Or look for an adjustable Gillette on ebay, that way you can adjust how exposed the blade is.

Or how about trying a shavette.? You can get cheap ones for about £3 they get super close but you need to concentrate, defiantly not a quick shave over in the morning but amazing shaving once you get used to them.
thanks for answering
I'll be ordering one come payday-- hope it's still on offer then.

Good price for the 34c - shame about their prices for everything else on their site as I'm struggling to get the basket to £30 for the free delivery.
The easiest way would be to add a few packs of blades to the basket.

I have the 34c which is great, but would like something a bit more aggressive, what would anyone suggest ?
thanks
You could try an open comb razor such as the Muhle R41. These let the blade get closer to the skin, great for thick heavy beards or to get a closer shave. Or you could try an adjustable razor like the Merkur Futur or Merkur Progress. These can be set to the exact level of aggression that you want. Or you could try a different blade in your HD, if you haven't tried Feathers then they will give you a more aggressive shave using the razor you already have.
thanks for that, I have tried feathers but they just cut me to bits, I seem to like derby the best out of all the razors I have, but would just like it that bit closer, I will have a go at shimming the blade first before buying another.

Saw this and thought it was a very good offer for those of us who like DE shaving (or those of us who would like to have a go at it). This is an excellent razor, and ideal for beginners as it isn't…

A straight would be better for precise sculpturing - you can see the blade edge so know exactly what you are cutting. Problem is they are not so safe.

Anyway this de razor recently mentioned here
http://www.independent.co.uk/extras/indybest/fashion-beauty/10-best-safety-razors-shaving-merkur-gilette-10111508.html
Safety razors are perfect for sculpting goatees/beards/moustaches/sideburns. It has a single edge that will cut all the hairs in a single stroke so you get perfectly straight lines. As long as you use very little pressure and hold the razor at the correct angle you shouldn't ever cut yourself when using a safety razor.
I use gillet with the extra blade thing for sculpting my goatee. it's terrible and I normally bleed like my face is having a period. will this be any good for the same. or will i die from severe blood loss. genuine question.
I've changed the deal as per the constructive comments above.

Thanks
Deal headline price should show £19.95 to include cheapest P&P... still a good deal though :)

Well mine arrived and I've used it twice with the merkur blade in the box. I've got 100 Astra on order too. I bought some tobs almond soap too and it's great. I'm not a modern moisturising man but I do feel like I'm caring for my skin. It feels quite weird like I'm missing something. After a cart shave my skin feels raw but it feels like normal no so I'm keeping this one up. Thanks OP

That's an awful amount of blades to order without trying other offerings. For me the Feather blades are my preference but I didn't make that decision until trying about 5 different blades. i did a blind test with a new blade, then a once used blade and finally a twice used blade. I then bought my 100 Feather blades. There certainly is no better or worse blade as it's personal preference. However it's worth doing.

+1 for Feather's - they are the sharpest and provide the most shaves per blade and in my opinion no point wasting money on something that will dull after the first shave; albeit there is a steep learning curve on how to use them and very daunting for someone starting out on DE shaving.

Yup I realised I should have done that but I read the HUKD thread on shaving and just bought all of that. The Astra ones are nice enough.

I bought a lot of sampler packs before settling on my favourite blade. I have not used Astra, so cannot comment. However, this guide is true of my experience with some of the blades I have tried - very specifically the 'pull' described for the sub-par Merkur blade.

I agree with your comments.

Please can you confirm if the HD comes with an original travel case?

Hi, no the HD doesn't come in a case, just a card box.
Cheers anonimousse :)

If you want one, buy one.

But please don't share your delusions of bargainicity.

It costs them 23p (max) to make it. This is NOT a bargain. Get back on the meds.


23p, clueless...
Use code tsr for 10% off making it £67.45 :)

Yes this site is supposed to be about bargain prices on specific items not personal opinions .....
Easier said than done unfortunately ....

The Merkurs are highly regarded for a reason, not because they are expensive.

Strange that not one person in this thread has offered a single reason. Years ago, when we all used DE, my dad used one that was bought in woolworths when he first started shaving, and had used for over 50 years.

A razor is like a fork. With a modicum of care and common sense, it doesn't matter if it costs 25p or £50.

Read this thread - it's pure snobbery. Like the guys who spend £20 on a cree torch when a poundland one is just as good (though might not lat quite so long). It's all BS.

If you can't see the difference between a cree torch (which will have about 400-600 lumen output) and a poundland torch, which will have 20-40, then you'll never see the light....literally....

Hi
If you are with the company couldn't you do a special deal for us site members? I missed out on this deal and the other gold Merkur too :-(

It's still on actually.

I'll give my contribution to this rather embattled thread. I've used this same razor as my first DE razor and I've also tried my father's old Wilkinson Sword DE razor using identical razor blades for comparsion. I can say both gave a close shave but the Merkur gave far less razor burn with the same blade.

I'm very new to DE shaving but for me I'm glad I spent on a good quality razor. I have the annoying combination of thick stubble and sensitive skin so whilst it may not make a difference for everyone, for me it's a more expensive razor of covering my face in tissue paper every day.

What makes this so great it's worth over £32 ?

Its gold and quality manufacturer ?

I think purely on cost I'll stick to my cheapy method.
What makes this so great it's worth over £32 ?
Always been tempted buy these but scared I'll cut my self to threads :/ .. currently using a razor pit and a gillete m3 disposable on the 38th shave and still going strong, got it on discount for £3 something at Tesco for a pack of three that will last a year easy! doesn't get any cheaper than that for me and after the layout for all the kit for these I don't think its much of a saving if any for me its would cost more. More importantly it gives a go close clean shave, as close as I like if before I look like I should be in school.

Who the hell buys second hand razors?
This is new.
Also, to answer your question, search in eBay via category: Collectibles>Vanity/Perfume/Grooming>Barber Shop and Shaving and you'll see how many buy and sell used razors...
bear in mind its got a short handle...
