Merkur 38C is a 2 piece Merkur Safety Razor with a 3.75" long non-slip grip handle finished in chrome. Crafted and constructed with German engineering and manufacturing. This safety razor is called "Long Handle Barber Pole" due to the shape resembling a traditional barber pole. 

This safety razor is longer and heavier than the standard 34C but still suitable for all users due to the closed comb non aggressive design. It will be a great match with a classic Merkur blade or a more aggressive Japanese blade like Feather or KAI.

Classic, sturdy, and built for longevity, Merkur is the highest grade of excellence. 

Made in Solingen, Germany.

Only had it after weeks but it is well made and works perfectly


I've been shaving with DE blades for about 5 years. The Merkur closed comb models provide a non-irritating, smooth and adequately close shave. It is a fairly mild razor. I find this perfect for a quick shave without cuts or irritation. If I need a super close I can buff a little with this razor and get that and still have no irritation. This model has nice heft and looks great. I use Astra blades and Proraso soap or cream. All are great products. You might also enjoy the Merkur 47C which is slightly lighter with the same comb in a 3 piece unit. New England Shaving Co. has great delivery and price. Thanks!

Quality is a Must

I got my first safety razor at a Target, and it did the trick. But I wanted to get a higher quality razor. And this razor is so much better!! Much better than I imagined.

Blown Away By My Merkur

This is my first safety razor and it has far exceeded my expectations. The Merkur 38C has great weight to it and feels like a very high quality piece in the hands. I was nervous about beginning to shave with a safety razor but after only a few days of using my new setup, I can honestly say that I'll never go back to cartridge razors again. The Merkur 38C is a smooth operator and provides a very good shave that is much more comfortable, both during and after, than any product I've used in the past. My face feels fantastic every day and I honestly really look forward to shaving now because there is no zero irritation when using the Merkur. I'm so glad that I switched to this safety razor!
