Merkur 700 Futur Adjustable Safety Razor Brushed Chrome

5 reviews
  • Solid, heavy build
  • Adjustable "aggressiveness" setting
  • Chrome-plated
  • Matte finish

The Merkur Futur has all the wonder of old-school German engineering but with a... futuristic twist. The razor's angle of attack is fully adjustable, with six settings of aggressiveness—depending on how you want to start your day.   Setting your razor to 1 exposes less skin to the blade and is best for sensitive skin and setting your razor to 6 exposes more skin for a more aggressive shave.  

Unlike your light-weight disposable razor, the Merkur Futur will shave by virtue of its weight and solidity—no need to push down, let its heft and gravity do the work for you.

    Merkur 700 Futur

    This razor is the best. I bought a Gillette adjustable razor in 1970 when I enlisted in the US Army. It served it's purpose for 48 years. I then purchased a double edge razor based on a TV ad. Big mistake. I got tired of the nicks/cuts and did some online shopping and was fortunate enough to find this quality product. The length and weight makes for a great shaving experience. No cuts and no stubble when done.

    Best shave- great gift!

    I bought this as a gift for my husband. Here is his review: “This provides a very close shave. I no longer have razor burn or itching. I’ve never used a safety razor before, but it didn’t take long to get the hang of it. The weight of the razor helps guide you. I would definitely purchase this again.”

    Awesome Futuristic Razor

    The very fist time a saw this razor online I was very impressed with the futuristic look of it, but that was it. I heard that it was too aggressive, so my interest declined. Then, the more I learned about classic shaving, I found out that the world aggressive is pretty much misused. The better term is efficient. I thought I was going to slice my face with something like this. After reading great review about this razor, undecided to get one for myself. I was surprised how smooth this safety razor is. Yes, it is very efficient (aggressive), but that means less pases for a irritation free shave. My other concern was the handle. I thought it was going to be very slippery, bit it actually is not, even with my hands wet. The handle shape helps very much with the grip.
