This Futur Brushed Steel Razor is the best razor I have ever owned and used and it's stylish to boot. Highly recommend.

Well, the Futur is certainly well made. It could only be German! I would call it the Panzer of safety razors. Very sturdy and on the heavy side. It gives a good shave, but lacks a light touch. I have been using the Merkiul blade that came with it. I will soon change to the Japanese Feather blades which should improve (hopefully) the feel of the razor. The one thing missing about about the Futur is flair.
Perhaps I should try the Feather razor. It deserves four stars.
I bought the Futur almost four years ago and was always delighted with the quality of shave and how long each blade lasted. As I sometimes have to shave twice a day both factors are important to me. I have just replaced my original Futur with a new one due to wear and tear and can honestly say I do not think I could better the shave provided by this razor. Mankind as always are a pleasure to do business with and have superfast delivery. Lisa in customer care is simply the best.
Aged 33 and a life long Gillette multi-blade user. I decided on this after watching a series of clips about traditional shaving on You tube (search for mantic59). I used to think I had sensitive skins and the fact that I have really thick stubble doesn't help. This meant that I could only wet shave every other day at best and use an electric in between. By applying the principles and advice on these videos my shaving experience has changed from a REAL CHORE to a PLEASURE. Shaving really is an Art and if anyone has given this product a bad review are simply not doing it right. I should know I was one of you. Yes it takes some time getting use to a new style of shaving, but like everyone on this site remarks, it is well worth the effort. PS. My shave is sooooo good I only need to shave every other day.
The best shave I have ever had.
This is a top quality razor, feels solid and well built. As for the shave itself there is a slight learning curve but that is to be expected two shaves later you should master it and once you do the shave you get is better than the mach3 or any modern design razor by a mile, its not the number of blades that counts its the equipment and technique you use. I hope to get many years use from this product.
I got this razor after getting sick of paying out silly money for M3 blades. At first I got a few cuts and the shave wasn't as good as the M3 but now after a month of persevering I get a really good shave even just going with the growth direction, it is quick a skin feels and looks a lot better since using it, I guess that's because the M3 passes three cuts per stroke and this only 1. I use Geo F Trumper shave soap and a brush and I highly recommend you do the same. Practice makes perfect, don't press very hard at all and you'll eventually get the shave you've always desired.
Before I bought this razor I was using a Gillette fusion razor , but I got fed up with it. It was not giving me a close shave and hurt my face. So I had look at this razor , read the reviews and thought I would give it a go. When I first got the razor I was a bit scared , I have sensitive skin and this razor is excellent. I started on 1 and after 4 days I'm on number 3.this is the best razor I have ever used. leaves my skin very smooth and I get about 4 shaves from 1 blade.The razor build quality is fantastic and you soon get use to the weight. Just remember to take your time with this razor. buy it!
This razor is as good as everyone says. I used mach 3 before and struggled with razor bumps and redness post shave. Now using this razor in conjunction with a brush and proper cream I have the shave of my life. Easy to use too had no cuts at all. Well worth getting!
Great razor, ultra smooth shaving experience! However does cut neck a bit, however the trick is to change the setting to suit your neck needs! Great product, no problems once you get the hang of the settings!
