Merkur/Dovo Merkur Heavy Duty 34C Safety Razor
Merkur's model 34c is a heavy duty razor with a standard closed-comb straight bar. The Merkur 34c HD has a heavy duty head, which is thicker and weighs more than their standard razors. Merkur's 34c 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 34c 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.
