Well, THAT was easy!
I’ve been shaving with Mach 3 Turbo for many years, but was really interested in trying the old school method.
After reading reviews on many razors, I decided to splurge on this one. I used my favorite brush and Jack Black Supreme Cream.
Following advice from reviews, I applied no pressure and let the weight of the razor just rest on my skin. The strokes were easy and pain free, and the result was closer than Mach 3.
Obviously, there is more potential for nicks with these, but I was surprised how easy and effective it was.
If you are wavering and not sure about trying this razor – go for it.
Nothing can beat the original safety razors with their replaceable double-edged blades that provide a smooth, clean shave. The very best are hand-crafted by Merkur in Solingen, Germany and this decorative model of traditional design is as reassuringly heavy in the hand as they come.

Just as advertised 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…
Good for beginners and built to last a lifetime! 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…
