Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The amount of research that you can invest in purchasing a razor, soap, stand, and brush is exhaustive. Upon arrival, I was really not impressed with the packaging and the way the items were just stuffed in the box. The Merkur 38C Long handle razor is one of my favorites. This is a 3 piece razor with few mechanical parts to break or wear out over time. The weight of the razor is awesome. Please consider that I have large hands and holding a small razor can be a challenge. The shave with the razor will make you wonder why you ever shaved with a multi blade or electric razor in the first place. I wish that I could go back in time and hoard some of the "old man's" Gillette Blue Blades but, I had to settle for Wilkerson blades which aren't bad.
The brush, well, let's just say that it is in a Silvertip Badger brush and it is one of the most important items in a man's shave kit. The brush hold water pretty well but, again it is not a Silvertip. To me, this was the...
i'm a first time user of a double edge razor.takes some getting use to.a few nicks and scrapes but i won't go back to gillette razors or any other single blade ripoff ever.this is without a doubt the best and certainly the closest shave i have ever gotten.getting about a weeks shave per blade at about 60 cents versus 3 shaves at about 5 dollars.you may have to experiment with different blade brands and shaves to find which suits you best.right now i'm using merkur platinum and omega shave cream.may try something different later on.so far these work pretty good.do a little research on shave techniques .enjoying the new shaving experience.
A little pricey. But, a great razor. My husband was thrilled with it. Smooth, clean, shave and the longer handle is super comfortable for him.
