    I have tried wet shaving over the years (I’m 48) and while enjoying it with a cartridge I always got a rash and burn. I saw an advert on facebook for harrys shavers and thought I’d give it a go. A nice shave but still a little burn. On the discussion thread I saw a guy comment about single blades DE razors and after some research I gave this a try. Wow what have I been missing out on! The shave was close with zero burn. I love the fact you can try different blades and I have a multi pack on order from a different company as SL done seem to do that. I ordered sensitive skin products from SL and my skin feels great. I’m converted. Highly recommend this.

    I’ve tried other razors from Muhle and Feather but this is the best by some way-teamed up with Feather blade. Very smooth shave with hardly any irritation but you can hear it cutting in a very satisfying way. Great service fro Shavelounge as ever.

    OK – a razor is just a container for a razor blade. But this is a particularly good one. When I first opened the package in which the razor came, I thought that Donald Trump had sent me his old shaving kit – it’s a short handle seemingly for dwarf hands. But it works! I have very good control over the razor, which easily gets at the most hard-to-reach crannies of your face. It’s simply a superb shave. And – for a first timer – I am astonished that I’ve not drawn any blood at all. Great!

    Heard about these razors, so decided to try it out. Weird at first as you have to shave with more care than a cartridge razor. 1st shave no cuts and very satisfying and a fresh feeling. 2nd shave, maybe complacent and nicked a mole on my neck. Been using free merkur blade and proviso sensitive. Very nice soap. Bought pro rasp menthol and the loved/ feared feather ultra sharp feather blades to try out. Being an idiot, I nicked the top of my finger changing the blade over. Try tomorrow to see how it shaves but so far really enjoying this experience.

    Excellent, Just the right weight and feel with a smooth close shave. Having come back to a classic DE shave after years of plastic single, double, treble advanced rubbish I have learned the error of my ways. I originally shaved with a Gillette DE razor before moving to the darkside. I searched the internet for reviews and came across Shave Lounge, decided on the Merkur 34C and I am glad I did. Quick responsive service by Shave Lounge, I shall be using them again! I need to try different blades to see the difference but the Merkur blade was spot on!

    I have nothing else to compare to but this razor deserves the reviews. Easy to use and a great shave. My advise to first time DE users, follow the grain especially in sensitive areas such as the neck. Cuts back irritation. Currently using Merkur blades but haven’t really experimented. Nice razor :thumbsup:

    Looks and feels the part – nice weight and nicely finished. Tried my first shave and nowhere near as harsh as I thought it would be. Great shave and much easier than I thought it would be – slow and steady wins he day.
    Ordered the starter pack of blades so lots to choose from going forward.
    Excellent service from shave lounge as well – highly recommend this company

    I’ve only recently bought this razor (after many years of cartridge shaving) and have only used once, but so far I’m very pleased. The razor is very well made, beautifully finished, and nicely weighted (find the shaving angle that suits ā€” around 30 degrees ā€” and let the razor do the rest).

    The main object of this review, however, is to commend the Shave Lounge. Excellent service with super fast FREE delivery in impeccable packaging. (My razor was delivered within one day, and a subsequent order for blades took only two days.) I will certainly order from this company again.

    Five star service: highly recommended.

    Great little razor with solid build quality and superb manoeuvreability due to its small size. It cannot match the shave performance of the likes of ATT & iKon, but at a fraction of the cost it comes pretty close.

    Amazing and very mild razor. It provides a very smooth and good shaving.I forgot about my gillette mach 3 turbo after using merkur, so i will never go back to it. Highly reccomend this razor for beginers and people with sensitive skin. Better shave with sharp blades otherwise it would take more than 3 passes to cut off your beard because of mildness of this razor.

    Bought to replace a 7 year old 34c, and quality seems to have gone down since then. The plating doesn’t look as good on the new one, and it doesn’t feel as substantial. The biggest problem though is that the new razor is much milder than the old one.

    I bought this as my second razor and I absolutely love it. My first was the Feather AS-D2S and while that razor is of amazing quality it was too sharp for a beginner like me. I would recommend anyone starting out to begin with this razor.I am using the Derby razors that arrived with the razor in the sample pack. My intent is that this is my travel razor and the Feather is for when im back home.My main reason for moving from Gilette Fusion blades is that I wasnt able to shave every day as my skin would be sensitive. I can now shave every morning with my Merkur and Taylor of old Bond Street products. A much more enjoyable experience.

    Switched from using the expensive cartridge system and am very impressed with this Razor.
    It’s simple to use; just remember that you have to manually adjust the angle as the head holding the blade doesn’t move. I use this with shaving gel and get a shave better than any of the previous well known brand cartridge systems. An excellent product at a good price.

    Returned a faulty Merkur progress and chose one of these instead. Beautifully made razor as I know, I own the chrome version already, but I had to have the gold version as it looked great on the website,and on receiving it I was not disappointed, it looked even better. Great bit of kit. Also, Anthony’s customer service approach deserves great praise here as well.
    I shall return.
