever purchased. I was a little intimidated at first when using it, but this is the closest shave I have ever received, especially coupled with a shaving oil/cream cocktail. Thanks GL!

Great experience Review by Convert
Decided to try old school shaving and must say that the splotchiness I had with fusion razor is gone and the shave is much better. Using Proraso products and they are the best, especially the pre and post shave cream. Although it takes me longer to shave I actually look forward to shaving and really enjoy the ritual. I recommend it for those with sensitive skin who have been searching for the right shaving tools. Also, go to YouTube and watch the wet shaving videos by the guy wearing a do rag. He lathers and rinses 2 or 3 times during the shave and it works.
Best razor ever! Review by John
This is without a doubt the best razor I have ever used. It gives such a closer shave than anything else I have tried and with it being double sided it saves a good amount of time.
