Merkur 38c - Heavy Duty Double Edge Safety Razor
Merkur's model 38c is a heavy duty double edge safety razor with a closed comb and extended handle. The Merkur 38c is a great high end and heavy duty razor. The handle design of the 38c lends itself to the art deco styled barber poles, and the added length on the 38c's handle makes this a great choice for ladies (the extra long handle makes it easier to reach all the way dow the legs). The long handle also adds mass, which makes the 38c a great chioce for those (like myself) who prefer a heavy razor. The closed-comb straight bar and the added weight of the 38c will help the razor glide effortlessly throught the hair. I find that I prefer a heavier razor, as it makes for a smoother shaving experience, and reduces my urge to pull/push on the razor. The Merkur 38c is available in a either bright chrome, or matte black.
