This Futur razor together with the fine badger brush has given me the best shave I have ever had and Oso Grande Knives has given outstanding service. Buy this fine shaving set and you will not regret it.

I love this Merkur Futur razor. It is well made and solid. I also love the Badger hair brush. The only negative thing is that, in my opinion, the stand, although very nice looking, is pretty lightweight and not as sturdy as I would like it to be. It has never tipped and it does not rock but I would like it even more if it were a little heavier. It is a beautiful stand none the less. Oso Grande did a fine job, Thank you for your speedy delivery and nice packaging.

This is by far the best razor I have ever used! This is my first DE safety razor and let me tell you I will never waste my money on disposable razor's again! This razor shaves with the slightest help from you, it is an experience that I used to hate to do but now I can't wait to wake up and shave! Simply put this is one razor that will be able to be handed down in your family, just THE BEST!!! Buy this razor you will not be sorry.

Before I purchased this set, I was using Gillette and shaving foam/gel. Like most guys, I hated shaving. I decided to do some research as I figured I was either doing something wrong or there was a better way of shaving. Consensus seemed to be that the best shave was with a straight razor, but those take more maintenance than I'm willing to give. From what I was able to glean, second only to a straight razor was the safety razor. Also, a good shave depended on the shaving cream and the way it is applied. Long story short, I started buying C.O. Bigelow shaving cream (which can be bought in tubes at Bath & Body Works for $10 and is produced by Proraso. Very good stuff and lasts a long time when used with a brush.).

Anyway, I found that Merkur is held in high esteem, so I figured what the hell and made the investment. Not only will you eventually save money on not having to buy expensive replacement blades, you will get a better shave and you won't need to replace this razor as it's built to last. The brush works well conserving and applying shaving cream and should last a long time too.

It took me about a week to get the hang of shaving with the Futur as it's heavier and you can adjust the angle of the blade for preference, but by the second week I was actually looking forward to shaving.

I don't know how the "Futur" razor is much different than the "Vision" (other than costing less for what looks like the same thing), but I've never used the Vision razor so maybe it's even more awesome, though I don't see how.

I've been shaving with the Merkur Futur for two years now and love it. Very easy to change blades. The razor has a good range of adjustments. Start with a less agressive setting if you're new to wet shaving and work your way up. You may also want to begin with a less aggressive blade (like a Mekur) then switch to a sharper blade (like a Feather)as you become more experienced. The brush is a very good quality and with proper care will last years. If I could change anything I'd make the bowl just a bit bigger.
