Merkur Solingen Futur Safety Razor: Satin
- Product Review (submitted on 8 March 2011):
- I've tried a few razors, sold all of them. Except the HD I got from here. I've left this one a long time to try, because it's such a big razor, I thought I'd never get on with it, then a mate lent me one. I was wrong, it's very good. Yes, it's big and heavy and bulky around the head - and it hides all of that very well. The weight is actually beneficial, as it gives a bit more grunt to less sharp, more comfy blades. But it's a very smooth shaver indeed. I tried a Progress, and it can be very harsh with some blades. The Futur seems very smooth with anything in it. Like the Progress, the Futur has a wide range of adjustment, so you can really open this up if you need to. I took off a star as I'd like it to be grippier around the neck, and care is needed changing blades, as some blades can pop off when removing the head.
