Mr Robert PITT –
Had my first shave using the Futur today, with a Feather blade. It was a very smooth shave , the weight of the razor worked with the blade and I had no nicks or cuts.
I did some research on line before buying and some of the negative comments were not justified, the reviewers must have been VERY picky. One user said that he was worried about getting a cut when inserting a new blade, to him I say, “Get Mommy to do it for you.”
Another was whining about the size of the head compared to other razors, I am an average size bloke and had no problem at all getting to all parts of my face.
I chose the gold plated version because I wanted something different, and the fact that it performs very nicely is a huge bonus. If you are dithering about buying a Futur, go for it, I doubt you will be disappointed.
I used setting 1 on the first pass and ended on setting 3, it worked for me!
Some reviewers say that this razor is “aggressive”, whatever that means. A loony with a Kalashnikov is aggressive, the Futur is just a shaving tool.
