Customer Reviews

I thought my DE shaving couldn't improve I've been shaving regularly with the Merkur HD 34C for a little more than three years now. You'll see my review for that razor gets 5 stars and the tag line "The best shaves I've ever had." I'll amend that now, because I like this 37C Slant-Bar even better. I had been holding off on purchasing a slant-bar at all simply because I had heard and read and imbibed the tradition that a slant-bar razor is just simply more aggressive than a straight-bar razor. Now that I have shaved about 10 times with this razor, I am not sure that I agree.I do agree that a slant-bar razor has a different feel and touch to it. In fact, the first thing that I noticed with the 37C is that it *sounded* differently when I shaved. What was a click before became more muted. It's an interesting sensation. So yes, how you shave with a slant-bar is going to need some exploration and learning. I will definitely say, however, that the experience has been worth it. The 37C isn't kinder or gentler, but it sure feels more efficient and less in need of man-handling. I suppose that may be what is implied when some people say "aggressive," but to me, an aggressive razor would be one that cuts you without provocation, and that's really any DE razor, when it comes down to it. The 37C simply seems to work better for me, but - as you'll read everywhere - your mileage may vary.I recommend that you try this razor if you have an interest in a slant-bar. The feel is different, for sure, but that's why I'll make this razor my daily driver over the 34C. 5Mine had the newly designed head and was fulfilled by Amazon OK, I will admit I have the razor acquisition bug. I have all sorts of DE razors from modern to vintage, Merkur, Edwin Jagger, Parker, Gillette, iKon GEM, etc. My first reaction to this razor was very neutral. The magic trick for me was to quit worrying about it being a slant. If you just shave normal it works extremely well. I was thinking too much about the razor angle and the curve of the blade. When you just shave normal it is a comfortable and close shave.There is all kinds of talk about slants being aggressive. This isn't an aggressive razor at all to me. And don't believe all the hype about slants being more efficient. Don't get me wrong, this is an extremely efficient razor, but it's an efficient razor because it has a well designed head. The safety bar has a notched design, and it is approaching an open comb design.The weight of the razor is significant, and for me it adds to the quality feel. The balance is perfect and it is a precision made tool. Merkur recently retooled the 37c and 39c head. I can't comment on the old design, but I can confirm I was shipped the new design (see picture). Most say the new head shaves nearly identical to the old, but some say it's a little milder. All I can say is it's on average to my other Merkur or EJ razors.The only other slant I have used is the iKon 102, and I was very underwhelmed by it. It wasn't a bad razor but certainly not worth the extra money to me. I also didn't like that the iKon only tilted the head of the razor, while the Merkur twists the blade. Does the tilt versus the twist make a difference; probably not, but you can tilt any standard razor to get this effect. I personally like the novelty of the twisted blade.I wouldn't go as far as to say this is my favorite razor, but it does earn some time in my rotation. It is a fine shaving razor that would work perfect for anyone looking for a daily driver or just wanting to try something with a different flavor. If you decide to get one of these, my advice is to simply shave normal. Don't try to adjust your technique just because this is a slant. 5Marvelous Shaver I have been intimidated by the looks of this razor, but decided to give it a chance. I have returned to traditional wet shaving about two and a half years ago, so my technique was down pretty solid. Yesterday, I had my first shave with this razor and I was amazed by it. Near BBS shave in two passes and some touch ups. No irritation whatsoever. No stinging with the after shave. This razor goes to the top of my favorites list. I usually would not spend this much on a razor, but my sons gave me money for a birthday and I pulled the trigger. I am glad I did. 5Absolutely AMAZING! Full disclosure: this is my 4th DE razor, and I only started DE shaving 2 months ago. I have a nice brush, Tribute shave cream, And Proraso preshave cream. I alternate between Personna Blues and Feather Blades, depending on beard growth and the razor that I'm using. I have fairly coarse facial hair, which is greying, and my skin is moderately sensitive. I have trouble getting a very close shave directly under my chin and on my neck.I started with the Edwin Jagger DE89. Good shave, but not close enough. I bought the Merkur Futur, better, but bulky and unwieldy. But better. I then bought the Muhle R41, an open comb razor which provides a very close shave, but is not comfortable to use, and tended to nick my throat area more than I would like.So I bought the Merkur HD slant, hoping for something smoother and closer. This razor is unbelievable. Seriously. So smooth, extremely close, no nicks, neck feels great, under the chin has never been this smooth. A truly amazing razor.Wish I had bought this one first. :( 5Second DE Razor and Loving It! I am new to wet shaving. I have been using Mach 3's for years and got sick of paying for refills. I decided to try wet shaving to save money. I went with DE razors over straight because of the time factor and I shave before work in the morning. I started out with the Lord Long Handle because I didn't want to put a bunch of money in right away. I loved wet shaving immediately. The Lord was light and very forgiving. Great starter razor for 10 dollars. I have been looking at the Slant for about 6 months but hesitated because of people saying it was too aggressive. I like the idea of being able to do a good single pass shave in the shower and be ready to go, but still take my time on the weekends and enjoy a good shave. I received this razor as a gift from my wife. I absolutely loved it after the first shave! it is more aggressive, but not overly so. The biggest thing is that it is much heavier than the Lord, with the weight and more blade exposed it requires attention to detail. As long as you go slow at first and you are very careful to just lay the razor on the skin (let it do the work) you will be very happy with the shave. I have a thick beard with very coarse hair that grows faster than average.Pros:1. Very high quality2. Possible to do a good single pass3. Cuts several days worth of growth with easeCons:1. Price2. I wouldn't get it as a first razor3. Need to relearn technique 5Finally, The Shave I Wanted It was my goal a few years ago: break away from the very expensive disposable razors, improve the shaving experience, and continue my reduced carbon footprint ways.I read up on DE razors, and settled on one that was touted as the perfect first experience razor. I also read that blades were very individual so I might have to try a few before I found the right one.Since I mostly shave with a small electric and with the razor twice a week, my learning curve was slow, but I found out the blade part was very right: this one pulled a lot, that one didn t seem to cut, and I was having a very frustrating time with my attempt to save resources and money.I worked my way through a lot of blades, trying this brand and that brand and never getting the shave I was sure I should be getting. In fact, I could take my wife s disposable razor and get a better shave every time than this highly touted DE razor and all these well reviewed blades.Not really wanting to get into the full-on shaving experience, I wasn t using the boar bristle brush and shaving cream. Jeez, with the disposable razors I could use my shampoo as lather and get a better experience than I was getting from the $45 DE, but I tried this gel and that soap lather, and found a really nice oil in a tiny bottle that did a very good job lubing my whiskers.Better than before, but still not as smooth as the disposable razor with just shampoo for lather.My attempt to save resources and money seemed to have failed but I was not ready to give up just yet, so I started looking around some more and read more reviews, and came up with this razor, the Merkur 37C Slant Bar.The reviews had said it was too aggressive for a beginner, but, unless you re ham fisted with an indelicate touch, I would say I would have done far better to have begun with this razor, not ended up here after a few years of trying this blade and that.I find the handle a little stubby, but the grip is very good and the balance works well in my hand. It s a bit top heavy short handle, heavy head but when using it the balance seems to work better than I expect each time I pick it up. The slant head is kind of strange, the way it clamps down on the blade, torturing it into a new shape, but the effects are very successful.I can use the oil I spoke of, and this blade just glides; the gel, it glides. And even with shampoo, loaded with the Personna blade I ve settled on as works well for my beard, this razor just glides. And the shave is closer than any 3-bladed disposable, and certainly better than my beginner DE razor.If you can trust the blade to do it s job, and let the razor work with just its own weight against your face, this razor may not be as stupid-proof as a disposable with floating blades, but the shave is far better. And, even if I wasn t saving money (less than $7/year versus about $120/year for disposables), the far lesser resource use works best for my conscious, too. I wish I d begun with this razor, but very glad I ended up here. 5Not the same 37c as it once was Merkur updated the original 37c design in 2015, the redesign made this razor extremely mild, not ideal for people with course hard whiskers anymore. in addition to the terrible redesign they changed the grade of Zamak used on the threading to a lower quality grade and the threads wear out extremely fast even if you are perfectly careful about not over tightening the razor, the chrome on the threading is very thin. I've had two of these last less than a year, where as my original version 37c has shown no signs of wear after many years of use. Typically the original versions of the 37c will last in the 10 year range, these new versions will be extremely lucky to last even 2 years. 1Outside finish is nice, threads on the head are extremely poorly machined. Based on everyone else's reviews, I expect this razor to function very well. However, upon comparing my Merkur HD 34C and 37C, there is an obvious difference in quality. A few negative reviews about the 37C have come in about the threads stripping and I can see why. I had thought the stripped threads was a result of overtightening the head or not oiling the threads to prevent corrosion. Now I can see that the threads of the 37C are very poorly machined and do not extend around the entire circumference of the post. The 34C is the left razor and the 37C is the right in the images. This is a weak point and may lead to premature failure of the razor. If I had known this about the threads I may have purchased another 34C instead for my son as he is now shaving.I am indeed surprised by this, especially considering that the 37C is more expensive. I will use it and tighten it only enough to hold the blade. 3An awesome shaver if you like a little heft in your blade The Merkur 39C Slant Bar is an outstanding shaver that offers you a lot of versatility in your morning shave routine. The Slant is nothing to be intimidated by for new shavers and you very quickly get the feel for this shaver. It glides gently on the neck and cheek while cutting in admirably in trouble areas such as the jaw line, upper lip/nose area and along sideburns and down the back of one's neck/collar area. The length is long for a safety, but for my large hands I found it just enough. I bought this as an alternative to my regular shave routine for those mornings that I don't have enough time to indulge in a straight razor shave and found it to be an excellent partner. It is a two piece razor, but it is a breeze to change the blade which sets straight and ready to shave with no fussy need for re-adjustments. The "barber pole" end is a nice aesthetic touch that doesn't get in the way, but I did not find it much of a bonus for achieving angles as some reviewers have. The shaver is easy to hold on to with wet or soapy hands, but it does have considerable heft which I like. The "serrated" comb, thought not truly an open comb is nice as it doesn't pull away all your soap before the razor's pass which, as predominately a straight razor shaver, I also prefer.It is definitely a real money saver and gives a much closer, more comfortable shave than cartridge razors. If you are looking to move into wet shaving and want a safety shaver with some weight to it this is a great, trouble free razor to start with. 5Excellent heavy-weight razor This is a high quality DE razor. It is a slant-type razor from Merkur, very well made and quite heavy (I have used many different DE razors over time and this is, by far, the heaviest). I had read online reviews that seemed to indicate that it is an aggressive razor, i.e., one which can be quite unforgiving. However, in my experience, this has not been the case at all. It does a very effective job in shaving and I have barely nicked myself once or twice over two weeks of shaving. I have used two brands of blades in it so far, the Merkur one that came with the razor and the blue (US-made) Personna. Both work well, but I prefer the Personnas slightly - blade choice is quite personal, so YMMV. It is best to let the razor glide due to its own weight and not apply downward pressure on it. I have found that three passes (with-,across-, and against-the-grain) with small strokes produces a very smooth (BBS) shave. One thing I have also noticed is that it does not pay to be too aggressive in ATG strokes - this seems to leave behind some post-shaving burn. A lighter hand seems to work very well - holding the blade around the balance point works well for this. The razor handle is very grippy and there is little danger of it slipping even with wet or soapy fingers.Loading the blade is a little bit more cumbersome than "butterfly-style" razors, but not really an issue. The slant head bends the blade quite significantly along a helical path and also varies blade exposure from one end to another. I don't know whether the slant made a huge difference since I haven't used straight Merkur razors, but, at the same time, I found no issues due to the slant itself.Overall, I am very happy with the buy. I have bought a "sampler set" of razor blades to figure out what works best with the 39c... More on that later.Update on 7/22/2017Some additional feedback based on a few weeks' usage... I am extremely impressed by this razor. The biggest take-away is that it works very well with pretty much every blade I have tried. I very rarely nick or cut myself, even if I am not very mindful while shaving. I am quite puzzled by reviews that seem to indicate that this is an aggressive razor; while it may not be as "mild" as a Feather razor, I don't think it is aggressive at all. Instead, it is extremely efficient and produces super-smooth (near-BBS) shaves with just two passes - one with the grain and another against/across the grain.This is a brief synopsis of how it has paired up with different blades:- Merkur blade that came with razor: Good performance. No nicks or irritation. After trying other blades, this does not seem like the best best option, however.- Personna Blue: This blade works beautifully in a Feather, but somehow doesn't work well with the 39c. Performance was acceptable, but I needed to do a lot more work to get a smooth shave - the blade felt somewhat "blunt" compared to others. I need to test it a bit more.- Wilkinson Sword: Excellent performance. I rank this blade as #2 in terms of how well it works in the 39c.- Dorco ST-301: Nearly as good as the Wilkinson. I felt that it was a little less smooth and lost its sharpness a bit quicker than the Wilkinson.- Feather: Fair performance. In my opinion, it is a bit aggressive with the 39c. I did get a cut over a bumpy area in my face even while paying attention. Others have reported that the Feathers work very well in the 39c - for me, it ranked on par with the Personna Blue in terms of preference.- Astra SP: Great performance. I was shocked at how well it worked with the 39c. I have not had a better shave with a DE razor/blade combo than with the Astra and 39c. I need only two passes for an absolutely smooth, irritation-free shave. It is definitely my #1 choice for the razor so far. The blade is made in Russia (by Gillette); one minor nit is that the blade has a couple of glue spots to stick the wrapper to the blade. This does not wipe off the blade easily at all. I am sure it has no effect, but it is a bit annoying.Update on 8/4/2017I thought I will add a quick update... As a test, I took the blade that worked the best on the 39c, the Astra SP, and swapped it into my old Feather razor to see how well the Feather does vs. the 39c. Wow, what a difference - the shaving experience with the Feather was nowhere near as nice as the Merkur. The heft of the razor and, I think, the slant head make a huge difference in producing a smoother shave with fewer passes. With the Feather, I needed to do one more pass to achieve the same close shave I could get with the 39c. Also, it did not feel as smooth as the 39c and also felt a lot less efficient in removing my stubble. Switching the blade back to the 39c, I could verify that the razor was making the difference since the shave experience with the same blade in the 39c got a lot better. I also have my routine nailed down to 2 passes, 1 WTG and 1 ATG, with slight touch-ups in hard to get to areas.So, 39c with Astra SP FTW so far! 5
