  • Adjustable safety razor
  • Chrome-plated, smooth 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 coudn'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 Polished 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 (may 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 polished finish: a simple, smooth, minimalist look.

Length: 4.4 inches

Weight: 126 grams

Made in Solingen, Germany

Better than expected

I shave my head too.There is a learning curve. On setting 3 I got the closest shave ever. I am very pleased with my futur. The cost is well worth it. Believe me. I check reviews before I buy something. I highly recommend this razor. West coast shave had the best price around and free shipping.

Mixed Bag

I bought this razor over a year ago.....it's a tribute to German engineering and at the same time beautiful piece..also bought a nice leather case for it...this razor requires respect or you can have bad day...now I do use Feather...If I press too hard...or go too fast I cut my face..and I've been shaving for almost 60 years....I switch between this and my Merkur Progress...….part of my problem is the ever-increasing nooks and crannies on an aging face....I use a preshave...a good soap...if I take my time...its a win....I would say that any serious den should have this piece....just know it has a lot of heft...slow and steady.

Awesome razor.

I’ve been a slant head wet shaver for quite a few years, finding their efficiency helpful in minimizing razor burn as fewer passes and buffing is needed for me when I use these. Recently my shaving schedule has become more irregular because of work scheduling , and I wanted to try an adjustable razor so I can customize the amount of aggressiveness needed based on stubble length, and I settled on the Futur to try. Wow-what a razor! I started with the 1 setting coupled with not very aggressive Voskhod blades to start, and I’ve been amazed at the results . BBS on daily shaves with that setting and blade combination so far. I can’t feel the blade when shaving, but I can hear it as feedback is plentiful. I like heavier razors, and like others I use, the Futur requires no pressure to do the job. So far on daily shaves I haven’t needed to do any cleanup passes. It’s well known that the head of this razor is big, but it hasn’t presented any difficulties for me getting under my nose, although this is clearly an individual issue based on one’s own anatomy. The fit and finish is great, as you would expect, and the I like the bright finish. As with any razor, this isn’t for everyone, but I’ve been delighted so far with the Futur.

Great Razor

I didn't think that I would enjoy a razor that was not a TTO. But this Merkur razor gives a great shave and is easy to change blades.

Great Razor

I purchased this razor here at WCS a few years ago and found that with the Feather blades I get a great shave. If I haven't shaved for a few days I open the razor up to six and get a great shave, and for a less aggressive shave I use the razor set on three. I love this razor.
