The MERKUR 34 razor series are also known among fans under the abbreviation “”HD””, short for heavy duty. The safety razor has earned this compliment over the last 80 years due to its massive weight. But the gold-plated 34G is also refined: few other razors can compete with the smooth, comfortable shave this classic delivers! The head of the safety razor is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process since it creates instruments with maximum precision even for complex shapes. In order to ensure a comfortable weight distribution, Merkur only use brass for the handle. The galvanic coating is completed with elegant 24-karat gold plating. A safety razor with a closed comb is the all-rounder for classic wet shaving. Intuitively, you will feel the best shaving angle for your safety razor and immediately achieve ideal shaving results. The generous blade gap allows high soap flow protecting the razor head from clogging with cut hair or lather residue.
