The contrasting polished chrome base allows for easy blade swapping and also adds the finishing touch to an eye catching razor. The razor sits comfortably in the hand. and the weight is evenly distributed along the length of the handle, achieving a well balanced easy to use razor. The handle is topped with a plated brass head which is finished in Polished Chrome. An elegant looking razor and an extermely popular favourite, always in short supply! Made in Germany (Solingen).

Product is also supplied with a FREE Pack of Astra Platinum Double Edge Razor blades with a retail price of £2.95.

How to Use

  1. A Gentle Giant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2014

    I bought this particular razor a) because I wanted a Merkur razor that was different from my others (20C & 34G), and b) all the reviews I could find about it were very positive.

    It is certainly considerably heavier than any other DE razor I have used (at 113gms)which tends to make one a bit more careful and allow the razor's weight to do the work. The reward is a very pleasing, first-rate shave!

    Ultimately this may not end up being my favourite razor, but it certainly won't end up at the back of a drawer.
    If you are considering buying a razor that has a good heft, is well-balanced and well-engineered - and at a very reasonable price - the 38C is worth more than a second look. Highly recommended!

  2. The best by far 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2014

    I have had many DE razors. My first razor was a 38C, and yes you always think the grass is greener on the other side.
    I went and tried a £150.00 Pils, a £150.00 iKon, and an EJ DE89. But ultimately I have gone full circle and gone back to the razor I started with, the Merkur 38C. It gives the best close in daily shave, all the time, every time. Brilliant value for money.

Merkur Solingen produce razors and shaving equipment as a subsidiary of the Dovo Solingen. The Merkur company and brand name were taken over by Dovo in 1996, an independent German company based in Solingen founded in 1906.
