The MERKUR FUTUR 700 is a timeless work of art. After you have attached a razor blade with the Duo Clip, all you need to do is turn the handle to adjust the angle of attack and the blade gap exactly to your needs. Depending on the length of the hair and the shape of the day, you will always have a flawless shave.
One of 10 best safety razors on the market per Insider Guides
I’ve always used cartridge style razors but new cartridges have become ridiculously expensive, so I started researching what’s best. After researching, I decided to go with the Merkur Futur 700. The razor itself is obviously more expensive, but the blades are much less expensive. So over time, it’ll be much more cost effective. And my shaves have been better than ever. I’ve never had a shave as close as what I’m getting now. I’ve cut myself a few times but I’m still getting used to it. I’m sure I’ll get better at it but overall I’m really glad I made the decision I did and this razor seems to have been an excellent choice.
The shave is good where the razor can reach. Unfortunately the shape of it doesn’t allow it to reach close to the underside of the nose.
Wow! closest and most comfortable shave ever on #3 setting. Three passes and a clean up on #2. Used it with a Nacet blade twice so far. Excellent quality. The one negative would be if you have shaving cream on your hand the handle is slick. If your hand is just wet it’s no problem.

The MERKUR FUTUR is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process. A zinc alloy is pressed into a mold under high pressure. We opted for this method because it enables minimal manufacturing tolerances and detailed surfaces. The galvanic coating protects the safety razor from corrosion and gives it its unique appearance.
The ability to rotate the handle adjusts the distance between the blade and the comb and adjusts the thoroughness of the shave to your personal preferences. Thanks to the numbering, you can easily find your preferred position again. For example, you have the option of working long hair with a large blade gap, while the daily face shave can be done with a gentle blade setting.
