just switched shaving habits forever Review by first time user
i have used 5 blade systems as long as I can remember (i'm 41 now). so glad i discovered this site and this particular razor. Didn't break the bank an was a safe introduction to shaving properly...
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.
Dependable Review by Vincent
Excellent entry level safety razor. Durable and reliable.
Greatest razor ever Review by Michael
I shaved with plastic before. Got sick of it. Tried this razor. Will never shave with anything else. Just shaved a weeks worth of growth off in one pass with minimal stubble. Razor is high quality material. Weight is awesomely perfect. It's not surprising it's currently out of stock at the time of this writing. Weather you use a safety razor and looking to buy another or replacement. Or, tried of shaving with so many blades it can't fit under your nose. This is the razor to get. Yes, it is SHARP. It will cut you if your not careful your first time around. This was my first time using a safety razor. And, it was the best shave ever. I look forward to getting better at it.
Best Safety Razor Hands Down! Review by Mikhail
I'd used the long handled Merkur for about a year when i started doing a wet shave. After some time i noticed my hand creeping further up the handle to get better control over the razor and weigh distribution. It was then that I realized that maybe it was time to try the classic one with the short handle. I did and i'm never going back. Once you get the hang of using a safety razor, this is the one you'll want for everyday use.
Outstanding Review by James
Been shaving for over 30 years. Switched to D/E razor for first time just two months ago and this is the one I chose. Great choice! Heavy and well-balanced. The weight does most of the work. Very effective with short learning curve. Super easy to clean.
I love this razor, closest shave I've ever had. Review by Big Dawg
I am glad I return to using a double edge razor. This razor has given me the closest shave I've had in years. I would recommend this razor for everyone. The weight and feel of the razor is very good, it is easy to hold and using a good razor blade like a personna makes my shaving experience very enjoyable. I am old school, 64 years old and using this razor has taken me back to days of old. Some things when they are build right need no improvement, this is one of them.
Great instrument Review by Brodi
Being in the military, I have to shave every day. I would let my facial hair grow on the weekends to help cut down on razor burn. However, our regulation has changed and now I have to shave everyday including weekends. On duty or off duty. With this new change, my neck was getting eaten up. So, I searched for an alternative and read about using a DE. I decided to purchase this off of all the reviews and all I can say is that this instrument has saved my neck. I am very pleased with this razor and will continue to improve my skill using it. From here on out in my life, I will only wet shave!!
All around awesome Review by Jordon
Highest possible quality shaving instrument. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be getting the best shaves of your life for a fraction of the cost of multi-blade razors.
BEST SHAVE EVER! Review by Gary
This is my first DE safety razor and I'll never go back to the drug store kind. Closest shave I've ever had. MERKUR 34C is just the right size for my hand. Only one nick with the first shave but that was operator error.. Grooming Lounge is great to deal with!
