The Merkur Futur has six different blade exposure adjustments. Light beard or heavy beard, sensitive skin or normal skin - the Futur can shave them all comfortably. The patented fine adjustment mechanism is unique to this razor. Double edge blade tension is set perfectly by the razor head when it is snapped onto the handle base. The snap-on, snap-off razor head also makes it easy to clean and change blades. Polished gold finish.
