Hello everybody and welcome to another safety razor review today, it was Muhle R89 Vs Merkur 34C before. And this chance we are going to talk about Merkur 38C vs 34C. We know that they are known as merkur barber pole, right? They have a lot of similar aspects, so that is why the review is needed so much especially for those who feel confused to choose the right or even the best one among two. In order to help you choose an option, we just try to make it into a review and comparison at a time. Here we go!
The Merkur 38C’s weight is 4.0 ounces. The grip on the Merkur 38c is decent with a barber pole styled spirals which winds down in a counterclockwise fashion from the top of the handle. The Merkur 38C’s length is 4.0 inches which is perfect knowing that it can allow you to use multiple different types of grips while do shaving. For the level of aggressiveness, it is slightly more aggressive due to the fast that is is heavy enough for a shaver. Blade replacement on the Merkur 38c is extremely easy. You know that two-piece safety razors are much easier to use than their three-piece safety razor counterpart and Merkur has amazing craftsmanship when it comes to a safety razor. The knob at the bottom part is very smooth when you open or close the headpiece. Finally, this is an incredible and well-crafted tool for wet shaving. If you have larger hands or if you love heavy safety razors, this might be your excellent addition to your collection soon. This is also a great beginners safety razor because of on how it is mild. Merkur 38C will truly last you a lifetime based on the craftsmanship alone.
The Merkur Heavy Duty Double Edge Razor 34C does not become at the top of shaver’s class, but it’s still a worthy model to have. Merkur 34C comes with a sleek, stainless-steel design, a textured handle, a double-edge blade, and being imported from Germany. The Merkur 34C is a great little razor with handmade in Germany and have a fairly nifty design. The razor frame also features a decorative design that makes the unit look fantastic. Couple that with the brilliant weight and you will clearly get a decent safety razor. A lot of razors nowadays are made quite cheaply. They often feature plastic frames that one day can snap like a twig under even the slightest amount of pressure. The 34C from Merkur is a completely different beast by the way. It has a sturdy, durable, stainless-steel design that is incredibly strong and even water-resistant. This makes you will never have to worry about your razor breaking if and when it hits the floor. Moreover, you can use it in the shower without having to worry about it rusting.

We have to mention that the biggest difference is the weight of the two razors from Merkur 38C vs 34C with the 38C being much heavier tha 34C. The 38C is also more aggressive due to its weight. You will end with a raw face if you try to get a very close shave with the 38C. On the other had, you will get more consistent shave with the Merkur 34C as well as a very close. IMHO becomes the difference in length is a minor issue.
