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.
Awesome razor! Review by Adam
I have played around with several razors, and determined I am not a straight-edge guy. The razor has great weight, which helps produce a smooth shave. The blades are real easy to replace.
Great razor Review by Frank
This razor is a winner. Keep in mind that it's on the shorter side, so it may take some getting used to. Still, it's heavy and doesn't require a lot of pressure to get a great shave.
Back to basics Review by Girolamo
The first time I used a double-edged razor was my fathers as a teenager , but as a kid I wanted to be diffident so I went with what ever was new and in.
A few weeks ago I found my dads old double-Edged Safety razor which I had keept after he passed away to remember him by and I tried it to see why he loved it so much and it sold me. Now I can say that I have become my dad a mam who knows the best things in life are not always the newest and latest.
Never going back to multi blades! EVER! Review by Steve
This little tool is awesome!!! This razor seemed tiny at first, but when I started shaving I realized I had unbelievable control over the razor. I always had trouble around the jaw line with multi blades and kept missing spots, but with this razor I can get every hair and feel smooth without the frustation of repeatedly going back to tough to reach areas. The razor is perfectly balanced in my opinion and if you take care of this razor it seems like it can last a lifetime!!! I use this with all of the GL greatest shave ever kit products for astonishing performance and comfort!!!
Merkur "Heavy Classic" Review by FreshGent
Just got this about a week ago, and have loved shaving since. Since starting to shave in high school (now 27) I always used the 3-4-5 blade razors...while my father and grandfather always swore by the safety razor or straight razors. I feel stupid for not listening, and converting sooner! Indeed the best shave I have had. The weight is perfect and does allow you to shave with less pressure. This razor does have a shorter handle if you can not tell by the picture, but none the less a perfect razor. I will use this one to travel, as the smaller handle makes it easier to pack and save room, and I am going to buy the Merkur Long Handled 38C for my home use. You will not be disappointed!
beautiful!!! Review by jgonc
The greatest razor I've ever used. I've been using Gillette razors forever and no matter how many razors they can combine, it does not match the closeness of a single safety blade. It is completely obvious how close the shave is after one day. Your 5-o-clock shadow shows up a day late. i highly recommend this blade. Definitely worth the price if you hate shaving.
Solid Review by Bryan
This is my first DE razor, and so far I'm pretty happy with it. It takes some adjusting and practice to get a good shave, but it's worth the patience. The hardest thing for me to adjust to was the lack of a pivoting blade, but that lasted maybe 4 shaves. It cleans really easily as well. I won't go back to a multi blade razor again. Well made, but stubbier than I thought it would be. It's not a problem if you have thin, spiderly fingers like me, but guys with banana hands might get frustrated. Overall: recommend this to everyone, especially if you want your lady (or friends) to think you're a badass.
Merkur asdas Review by sultan al-orini
What a lovely shaving tool purchase this items with Merkur Super Platinum Stainless Double-Edged Blades. Watch out around the throat and don't wipe the blade rise with water shake it to dry.
