  • 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.

Handle Length: 4 1/2 inches

Weight: 4.5 ounces

    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.

    My new favorite razor

    I love German engineering and this razor is the epitome of German engineering. Very clean design and beautiful to look at and hold. I love the chrome finish on this. This razor is heavy at 4.5oz but it's bulk is what makes it a joy to shave with. The weight helps gravity to do it's job and move itself across your face. You can set the razor to be very aggressive and the weight can move it faster than you might like. 1 is the least aggressive and 6 the most aggressive. I first set it to 3 which was a little too aggressive for my first shave with it. My second shave I set it to 1 and then over the next few shaves worked my way back to 3 which is a good setting for me. Now I have the hang of this and I am getting great shaves with it. I also picked up the case for this so I can bring it with me when I travel. You won't regret buying this razor.
