Whether matt or flashy chrome - the MERKUR FUTUR 701 is a timeless work of art. After attaching a razor blade with the Duo Clip, a rotation on the handle is sufficient to precisely adjust the shaving angle and blade gap to your exact needs. All you need to get that perfect shave!.
This razor is the "Porsche" of razors. Quality is superb. I learned to use a light touch for best results. (I wish Merkur offered a matching razor stand like a "DEDGE" stand.)
For beginner to wet shaving with DE blade, this model is the best. I used 37C before and needed to learn the techniques but this one is easy to use right of the bat. Recommended!

The MERKUR FUTUR is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process. Here, a zinc alloy is pressed into a mould under high pressure. We chose this method because it creates instruments with maximum precision and refinement. The galvanic coating protects the safety razor from corrosion and gives it its unique appearance.
You can adjust the distance between blade and comb with a quick rotation of the handle. This way you can tune the thoroughness of the shave to your personal preference. For example, you can work long hair with a large blade gap, while the daily facial shave can be done with a gentle blade setting.
