At first I didn't like this because I felt the head was to bulky. I have used this for a couple of weeks and love it. Shaves really close with feather blade no irritation. I can get closer to my nose with futur then my Merkur 34C. The balance and feel is the best. Only EJ DE89 comes close in quality of shave. I also don't need as much prep with futur. Great razor!

When I bought this. The index on the 1-5 adjuster was not properly indexed (assembled) To break down and reassemble the Future (which does dot include these instructions go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuDCHb9-uJ4 Then when reassembling it it should start just below 1 and end right after 5.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Futur vs Vision, 6.9.2011
Reviewer: Jordon Berkove (Guerneville, CA)

While I love the Vision, it is large and a bit complex when cleaning which is recommended every three months. It gives a fine shave once I found the correct setting. I do find the setting system a bit off as it is not indexed or as easy to use as my first DS razor, a Gillette Black Long handle adjustable. The Vision is my home razor but when traveling or for the person on more of a budget you cant beat the Futur. Be careful putting the blade in and the 2 setting equates with 5 on my Gillette. or the O on the Vision. There are no cleaning instructions for the Futur although it is simple and I doubt there will be a problem.

Reviewer: CK (54235, Wi)

I am seriously looking to buy this razor, as I do alot of shaving and I have coarse hair with sensitive skin. Yet I am not sure as to what comes with this razor...perhaps I am blind, but I cant find any info anywhere that says how it is shipped or what comes with it. I feel if I am spending this much I'd like to know if any blades come with it, and if it perhaps comes with some type of storage tray.

Buying yourself a double edged razor kit may seem a little old fashioned to some. What with the proliferation of multitudinous electric models and the domination of the market by 'shaving systems' meant to be disposed of, this ancient technology may seem like an anachronism at best. Why should you buy a Merkur razor instead of picking up a Schick or Gilette at Wal-Mart and calling it a day? These Merkurs are truly built to last. The razor is quite heavy, something the picture cannot possibly convey, and as a result it glides across your face without having to 'tug'. Sure, the initial cost seems pretty steep, but you will literally never have to buy another razor in your life. The blades for your new razor will probably cost between $2 and $5. Compare that with the exorbitant prices of the American name brands and you will instantly see the benefits over an extended period of time. This model has a rotating head, allowing the user to expose as much or as little of the blade as he considers prudent. The bar that gives the safety razor it's name will be adjusted to offer more or less protection against the blade, so that on a setting of 1 a novice is unlikely to cut himself even if he is trying to. Please note I said ROTATING, not swiveling! Should you choose to switch you should be aware that you will face a slight learning curve, since you are likely used to a blade that 'follows' your face, e.g. the Mach 3. You will need to teach your wrist to swivel instead, and this may feel clumsy at first. It took me about a week to start shaving on auto-pilot, the way I was used to doing with disposables, without having to concentrate specifically on the job in hand. I think I nicked myself twice until I got the hang of it. It's not a seriously difficult change; I only bring it up in the interests of explaining to you what a safety razor can and cannot do.
