Ask Aaron Q/A: The Merkur Futur Razor

ask aaron image

Brian Harvey, from the UK, asks:

“Merkur Futur razor – which of the two finishes (satin or shiny chrome) is the least slippery to hold whilst shaving?”

Merkur Futur 760 Safety Razor with Satin Chrome Finish
Merkur Futur 760 Safety Razor with Satin Chrome Finish


“Mr. Harvey,
I have yet to compare the two side by side, but if i were to guess I would say that the matte finish razor would be easier to hold. However my guess is there wouldn’t be much of a notable difference. Whatever you choose, stay smooth!

Smooth shaving,
