[-X I know it's just a question of personal preference, but I would be quick to cancel out your vote. I find the O...

finally, mastered the futur

i've always liked the looks and design of the merkur futur but have never been able to get a nice shave. one without irritation or weepers. i think i have finally figured it out. i've had 4 shaves with my new gold futur without irritation or blood! i start with a wtg pass on 3. then cross grain on 2...
