Merkur, from Solingen in Germany, manufactures some of the world's most well-regarded double edge safety razors. Their attention to detail makes for a consistent, quality product that will last for many years.
The Merkur 34C is a favourite for wet shavers of all experience levels, owing to its smooth action and low-irritation shave. The weighty handle helps the blade to slice through stubble with ease, and the knurling means a secure grip even with wet hands.
Blade replacement is easy, thanks to the razor's simple 2-piece design. Simply loosen the knurled nut at the base of the handle, and the head of the razor will slide right out.
