What is the main difference with these razors?

Thanks

The heads are all similar so you should get a very similar shave with all three; the 34C has a short and thick handle which might be easier to maneuver; the 38C has a long and thick handle and it is quite a substantial razor in weight (120g); the 180 is, I believe, the 23C which has a long and very thin handle making it a very light razor.
Personally, I would suggest the 34C for a great, overall razor, but that would be up to you.
Good luck.

Agreed. I've got both the 34C and 38C. The 34C is much easier to maneuver and I get a better overall shave.

The 38C I've found a little large for my liking - maneuverability is so key with razors.

Yeah, the 38C is a large razor. Both it and the 180 have 100mm (4 inch) handles, but the 180 handle is slimmer. I have found that the 34C is as near a perfect all-around razor as could be wished, especially when price is considered, and I like the shorter "bulldog" length for maneuverability.
If I were advising someone on the choice of a first DE razor, my recommendation would be the Merkur 34C. I would add that it's very important to get a sampler of blades at the same time, because the Merkur blade the razor comes with seems to find little favor among shavers.
This is surprising, seeing that they're made in Solingen, Germany — fabled home to some of Europe's best steel makers……………go figure.
