  • 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

I get great shaves with this and I find it very easy to use. I will be honest I am not sure exactly why the slant is effective but I can say it is extremely effective. Highly recommend

Tied for 1st Place!

Merkur 39c Sledgehammer is one of my two favourite razors, along with the Rockwell 6S. The Merkur Slant (39c) provides an effortless smooth shave with zero nicks on my aged wrinkly face, feels great in hand and is beautifully constructed. And it cost me about half of the Rockwell! Very pleased with the product and , as always, delighted with Fendrihan's exceptional free service.

Could not have received my 95C at a better time. Was contemplating shaving my Christmas beard off and now’s the time. Took the clippers to the beard but purposely left some areas quite rough. I paired up my 95C with a brand new platinum blade and went at it. I like razors with some heft, and this razor has it in spades. With that in mind, let the razor do the work. It was able to handle anything I threw at it, even my Kirk Douglas chin. The tight areas under the nose was handled like a pro. The finish was excellent and the new opening technique, twisting open the two piece from the bottom, secures the blade superbly. The shave was the closest to a straight edge finish I have ever had first time around. Try it, you may never go back to traditional razors again. I don’t hand out 5⭐️‘s often, this is one of those times.

What a difference!

This has made my regular safety razor obsolete. So gentle on my face and can get the job done in a single pass! I am absolutely amazed and thinking to buy a second one for when I’m traveling.


Slanted towards a slant

I have to admit I wanted to try a slant out because the design of the cutting angle intrigued me and I was curious if it really would make a difference. I have a standard style DE which I have used for a while and have that to compare to this one. Well, I was really surprised at how close it shaves and how easy it is to use. It was as though I had never shaven so closely before and it does it in a minimal number of passes with surprising efficiency. It was as easy to use as my normal DE, and all I needed to do was 'gently guide it' with no pressure and the results were an extremely smooth shave in less time. Very satisfying! Some say it is the closest or equal to a straight razor.. I'll never know unless I go to a barber, b/c I'm not interested in that style of razor, but I cannot imagine getting much closer than this. Also the efficiency eliminates the possibility of neck irritation as long as the blade and technique is up to task. This is now my 'home base' razor and my normal DE (short handle) is in my travel kit. The weight and size of it had me exploring other grips and techniques which helped me get the best possible results. It looks odd but I kinda dig that, the finish gleams and I look forward to using it especially after a few days to watch how it glides through growth. Not great if you want to travel light...after all it's a "sledgehammer"... but you knew that already :0))
