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...

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.

GREAT RAZOR

GREAT RAZOR Facilitates a great shave with the feather and Mercury blades. I initially tried shaving with the setting on 2.5 and just great. I have since upped to 3.5 and the shave is obviously closer. I find this razor and blade combo the be as good as some of the cartridge razors but without the fiscal ****. The only cons I have get are weight combined with little surface grip. If it were lighter, the risk if slipping would be minimal. I do feel that the weight helps with the cut by allowing for reduced manual pressure. Again I say, GREAT RAZOR.

Impressive razor

I have a thick hair beard, and even on the 1.5 setting it cleaned my face with no problems. It's heavy, but it was not a problem for me. Also, it's longer than general razors. A well done piece that is working flawlessly so far.
