Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I've had 3 shaves with this razor so far and love it . It is very aggressive but in a good way . The fit and finish of the 37c is very nice, looks good and shaves better. Well worth a try if you appreciate a good close shave and beautiful tool.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This is truly a great blade for several reasons: 1. The grip, grips perfectly fine, no slipping, (slipping is annoying!) 2. You know the spots right below your nose? Well this is how you reach the hard to reach spots and not cut to low down, or cut your nose. Turn the blade a little to the side, and with this slanted angle in the design, you have exactly what you need to reach and get that clean cut! 3. It is not a super aggressive razor, and with a "Silver Blue" blade, or a "Voskhod" you will absolutely find that perfect match for a bbs shave! The Gillette Platinum works fine for me as well. I have not used a "Feather" in mine as of yet, but I am sure at some point I will get around to it as I have plenty stashed. The two first mentioned above are my go to blades, and the Feather is my back up or for some specific razors I use them for. There is simply nothing not to love about this razor, and we all know that the brand itself speaks volumes of the quality which your going to receive buying one of their razors! Shave On brother shavers! Relax, Enjoy and have a great day!
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar.Everything I ever heard about slant razors came true with this razor. I get a comfortable, extremely close shave that, because of the angle (slant) of the blade, slices through your beard more efficiently than a straight cut razor. This makes a great second razor, and as I've read a thousand times, you have to try it, you just have to try it to see what everyone is saying.
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I borrowed my first slant bar?a Merkur 37c?and found it provided me with some of the closest shaves I've ever experienced. My preference is for larger, heftier razors so when it came came time to order my own, the 39c HD Long Handle Barber Pole Slant Bar was the ideal choice. One of the best decisions I've made with regards to shaving equipment! I get extremely close, comfortable shaves from the slant bar? no irritation, no nicks or cuts?just good prep and a light touch is all that is required. The razor is well-balanced. The long, textured handle fits my hand well and allows me to maintain a firm grip no matter how wet the process gets. I use this razor regularly, rotating it in with my other Merkur long-handle (38c). Great razor.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar Almost as amazing as the smoothness of the shaves you can get with this razor is the near unanimity of these reviews: everyone gets a smooth and comfortable shave from it. The received wisdom warns us that slant-bar razors are the most aggressive of DE razors. That's why I bought this Merkur. Imagine my surprise when the 37C turned out the safest-feeling shave of all my razors--and also the closest! It gives the impression that that twist in its head brings part of the blade closer t o my skin yet bends the rest of the blade away from my skin, protecting it. Bottom line: I get the closest and smoothest shaves from my 37C, as well as the mildest. This is really the only razor I need to own. I keep some others because I get a kick out of using the different styles of safety razors. But the 37C is simply the best. Period. Now, given the uniformity of these reviews, can't we resolve this by acclamation?
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.After reading what a slasher this razor is supposed to be on the various forums, approached my first shave (using a Feather blade) with some caution. Wow! I have a Merkur 34C, a Feather All Stainless, and a Muhle R101. None of them give me such a smooth, irritation free shave as this so called beast. After 1 shave it''s my favorite.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I bought this razor today for the sole purpose of putting it in my travel bag. My primary daily razor is a Feather AS-D2 but I'd rather lose a less expensive razor such as the 37C over my Feather and that's why I bought it (37c) today. That being said, I just finished shaving with my 37C about an hour ago. All I can say is WOW!!!! I thought this razor was going to be "aggressive" compared to my Feather. Well, I actually think it's a milder shaver as I couldn't even feel the blade on my skin! I heard it giving feedback with the stubble, but it was so smooth, so comfortable that at first I thought I was shaving all wrong. This razor gave me a BBS shave in only TWO passes (WTG, ATG). No razor burn as I just let the razor's head rest along my skin and it did all the work. I'm glad I bought this razor versus the longer 39C (sledge hammer). This 37C is so nice, compact and balanced, that it fits beautifully inside an empty plastic soap travel container. I'm going to let my beard grow out for about 5 days before I shave again and will report back with findings. Again, Merkur made a beauty with this model slant razor.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I couldn't feel how sharp the blades were with the EJ. Now, I can tell that the Merkur blade is not sharp. I can feel the blade. The snowplow seems to scoop up more shaving cream, so you can keep shaving longer without rinsing out. The small knob at the bottom is more elegant than the EJ. If you are going to get your first DE razor, buy this and put a dull blade in it, like a Dorco.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I was so prone to ingrowns and neck irritation that I usually gave up on shaving. I have never in my life achieved such smooth, CLOSE & COMFORTABLE, irritation free shaves as I do consistently with the 37c. I get a near BBS in 2 passes with this guy. It has literally made daily shaving possible and enjoyable for me.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I picked up DE shaving about 6 months ago and have overall enjoyed the experience. Much better than cartridge shaving. I have always had a very thick and coarse beard though and neither cartridge or DE razors really gave me an amazing shave. I still had to touch up all over after a couple passes. This led to ingrowns quite often. After some research I found this guy and have had the best shaves in my entire life. I couldn't even feel it cutting the hairs (I usually feel tugging in some areas). Highly recommend.
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar.Best shave I ever had.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I was a little reluctant to get this razor because I was afraid it would be too aggressive. I have ultra sensitive skin, especially in my neck area. Now that I have tried it all I can say is wow. I don't have anymore trouble with razor burn or nicks. This is the last razor you will need. It has a good weight and it glides through my barb wire beard. Just get this razor.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I have used several Merkurs, the slant is by far the best shave for me. It is surprisingly smooth. I have a light beard and I do not find it too aggressive. The slant design is very efficient; it provides a slicing action which allows the blade to glide better. Heartily recommended.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.Yes this is an outstanding razor and gives a very close shave, probably closer than most with the slant edge. I've had to slow down shaving a bit and take my time with this model. It's one of several in the rotation but I do love it's close shave, probably as far as DE razors go, as close as you can get to a straight razor.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I bought this razor a couple of weeks ago after reading all the reviews and I have to say I will never go back to disposable/ cartridges again!! I have sensitive skin and could only ever shave downwards previously but with the 37C razor and Proraso shaving cream and after shave I am getting the closest shaves I have ever had.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.The one razor lacking in my collection was a vintage slant. Couldn't find one in the wild and refused to pay the stupid money they were going for on ebay. I bought this almost 2 years ago. This razor isn't good - it's freaking awesome! It's beautiful, balanced, and shaves great. Why shouldn't you buy it? Since buying this razor, I have only used it and my 1956 Gillette Red Tip. Yeah, your other razors will get little or no use. I finally pulled out my 1918 open comb the other day and it was awesome. Your mileage may vary, so go ahead and buy this slant. But, you've been warned!
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar.Looks are deceiving. This is a great shaver. I have sensitive skin and a tough, thick beard. Good prep, a feather blade and the slant led to a nick free, comfortable irritation free shave. Proraso soap and pre shave oil and go slow, don't use any more pressure than the razor handles weight provides. Go slow and you will be amazed.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This is a great razor. Gave a very close shave on the first pass. Don't be scared of this razor. If your careful it should give you a great shave.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This razor has to be the absolute smoothest DE safety razor I have ever used in my lifetime. It does and extremely good job at getting your trouble spots such as around the adam's apple and neck areas. So far the best DE blade I've found for this razor is the Gillette Silver Blues.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I?ve been DE shaving for 1 year and have tried most of the highly rated razors from EJ, Muhle, Ikon, & Merkur. I own 7 Merkur razors including the Progress & Futur. The 37C is easily the most efficient and smooth razor of all for my combination of coarse beard with sensitive skin. Using a thorough prep for lathering & a Personna Medical Prep blade, it totally rewards proper technique and provides outstanding results. And, West Coast has great service and fast shipping - five plus stars!!
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This is a good razor. It provides really smooth and comfortable shaves. The purported aggressiveness of this razor is totally overrated, however. Compared to my Muhle R41 the 37C is a purring little kitten. All in all, it's one of the better razors I've used. 5 stars.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.there's more glide to it than my straight bar razor. It is a tad bit more aggressive but not by much. It too me about 4 shaves to learn the proper pressure needed. My first for shaves were too aggressive, leaving just some slight irritation. Key note - go slower with even less pressure.
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar.I had been using a Merkur 34C and really enjoyed the shave, it was smooth, close, and nick-free. I couldn't envision improving on that shave to any great degree. Boy, was I wrong. This Slant Bar is the next best thing to a straight razor. The improvement is remarkable. Using the same technique with the same Personna Medical Prep Blades, the increased closeness of the shave was really astounding. I highly recommend this razor.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.Started out DE razor shaving with the 23C but wanted to try something more aggressive. I used this before I had the whole shaving technique down and it was a little too aggressive. After 6 months more "training" on the 23C, went back to this razor and what a great shave. The interesting thing is that some blades brands that I didn't care for in the 23C were better in this razor.
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant BarJust wish it was a little longer for larger hands
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar "Best shave ever! Study the slant head. It's interesting
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This is my first slant razor, upgrading from a more entry-level double edge and there is definitely a noticeable difference! I love the feel of this shave, gets even closer than I'm used to and no pulling at all! Incredible shave for the money!
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This is my first safety razor. No problems getting the hang of it. Very Good Razor!
Merkur 37C Heavy Duty Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This razor cemented my commitment to DE shaving. Despite the tales of gore I read of this razor, I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! After two weeks of use, I've had one nick and one case of mild razor burn, both within the first couple days. It demands respect, but the results are like no other I've used. It's my go-to DE. And thanks, WCS, for another excellent customer experience!
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar "Great razor. Smooth on the face.
Merkur 39C HD Long Handle Barber Pole Safety Razor, Slant Bar.This was my best shave ever I have heavy beard growth but with sensitive skin this thing was awesome I did not find it too aggressive just pleasant all around highly recommend it.
