I'm African American and a military officer. Clean shaves are a must daily and I've tried it all...magic shave, mach 3, Fusion (or as I call it mach 5), Norelco Nivea for men shavers and clippers. All had their positives but mixing chemicals daily became tiring and in-grown hairs were unsightly. So, after much research I decided to try wet-shaving. This has made a world of difference.

The Merkur HD is my first razor. Using Art of Shaving products and Merkur blades, I'm able to get a close shave with no razor burn/bumps. Occasionally I'll get an in-grown but I blame my technique (I still cut myself every now and then...usually when I'm in a rush). This razor definitely has some weight to it and I find the blade loading/unloading simple although not as cool as the "butterfly" razors.

I highly recommend this product for a beginner. Blades are equally as important. I have found Merkur blades to be the happy medium between quality and sharpness although Feather's clearly are samurai sword sharp. Make sure you get a good quality badger brush and shaving cream/soap. Good luck!

I must start out by saying I am one of those men with a beard that seems to be made of wire and skin that is incredibly sensitive - shaving has never been fun, easy or without issues since I was a teenager. The majority of my life has been spent shaving with those lovely cartridge razors that burn your skin and your wallet leaving you unhappy and with a dread of shaving; something that in today's world is nearly a must in all professional circles.

I decided to purchase this razor after 3 weeks of research into wet shaving and in all honesty with much reluctance to try something that held a razor capable of leaving you in need of stitches. In essence this was a "last resort" in an attempt to get that close shave that lasted more than half a day and didn't leave me feeling uncomfortable.

When my razor arrived, I inserted the Merkur blade that comes with the razor, lathered up and began to shave after taking a deep breath and resigning myself to potential nicks and scrapes...I was so wrong in thinking this way. The 34c provided a smooth, comfortable shave with no pulling of my beard, no unpleasant burn after each stroke and surprisingly it was even fun.

The 34c is brilliantly designed and the chrome finish and heft make it a pleasure to own and to use. The knurled handle offers plenty of grip, loading the razor is incredibly easy and it feels sturdy and stable in your hand.

My very first shave was closer than any I've ever had before and so much more pleasant. My wife is amazed and incredibly happy with my shaves now.

If this is your first DE razor you are on the right track. I must offer a bit of advice though: Do not think that the short handle is going to be a burden, this design actually makes it easier to use and to apply the proper technique.

3 months ago I made the leap from cartridge shaving (Gillette Fusion) to shaving with a safety razor. Having no experience with a safety razor my research led me to several options (most by Merkur) and I selected the 34C. The razor comes just as advertised and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of shave and the reduced cost of the blades vs the Fusion cartridges. If I had to do it all over again, I would opt for the long handled version simply as a personal preference though after several weeks of using the short handled model I have become comfortable with it and plan to stick with the 34C for the foreseeable future.

If you're considering making the switch to a safety razor:
1. Smart move
2. Consider the longer handle if that's what you're used too, I estimate the 34C to be approximately the length of a typical disposable
3. Consider a model such as the 34C that has a fixed safety bar. There are more advanced safety razors that have the ability to be adjusted but the advice I was given was that a novice should stay away from those as you'll spend more time fidgeting with the adjustments then learning how to shave properly with the new tool. Having just made the switch I can say that I'm glad I didn't have an added variable in adjust-ability. It's amazing how much you can do by simply changing the angle of the blade against your face and allowing the weight of the razor to do the work.

The product itself is a classic. This is old fashioned German quality. I would not surprise me if it lasted a hundred years or more of daily use it's that well made. I bought mine eight years ago. Back then I was clean shaven and one again I'm clean shaven. I've tried the expensive multi-blade super razors and they all left me wanting. I'm old enough to have started with a double edge safety razor and that is where I'm back to. The only challenge and it's a small one is local stores don't have blades worth using. You can buy a years supply online for $20-$30. I have somewhat sensitive skin which likes a good blade. It's easy to find blade samplers and then select that blade your face likes best. My choice in foam is old fashioned cake soap in a classic Victor mug and an old school shaving brush. The reason safety Razors are not main stream is a lack of profit. The shave is far superior and as an added bonus the environmental impact is minimal. The big corps just can't make a profit so they push an inferior product. If you need advice on how to use a classic safety razor do a web search there are forums loaded with advice and videos. It's easy and your skin will thank you.
