Founded in 1906, Merkur is a German-based company producing some of the most renowned shaving implements in the industry. The Merkur 34C DE Safety Razor (Closed Comb) is a double edge closed comb safety razor.
With an overall length of 85mm (3.3”), this razor is on the slightly shorter side. While the 75mm (3”) handle may not feel perfect for those with larger hands, most shavers will find that this razor is very ease to use and offers a lot of control, making it particularly well-suited for those new to wet shaving. At 76g (2.7oz), this is a relatively heavyweight razor that is nicely balanced and a pleasure to use. Often referred to as the Merkur HD (heavy duty), it is renowned for its top-quality performance and reliably smooth shave. The extra weight allows the strong razor to simply glide across your face without having to apply any pressure.
The handle features an attractive cross hatch knurl pattern, giving the razor a particularly pleasant aesthetic. Not only is the design beautiful, it's also practical as the knurled finish ensures a firm grip, which is especially important when shaving with damp or soapy hands.
This razor includes one Merkur Super Platinum DE Razor Blade to get you started. These blades are known for their unparalleled sharpness that offer a glidingly smooth shave. All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and therefore any DE blades you purchase will be compatible with this razor.
To take the best care of your razor, clean the parts with warm water after with every blade exchange and use a soft nail brush if desired. Slightly lubricate the mechanical parts regularly and do not overwind any screws.
The product is presented in a thick cardboard box, featuring the classic Merkur branding for authenticity.
Merkur have long been respected in the shaving industry due to the many years of quality craftsmanship they use to create some of the highest precision razors on the market. When you purchase a Merkur razor, you acquire a piece of the highest shaving culture for a cultivated start to the day.
