The Merkur 39C Slant Bar Double Edge Safety Razor known by its nickname, the "sledgehammer", is unlike any other traditional wet shaving razor your grandfather had!

The big brother to the 37C is separated only by the handle that is shorter and a bit lighter in the hand. Simply put, the Merkur 39c slant isn't a safety razor for the faint of heart. Featuring a more aggressive slant bar construction which gives the razor a feel similar to a straight razor. This razor has a slant of 90 degrees and offers an aggressive shave, a smooth shave, suited for experienced wet shavers who want the best of both shaving worlds. A straight razor shave with a double edge razor.

The Merkur HD is larger, thicker, and weighty with an overall length of 4 inches. One of the most extraordinary safety razors on the market. Made from the highest quality craftsmanship that you come to expect from Merkur razors. The Merkur 39c when used properly delivers an extremely fine shave and the closest shave that can be matched by none other.


The Merkur 39C Slant Sledgehammer Barber Pole Safety Razor will last for a lifetime! The head of the safety razor is produced using a zinc die-casting process creating a DE razor with maximum precision even for intricate contours. The slanted shaving head may sound like a manufacturing fault but is absolutely designed for slicing coarse hair when shaving. The slanted head design and the angle of the blade makes it much more effective at cutting hairs, feeling more like a beard mower effortlessly cutting through thick stubble and facial hair. For weight distribution and balance, the long handle is built with a brass body. The chrome finish protects the razor from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design.


The Merkur 2-piece double edge safety razor design with slanted blade guard is characterized by the comb and top plate that are twisted against each other along the longitudinal axis. The slant bar construction, therefore, is very rigid providing a sharper shaving angle which gives it a more aggressive shave and a close shave. Used with focus and attention, you will achieve extraordinary shaving results.

  • Durable, easy to clean, and easy to use

    The service from Grown Man Shave is ‚ÄúSpot On‚ÄĚ. You cannot go wrong with the Merkur name and the 34G is no exception.

    The Merkur shaves smooth as silk. I found it comfortably mild and efficient.

    MERKUR 39C

    Merkur must be German for moderate. No crack on quality though, this is a well made item. My beard is pretty tough. I had to find a more aggressive razor and I was hoping this would be the one. I tried adjusting the angle and different blades and I never quite achieved a close shave, on my face. I did develop a bumpy chin from so many passes. I thought I would have to relegate this well made device to an adornment. I realized I had not tried it on my head. I never use the same razor for both. I loaded it with a Bolzano blade and had a really good head shave. This is the one but not for my face. I do believe this would be an excellent razor for someone with light to moderate beard coarseness. Grown man shave had this at the best price I had seen for this razor.
