The MERKUR FUTUR is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process. Here, a zinc alloy is pressed into a mould under high pressure. We chose this method because it creates instruments with maximum precision and refinement. The galvanic coating protects the safety razor from corrosion and gives it its unique appearance.
You can adjust the distance between blade and comb with a quick rotation of the handle. This way you can tune the thoroughness of the shave to your personal preference. For example, you can work long hair with a large blade gap, while the daily facial shave can be done with a gentle blade setting.
First, you should wash your face with warm water. This opens the pores and makes shaving easier. Start by generously coating your skin with shaving lather. Give the lather 5 minutes to soften the beard hair. Then, you set your safety razor at an angle of 30 - 45° and guide it over your face without pressure. To free the razor head from cut hair, simply hold it under the tap every few strokes.
The care of a safety razor is very easy. After use, simply wash out the razor thoroughly and remove lather residue and cut hair. A nail brush and a hair shampoo or dish soap help with stubborn dirt. Lastly, dry it with a towel and it’s ready to go for your next shave. When changing razor blades, check all of the parts for a tight fit. You can find more information here.
