    My first DE Razor after 30years of shaving with multiblade Gillettes. What a difference! Yes there have been one or two small nicks trying the different blades in the sample pack but the shave is far superior, smoother and more fun! The Merkur 34C has been easy to use and clean and a good weight โ€˜in handโ€™. The only thing that stops 5 stars is that it feels a bit short – I may be investing in a longer alternative soon.

    The razor is absolutely brilliant. Best shave for 20 years! The blade that came with it had a bad kink in it however and I couldn’t use it.

    This was my first DE safety razor and I am really impressed. I read other reviewers saying that shaving became a joy after switching to safety razors, and I was a bit sceptical. However I can report that it *is* a joy. Definitely a better shave than my old Mach 3. I even get out of bed 10 mins earlier so I have the time to have a proper shave.

    And it is worth looking up some tips on youtube before you start using it.

    Easy to install the blade, handle is a little fiddly in my opinion but only loses one star for this as it’s still been pretty good. My first DE razor so nothing to compare it to, maybe they’re all like this.

    I’ve just started odds-on DE razors and this was my first purchase. Can’t say I got it wrong and I’m terribly happy with the results.

    This is an excellent razor. Far superior to any disposable razor. It gives a smooth close shave which is effortless because very little pressure is required. it is also a lot quicker. Also less skin irritation. I am going to stick withbthis long term.

    As this is my first DE razor I am only comparing with cartridge blades and there is no comparison. Having used this razor for a few shaves now and no matter what length of stubble this is a much closer shave with no razor burn or rash post shave. In all shaving is a pleasure. Very tempted to try an open comb razor next.

    Also 10/10 to Shave Lounge for customer service.

    Surprisingly small, whilst also reassuringly heavy, I really like this razor. The distance from blade to edge of the body is set much more precisely than on my old plastic Wilkinson Sword “Classic” and I am very glad I upgraded.

    Having spent the last six months learning the art of DE shaving and working out what works (very well) for me, I fancied a change from my Edwin Jagger DE89 and feeling brave purchased a cut throat shavette. WHAT A MISTAKE!!! Halfway through my first attempt I was on the point of phoning the NHS Helpline to request a couple of pints of the red stuff when I thought it best to finish with my trusted DE to avoid further trauma.

    There was nothing wrong with the kit, just my poor technique and lack of experience. So having got that out of my system I logged in and purchased a Merkur 34C to see if it really could live up to my very very high expectations. I am pleased to confirm that it actually surpassed them!!

    The Shave Lounge team made sure that the delivery was with me so quickly my cuts hardly had time to scab over and I was all set. Using a Merkur blade I completed a four pass shave with total success. The heavy 34C feels so much shorter than my EJ even though it is only 1cm less on paper. The shave also feels more aggressive too. The result was absolutely great. No cuts or rash and my beard was totally removed.

    So EJ or M34? Ummm…. just buy both, and if you fancy a cut throat shave, just find a good barber!!!! I am a very happy Shave Lounge customer, as always!!

    This item is a dream to use. After using (v.expensive!) 4-blade disposable razors for most of my shaving life, I was cautious about going back to DE razors. Thought about going for a cheap Boots version just to see how I would cope but then decided against it just in case a bad experience would put me off DE’s.

    I’m glad I went for the MERKUR 34C HD as it’s not aggressive at all. Takes a little while getting used to it and I did end up with a couple of small nicks but not as bad as I expected. Shaving takes a little bit longer than with disposables and you have to be more careful, but the shave is so much more enjoyable and much less irritating afterwards, with a better result.

    I would highly recommend this product. Don’t always go by bad reviews as everyone’s experience of DE shaving is different. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it as they say.

    Shave Lounge was the cheapest I found online and includes free delivery which was speedy.
