  • 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

Classic

I first saw the razor on the television show "how it's made" when it first was put on the market. I made the switch to this razor in the early 1990s. I have used the same one since that time without a failure of precision of the product. It is amazingly well made and provides the best results for a close and smooth shave. Bravo!

Solid and Dependable

I love this razor. I currently use a Rockwell featherlight coated blade and get a couple shaves out of them. The ergonomics of this razor are fantastic. I think it will perform well for many years. I have course thick facial hair and baby soft fuzz at the top of my head. This shaves my face and head well. I like using the 1.5-2.0 settings. I’ve tried several different razors. From classic resharpening to electric and the latest razors alleged to be the best angle. This razor performs as a razor should—cuts cleanly, efficiently, and easy to clean.

Merkur Futur

Excellent razor with innovative design. I don’t find it aggressive if you use the right setting for the right beard growth.

Merkur adjustable safety razor

Very elegant and utilitarian razor. I gave it 4 stars for lack of an insert that describes how the rotating bevel works ie 1 is aggressively close 8 is close. Conflicted about overall bang for the buck.

Fits my hand well

I have a large hand and this razor fits it perfectly. I've only used the settings on the mild end so far, but the shaves are great - will try different settings in the future.
