The Merkur 39C Slant Sledgehammer Double-Edge Safety Razor has a slanted blade guard inducing a slicing motion during shaving. A sturdy handle, which is almost double the weight of the Merkur HD, completes this modern and elegant design.

Compatible with all standard double edge blades (i.e. Astra, Derby, Merkur and Feather). Most of our customers who are trying out a safety razor for the first time recommend also buying a razor blade sampler as an affordable way to figure out which blade brand is best suited to their skin type, style of shaving and razor type, before making a purchase of a large quantity of blades of a single brand.

Weight: 4.25 oz (120 g)
Length: 4" (10 cm)
Made in Germany
UPC/EAN code: 4045284012475

This razor is truly amazing, it is a very close shave, has to be the best Safety razor shave possible. Its a very solid and heavy razor, feels great in your hand. The blade is locked down and never loosens unlike other DE razors I've tried. As far as blades go I've tried Shark, Astra and the Merkur blade which all worked very well, only the Gardilla blade seemed thin and chattered but still decent. I don't think I have tough skin but I had no issues cutting myself, I was cautious at first because of the reviews I read here but eventually sped up, it doesn't seem any less safe than a regular DE razor, no patience required. There is no difference between sides, I can turn over the razor and keep on shaving exactly the same way. This is now my daily razor, I keep the straight razor for the days I have the time. This razor shaves with ease and plows through a thick growth easily undoubtedly another advantage of the slant.

I bought this razor from Fendrihan and it arrived on time and well packaged. The razor is hefty and solid-feeling; built to outlast it's buyer. I've tried both Feather blades and Personna (from Israel), and I'm very impressed with with the Sledgehammer so far. I'm going to try Shark blades next. The only caveat I have (and reason for me giving 4 rather than 5 stars) is that from my experience, you really have to take your time if you want a really close shave. I usually shave with the grain, across the grain, and finally, against the grain, and have found this razor requires some additional care and time...otherwise you can easily cut yourself quite easily. If you're willing to be a little patient, however, you'll have a great shave with this razor.

I had been using my 34C HD from Fendrihan for the past year and a half and felt I wanted to try something slightly more aggressive. After doing some research and reading reviews, I decided to order the sledgehammer. When my package was listed as shipped and delivered by Canada Post I had not actually received it. I notified Fendrihan and they filed a claim with CP and days later another one was re-shipped at no extra charge. Amazing! The customer service in the email follow ups was fantastic and I couldn't be happier with my new sledgehammer. It's the perfect progression up from the 34C HD...one smooth glide. Do not hesitate to pick up this razor!

The first time I used it with a Feather yellow blade, I felt very happy for the close shave but very upset because I had a lot of knicks and irritation. I was ready to just give it to a friend of mine who has very thick facial hair. I decided to give it another try a couple of days later and the second shave it was as good as the first one with just much less irritation. More experience was needed from my part, to be able to enjoy and appreciate a "Mustang" of a razor as the Merkur 39C. Now I use it twice a week with the Precision blades that are a bit less sharp than the Feather and I LOVE IT. Very well balanced, heavy, long handle and beautiful finish. The sledgehammer rivals my Edwin Jagger. It is awesome.

This has become my favorite razor. For my sensitive skin and tough beard it is the perfect combination. Since it is more efficient, less effort is needed to get a smooth shave and thus I get less irritation (actually no irritation). Don't be afraid of trying it. It may look scary but in use it is anything but and is very intuitive. I have yet to get a nick or even a single weeper from this razor. I haven't even had the inclination to use my other razors since getting this one. It's that good.

Everything I ever heard about slant razors came true with this razor. I get a comfortable, extremely close shave that, because of the angle (slant) of the blade, slices through your beard more efficiently than a straight cut razor (compare a guillotine to a butcher knife -- the slight angle just slides through the beard). It's heavy and definitely makes a great second razor, and as I've read a thousand times, you have to try it, you just have to try it to see what everyone is saying.
