Merkur 37C slant since you already have the 34C. It would be the default next step up in efficiency in the Merkur line.Hello,
What is your favorite short handle safety razor. I have a Merkur 34C and it immediately became my favorite. Thus the interest in short handles arose. Please share which short handle safety razor you like/dislike and why. I'm thinking of liking a few of these and making a collection.
Any help is welcome
Spreading the parts is unnecessary. Leave blades out is enoughI use a Merkur 933 closed comb (bar) travel razor. The handle is in two pieces screwed together to the two piece head; for a really short handle, the larger handle section can be used by itself. I have a second smaller section of the handle, converting the razor to a longer three piece handle for use in rotation at home. I also have the open comb plate from the Merkur 985 open comb travel razor (which fits with the top plate from the 933), giving the choice of using the razor as open or closed comb. The Mühle plastic razor head cover fits both configurations to protect the blade when the broken down razor is placed in the small leather carrying pouch. If flying with just cabin baggage, I spread the various parts of the razor around my cabin bag(s) to confuse security staff and leave the DE blade at home, picking up blades at my destination - I have only been caught out once thus far, when I could only source one make of blades that were as blunt as a hammer.
I have had a few close shaves (!) with overzealous baggage security staff unhappy with my broken down 933 (without a blade) in the carry pouch, so now try to avoid the queues of secondary inspection by spreading the razor parts around my cabin bag(s).Spreading the parts is unnecessary. Leave blades out is enough
I think that's a style variation of the little razor Cary Grant used in North By Northwest. In the film, IIRC, it looked like a miniature Travel Tech but was a good third smaller if not smaller by half.This should be considered a short handle DE razor.
Some people have actually tried shaving with it, purely for fun and experimentation; but I'm not going to actually use it as the blades are discontinued.
But as a shaving lover, I'd be glad to have this beauty in my den.

Yes, they are also one of the early portable hair removal tools for women.I think that's a style variation of the little razor Cary Grant used in North By Northwest. In the film, IIRC, it looked like a miniature Travel Tech but was a good third smaller if not smaller by half.
The Razorock german slant is even better!I agree with those suggesting the 37C. It just blows everything else I have out of the water, including the 34C. Same exact handle too so you’re already familiar with it.
It took down four days growth on a single pass the first time I used it. I could have gotten away with that single pass.
