I put a fresh Yellow in my Futur today set on 3 and I got some nicks, I had to dial it down a bit, but the blade is smooth and sharp just like in my Aristocrat. If the iridiums were easier to get or cheeper I would try them.

I went ahead and bought a gold Futur, it looks like it will be a good choice for me, if not I will just sell it and get the longer handle progress.

I have been wet shaving for a while now and gotten a pretty good routine down. I own only one razor, a 50's Aristocrat and use typically only one soap, D.R. Harris Marlborough. I have tried alot of soaps and creams and I have found that my Aristocrat loaded with yellow Gillettes works best for me. H...
