We often get asked what is the best safety razor to begin wet shaving with?

The video below reviews the three best safety razors for beginners to consider using. These are the Muhler R89 Black, Giesen & Forsthoff Timor and Merkur 34C safety razors.

The best three double edge safety razors for beginners, for a close, mild, irritation-free shave.

In greater detail the three razors are:

Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Safety Razor

The Merkur 34C Double Edge Safety Razor is one of the all-time top selling safety razors. It has a classic, two piece, traditional design. It is a mild, yet very effective, shaver suitable for just about anyone. German 'Made in Solingen' quality, classic close shave capability, classic retro good looks and it uses all safety razor replacement blades.

Muhle R89 Black Safety Razor

It's a beautifully engineered, closed comb double edge safety razor that's an absolute joy to use. With its engraved handle, and perfect dimensions and weight, the Muhle R106 has been expertly designed for control and comfort.

The closed comb head is ideal for beginners as the blade is not too exposed however it delivers a very effective shave. Experienced DE users will appreciate this razor while newbies to DE shaving will regret not buying one earlier.
Easily confused with the Edwin Jagger 89 - whisper it, Jagger use the same head, only the handles differ. The shiny handle has a non-slip treatment applied to it so you'll never lose your grip even when wet shaving.

Giesen & Forsthoff Timor Safety Razor

This Timor Safety Razor is made in Solingen, Germany by Giesen & Forsthof.
We recommend this razor for beginners to traditional wet shaving and for men with normal skin and beard types. This is a truly wonderfully efficient razor that shaves you closely with no post-shave irritation.

The Timor benefits from a low-profile head which makes shaving under the nose and shaving sideburns ever so easy.

The head is zinc die-casted with a shiny chrome plating while the long handle is made from solid brass with a shiny chrome plating. The handle benefits from a grooved finish that not only looks nicer than knurling this finish also delivers a firmer grip when the handle is wet.
