If you have chosen wet shaving as your method of shaving then the Merkur Futur 700 is your razor because it can provide the best wet shave possible and after you would be done shaving with this, your face would feel as smooth as velvet. Many people have this question: Merkur Futur – should you buy an adjustable razor? We would say that the choice is all yours because if you are an expert shaver and think that you can easily handle an adjustable blade then you would find that you would have fun with Merkur Futur.
The series of Merkur Futur has three different razors i.e. the matte (700), polished chrome (701) and the gold plated (702) so depending on your budget, you can go for any that you want.
Blade of Merkur Futur 700
The blade of this razor is very sharp which is why it is able to do its job well but it is so sharp that you might cut yourself when you are loading the bay. The one thing different about the blade in this razor is that unlike the other Merkur razors, this has a clip for loading the blade. While this makes the whole loading process easier, the user needs to be attentive while doing this because the blade can nick.
Another reason that this blade is considered to be the best is that there are 6 levels of aggressiveness or it can be said that as you progress onto the higher levels, the blade reveals itself more. If you are going for a mild shave then you should stick to level one but if you want a smooth shave then level 3 is good enough for that but remember to shave carefully.
