I have been shaving with a double edge razor since the 1950s. I originally had Gilette Razors--eventually owning three of them--an ajustable--I think it was called the "fat boy,"-- a standard size butterfly opening Gillette, and a long handle one I believe was called the "knack." When double edge razors no longer were available in stores I thought I had better hang onto the Gillette razors because I believed double edge razors were extinct. Only in about the last five years have I learned that double edge razors are not extinct after all. Since that time I have accumulated three different Parker razors, three English razors (I don't recall the name at the moment), and four Merkur razors. At first I thought the English razors were going to be the best, but the more I used the Merkur Razors the more I loved them--except for the adjustable model. That one is too large, ackward to use, and no setting I have tried comes close to the standard Merkur Razors. I have the Merkur Classic, the long handled model, and also the heavy duty one. I love them all except for the adjustable. I have recently compared them with my old Gillettes. The Merkur razors win out, hands down. I really mean it when I call the Merkur razors the best in the world. They give amazingly close shaves--nothing gets closer, in my opinion--and they do it very safely. I almost never nick myself. I truly love these razors, and with more than 50 years of shaving experience I feel I know what I am talking about.

Hey, what can I say? Merkur Classic D.E. razor is just that..A CLASSIC! If you are new to double edge razors "wet shaving" consider this but in the HD version (heavier). You can view everything you need to know by visiting youtube and by searching "wet shaving". Their you will find many good informational videos on this subject. One of my favorite posters is a guy named mantic59. Once you learn, and practice this lost art, you will find that these razors are the absolute best for your skin, beard reduction and pocket book. With the avg 5 blade disposable costing about 3-$5 dollars, you will be pleased to discover that not only does this razor give a better-more comfortable shave, but it will cost you about $.50 cents per week on blades. Lots of blade options (buy online or WalMart) Feather, crystal, Derby etc, etc. Hey, and don't forget the shave brush and cream..lots of good stuff. Men should/need to shave every why not have fun and enjoy it?

I've shaved with electric and disposable razors for decades. I have recently used the 3 and 4 blade wonders for as long as they've been out. I've never been satisified with them. Hard to clean, seem to dull fast.

I recall my dad had a similar razor to this Merkur when I was a kid. I decided to buy it and give it a try. Wow, what a difference. Close shave first time. Didn't have to go back over areas, it was a BREEZE to clean! Keeping the blad clean and dry seems to be a cinche with this. You have to shave a LOT slower and take your time. I'll have to get used to that. But, amazing.

About this model in particular. After all these years using the 3 and 4 blade models, I've been used to longer handles. This has a shorter handle. It has a good feel, nice weight to it, but my next razor like this will be the long handle. The models I remember my dad using had a twist release on the bottom of the handle. These are the "butterfly open" razors. This is not. With this model, the handle unscrews from the top and separates into three pieces for you to change out the blades. This is not a good or bad comment, just a comment so you are aware of that. It's simple, not much to break. I give this a 5 star. Very very pleased! I'll NEVER go back to those cartridge razors. HUGE waste of money. Buy a safety razor!

In my intro to wet shaving, i am one of those who loves to research and learn as much as i can to make hopefully the best decision i can. (of course along the way you learn things that help you make better decisions after your initial decisions, and realize some things you didnt know to factor in in your original decision).

If you read around the internet, you will hear a lot about these 1 razors (Merkur 34c/Safety Razor vs Edwin Jagger de89). Many will claim one or the other is better for different reasons (with seemingly the Merkur being the "old school" choice and established choice while the EJ the "flashier" of the two and seemingly the "newcomer".

I originally chose the ej de89 b/c of how "smooth" and forgiving everybody said it was, while yet giving an exceptional smooth shave *(thus satisfying for both the beginner and pro). It definitely delievered. But unfortunately my iKon Bulldog handle for it (to add some weight and grip) one day broke the securing screw on my EJ DE89. I was devastated.

However that gave me a chance to then try the Merkur 34c (albeit I ordered the classic safety razor (3-piece instead of 2-piece razor) so I could use my iKon Bulldog handle to basically "frankenrazor" it to be just like a 34c. I had foudn some obscure personal review where a similar shaver like me (thick coarse hair, sensitive skin) claimed the Merkur provided a "closer shave" due to it being slightly more aggressive than the EJ.

So that is the backstory and setup for this review, In a nutshell, if you are deciding between the Merkur 34c/33c or similar vs the EJ de89 series as a starter.. the Merkur is definitely sturdier, better grip, and a moderately more aggressive shave.
