Merkur Safety Razors are known for giving smooth, close, comfortable shaves and this razor is no different, it shares the same shaving head as top sellers such as the 34C, 33C and 38C.

Handle Length: 75mm
Compatible with all Safety Razor Blades including Feather, Merkur and Wilkinson Sword.
Those with large hands may prefer the larger version of the 30C which is the Merkur Long Handle 20C Safety Razor which has a longer handle.
The handles on both the 30C and the 20C are topped off with a chrome plated metal knob with the Merkur logo which is an excellent counter-weight to the head.
HOW TO USE
Ensure the face is well lubricated using a pre shave treatment and a shaving soap, cream or gel.
Shave with the razor at a 30° angle to your face.
Stretch your skin as you shave ensuring the area you are shaving is pulled tight.
We recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
Usualk Merkur quality, I've got a Progrees, 34G and a Futur. This one is very different - with its black non slip handle, usual top quality Merkur shave. works good with Personna Blades - avoid the Merkur baldes.
Arrived today, shaved this afternoon.
Yes the guys on Badger & Blade were right, this is a well balanced, finely engineered razor.
Thanks to E. Shaving for good service, fast delivery and for the after shave sample.
Light to hold but not especially a light shaver which is down to the excellent design and balance of this razor.
Very good, pleased to recommend.
What an improvement on the old fashioned traditional look, this is much better.
The black handle is deeply grooved so you get a firm grip. Super close shave with my favourite personna blades.
My first actual DE razor, and it's a great one: well balanced, easy and remarkably safe to use even for a newbie, and the textured handle (metal, not rubber at all!) gives you more control than you'd ever need. I've had best results with Astra SP and SuperMax BD blades, but YMMV!
If you want a beginner's razor or are looking for a very good all-rounder, this is an excellent choice!

Recommended to me by some guy at Executive Shaving, I'm very happy with the performance of this razor my first ever DE razor. So effective, no fuss, cuts through stubble so much better than the Gillette I had for years. I will never go back to Gillette again. For me DE is the only way to shave. Thanks for the advice ES.
I took the recommendation from Executive Shaving and thanks guys! This is my second DE razor having bought one in Boots for £2.80 I think. The difference in shave quality is night and day. I love this beauty, paired with Personna blades, Baxter shaving cream and Proraso after shave I get a perfect shave now.
I purchased one of these on eBay about two years ago because it looked good. Turned out to be quite a bit smaller and lighter than I thought it would be and seems a bit to mild of a shave for me but I'm used to shaving with an ikon razor which is quite aggressive. I suppose I'd recommend this razor to a new starter because I dont think I could cut myself with it if I tried.
A great wee razor, just the right size for me, gave me a lovely shave with Castle Forbes Lavender Cream and Balm.
