Product Reviews
German Engineering and Luxury
Ever wanted to have a 500 series Benz . . . (me too) . . . well, this razor will give you that quality feel and performance. I purchased it as a gift for my brother (I already own the gold plated version of this razor). The price is incredible for the quality/value. Make sure you learn to take it apart/dismantle the adjusting mechanism (great YouTube video) so you can lubricate it once every few months . . . so you don't cut your hand or fingers trying to adjusted. The finish is superb and the feel in your hand lets you know you have the best quality razor. Just be careful with the more aggressive settings . . . because it is real and you don't want to find out the hard way. Enjoy your shave.
Merkur or Merkur
After 4 years of using a Merkur 38c I purchased the Futur. I quickly learned NEVER to adjust the blade angle with wet hands, sliced my finger nicely, took days to heal. The shaver works well and i tend to leave it on 5 and seldom adjust it. Blade changes are easy. The shave is consistent. Thick Spanish beard shave 3-4 times a week. Merkur super platinum blades work best in this shaver. 2015-06-26
Fine shave indeed!
Roughly about 8 years ago I switched to a DE razor and the Futur was my first DE razor. I started off at a setting of 1 and eventually turned it all the way to max, exposing the blade as far as you can go. Gives an excellent shave and after a while I was able to shave very fast when in a hurry, only cutting myself twice that the last 8. It will always be one of my favorites.
Misunderstood Masterpiece
Either you love this razor or you don't - I'm firmly the former. With a good blade, nothing else has come close to the performance of this razor for me. Aggressiveness for those weekend-long beard growths or mildness for daily shaving when you want it - all in one razor. Either way it's amazingly efficient - often the first pass is a DFS. It does help to do some regular maintenance by taking it apart and cleaning it, lubing the adjustment screw threads (I use a Chapstick, believe it or not). At first it can be intimidating - even a little scary until you get the feel and angle. After that, it's smooth sailing and probably will become your favorite razor. Give it a shot. Finish and mechanics have held up perfectly for me for over a year (so far). The heft is great.
DE shaved for 12 years and just returned to DE last week after shaving 42 years with cartridge blades. I bought the Merkur 41c 1904/1906 DE Razor and love it. Burt I wanted to try a more aggressive razor, so I bought the Futur based on your reviews. I love it. I shaved today on setting 3 and probably got the closest shave in my life. Practice changing blades since it is different, but this is the last razor for me. I cannot see any razor improving on this one! I can now try your variety pack of blades, and possibly fine tune things, but now the Merkur blade is doing a great job! Until I retried DE shaving after so many years I didn't know how great shaving can be!
This continues to be a daily favorite. I like the adjustments - it really helps to hone in when changing blade brands. The weight for me is perfect. It has the heft to drop through my beard with little/no effort, making for a very comfortable shave. Agree with some of the other comments regarding the handle - nothing a little plasti-dip or friction tape can't hanlde... gotta pimp yer blade-hang'r, :)
