Razor Care

Most Merkur razors are made of die-cast zinc (top plate, comb) and brass handles. The surfaces are coated in three layers of copper, nickel, chrome. Instead of a chrome, the Merkur 34G Gold DE Safety Razor has a gold plated top layer and the same care instructions apply.

Throughout the world, tap water often can often be ‘hard’ – contain a higher concentration of dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium which can lead to limescale build-up – and, to some extent, chlorinated. In combination with the often fatty shaving soap residue, the durability of the razor can suffer from contact with these mediums the danger of material corrosion increases.

This makes regular maintenance very important - using a soft brush to remove light build-up and occasionally degreasing with hair shampoo or washing-up liquid prolongs the lifespan of the metal razor and removes matt spots. Separating, rinsing and drying the component pieces after each shave with also extend the lifetime of the razor.

How to use

At the beginning of the 20th century, safety razors with a double edge blade succeeded straight razors as the choice for everyday use. DE razors offer a close and smooth shave and although handling of the open edge requires a bit of practice, it is a skill that can be acquired quickly.

The safety razor shave is achieved through gentle scraping movements vertically towards the cutting edge. Horizontal movements of the blade should be avoided as they can lead to injuries. The edge of the comb serves to stretch the skin tight, so all whiskers are reached. The weight of the razor facilitates the gliding motion without the need for additional pressure. As with a straight razor, it is optimal to move the blade in a 30° angle to the surface of the skin. It is generally advised to hold the razor close to the head, but different handle lengths and weights allow for experimentation.

Customer Reviews

Good razor beginners & advanced especially to hone in technique.
Merkur always works. However, the finishing is a little rough on the inside. The inner tube is visible in silver tube and the gold finishing on the inside and bottom of the head is not very neat. That's why I think it's a little overpriced. But the quality of the shave is good, the grip is good, ease of use is good, feels good in the hand.

Cool Razor
I Love this razor, this is my first DE razor as I normally use shavette razor's. I bought this for my mid week shaves and I get a close comfortable shave with no nicks, it's fool proof ha.

Now I'm a DE convert and I will be purchasing another razor. The gold looks awesome, it's also worth buying a travel case with it to store it in.

Well worth the purchase

I own far too many razors: vintage gillettes, Edwin Jagger DE89, Muhle R41, Yaqi Beast are just a few. I enjoy different razors depending on my mood and/or beard growth. Most reviews suggest that the 34c/34g is more aggressive than the DE89 - I disagree

Stunning razor. Short handle but perfectly balanced.The gold adds a touch of class. Such a smooth and nick-free shave. Would definitely recommend.

I've been after another razor for my collection
I've been after another razor for my collection either a Parker variant or merkur progress to use as an everyday razor, I ended up settling on one of these after a while looking at reviews online but after seeing the 34c pop up everywhere I thought this would be great especially in gold as all my razors are silver so its nice to mix it up.
Great product and a bit expensive but definitely worth its weight in good literally.

Awesome ????
Just beautiful. My 34G travel for almost 10584 Kilometers in 5 days to arrived and which is superbly fast delivery! Gold raises the class factor up by a notch for a razor that is already classy on its own. Highly recommended for beginners looking to upgrade their shaving equipment.
