Merkur Futur Adjustable Safety Razor in Shiny Chro&hellip by Merkur
4.0 out of 5 stars The Future?, 18 April 2014
I have to say that my experience has made me rather ambivalent when it comes to Merkur razors - I purchased their fantastically portable and packable budget travel razor to find that misalignment of the head meant I could only shave with one side (Executive Shaving organized an exchange before I could say "Made in Solingen"), and a slant bar that I was left less than impressed with the finish (not so the Ikon that I replaced it with).
However, I have to say that the Futur is a superb machine. The balance, weight and feel are optimised for a near perfect shave. I find no difficulty personally adjusting blade exposure. Set at '1' it is almost impossible to nick oneself whilst… Read more

Pointless really to review an experience so subjective as a paper-thin wafer of stainless steel slicing through one's wet beard but a Feather blade loaded into both my Ikon OSS and my IKon Slant Bar is utterly and completely synonymous with caressing one's lower face with the briefest square of satin - joyful! I have not shaved with a more efficient, more comfortable or more reassuring blade. Even their relative high unit price makes their selection for me the intense deliberation of no more than half a micro second.
