About Merkur... Made with Old World Quality & Craftsmanship, Merkur razors will produce the closest, smoothest shave you've ever had. Offering a full line of safety razors, from traditional style to more modern Mach 3 designs, Merkur offers the best of old and new world.
I did a bit of research on how to wet shave with a double edged (DE) shaver. The main thing to remember is that you should NEVER push down on the razor. You should let the weight of this fine tool do the work. I made the mistake of pushing down on my face with this razor during my first shave and wound up hacking my face pretty good. After about 3 days my face healed up well enough to try shaving again with this razor. This time I used slow, short, deliberate strokes letting ONLY THE WEIGHT OF THE RAZOR rest on my face. And the results were much better. No more blood shed! And I got one of the smoothest shaves in my life.
Remember to let the razor's weight do the work, make slow and short strokes, and take your time. If you do this, you'll be rewarded with a BBS shave with little to no irritation. This Merkur Futur is a fine shaving tool which will last me a lifetime. Very expensive but well worth the money.
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.
THANKS Not just for the great prices but for your patience with me dealing with my "card" issues.... P.S. + the knives were great (of course) THANKS again.
