Merkur 34g - Gold Heavy Duty Double Edge Razor
Merkur's model 34g is the gold plated version of our best selling Merkur 34c razor. The 34g features deep and dark gold plating, a heavy duty 3 piece head, and a standard closed-comb straight bar. The Merkur 34g HD's heavy duty head is thicker and weighs more than their standard (classic) head design. Merkur's 34g HD also sports a larger, weighty-er handle with a nice (and agressive) knurling on the handle. The closed-comb straight bar and the added weight of the 34g will help the razor glide effortlessly throught the hair. I find that I prefer a heavy razor, as it makes for a smoother shaving experience, and reduces my urge to pull/push on the razor.
