The 38C is the sibling of Merkur’s famous 39C slant model aka sledgehammer. This one has the Merkur’s classical closed comb head. it’s got the same long, heavy handle and feels great in the hand.
The 38C is a serious safety razor. It’s a 2-piece design, with a long heavy handle, with deep knurling on the handle for a secure grip. 2-piece razors are much faster when it comes to blade changing than 3-piece razors.
