  • Adjustable safety razor
  • Chrome-plated, matte finish
  • Merkur quality

Over 100 years ago, Emil Hermes started a little cutlery company in Solingen, Germany called Merkur (or Mercury, this Roman winged messenger of the gods is also known by his Greek name, Hermes). Surely Emil couldn't have imagined a future in which his brand reached around the globe to bring loyal patrons exceptional products. But the future is here with Merkur Futur Safety Razor Matte Chrome.

Merkur has been fashioning this adjustable safety razor since the 1980's to give the wet shaver options in his razor. Once you've found your favorite blade (many we suggest a sample pack if you are still unsure?), then you have even more choice with this grooming essential as it allows you to dial in the perfect shave. A twist to the handle changes the gap between the blade and the bar giving you a more or less aggressive shave as your need demands.

This gem is chrome plated, with a matte finish: a simple, smooth, minimalist look. This high quality, heavyweight razor is 4 1/2" in length.

Made in Solingen, Germany

Beauty meets function perfection!

Futur is a beautifully machined piece of shaving equipment that is enjoyable to use. It's deceptively heavy and the grip is more secure than I expected with the smooth finish. Definitely able to get a closer shave than with either my Merkur 15C or my Edwin Jagger but it's less agile. The heavy and bulky head required some changes in angle to shave the mustache and chin areas. This is an excellent razor for experienced wet shavers that want to dial in the closeness of their shave but I'd recommend that beginners start with a more basic and lighter razor.

Small Issues

I really like this razor and use it to shave my face and head. Very good but with just a small issue. Actually, 2 issues. First, the handle is slick. It looks cool but it really should be knurled. I taped off the top of the razor and used two part epoxy on the handle. I then sprinkled sand over the epoxy. Now, it has a very non-slip handle that makes it very easy to use to shave the back of my head. Second, the handle is very short. I wish it were a little longer. Again. probably not an issue with you are just using it for your face. But for your head, it needs to be longer. Oh, one final thing. To adjust the opening of it you have to grab the head of the razor. The way it is set up it is a safety risk since your hand can slip off and hit the open blade. Despite all this, I love the weight of it and it shaves GREAT.
