Merkur 701 Futur Polished Chrome Adjustable Safety Razor

4 reviews
  • Solid, heavy build
  • Adjustable "aggressiveness" setting
  • Chrome-plated
  • Impeccably polished

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.

    Efficient and smooth

    Some efficient razors feel rough on your face. I don't know how Merkur did it but this razor is extremely efficient and very smooth at the same time. This is definitely one of may favorite safety razors.

    Solid Razor

    The narrative is correct about the heft of the razor. It has a very solid feel and the weight helps it to provide a nicely close shave. The polished chrome has a good feel and it is easy to hold and not at all slippery. I was very pleased with the results and give it an excellent review. It turned out to be better than I expected.
