  1. Worth Getting Review by Ed

    This my first time using this product, I'm 55 years old and used a lot of different razors to shave with. I've been using this razor for 2 weeks now and it is great. My face has sensitive skin and breaks out when I shave with any razor. I have used electric razors and the expensive razors with all the fancy strips on them to no avail I still get razor burn. My shave is just as close with the Merkur 34C as to the 4 & 5 blade razors. But this razor is different, my face doesn't break out or get any razor burn.I would recommend this product to try.

  2. A return to craftsmanship Review by Gary F.

    Well made impressive razor. The razor is a return solid craftsmanship. The trick is learning to shave with this razor. Other reviews on this site have been great in learning how to use a double edge razor. I grew up using cheap disposals. I have learned that shave oil and good lather helps avoid cuts. This first week I have cut my self 4 out 5 times but the shave is so close it is worth the pain of the learning curve. You may not be able to get a Porsche but the Merkur gives you affordable German craftsmanship.

    I previously alternated between junk razors and electric razors, but I have been consistently shaving with this razor now and enjoy it more each time. There is a bit of a learning curve (not for shaving safely, but for getting a close shave, due to the angle you need to hold the razor), but once that is learned a close shave can be achieved with no irritation.

    This is a great razor, well balanced with good weight. The weight of the razor just lets the blade glide right through. I'm never shaving with a cartridge again.

  5. upset my hair doesnt grow faster Review by jordan

    Well.....I feel like an old school 50's guy now. I have gone out and bought all the necessary products to start doing the wet shave thing (razor, brush, cream, oil). I used to think of shaving as a inevitable chore that came around twice a week if I could push it. I used to put it off as long as I could, now I can't get my hair to grow fast enough. I love this new appreciation for shaving that you cannot get from an old Gillette gel and disposable razor. this razor is a perfect size and weight, I was told you may cut yourself the first few times, but this one has very good construction and allows a smooth shave without nicking yourself. love how close of a shave you get from this razor, I will not be going back to the old Gillette.

  6. Don't know why my fathers generation ever stopped shaving this way. Review by Jay-C

    Using this razor has been a very enlightening experience. Like so many young men I was taught to shave with the standard Mach 3 and Gillette spray can foam. I have always dreaded shaving to often as it would cause me to break into rashes. I always thought I had sensitive skin until I changed the way I shaved.
    Now not only will I not go back I have now introduced my father to this and I would recommend it to anyone else I know.

    So...I have been buying the expensive gillette and schick razors since a kid...read long long time! I came across the Groominglounge site while looking for a beard trimmer and saw this DE shaver. I've been watching it for a long time and took at look at how to use it. Ordered it up and I am loving it...not only does it look vintage...I am getting a better and more cost effective shave! LOVE IT!

  9. A little disappinted in the shave... Review by Glenn

    While this is a rugged feeling, nice heavy razor, I'm not getting a particularly close shave with it. I guess that's more of a reflection on the razor blade, which is the Merkur stainless steel blade that came with the razor. To tell the truth, the shaves I'm getting are no closer than with my old Norelco electric shaver.
