After many years of paying through the nose for cartridge blades of varying brands (lastly the king of shave Azor type) I decided to go back to basics and last year bought a cheap Boots double-edged razor.
It's cheap. Of the three parts it has, only two are made of metal and those have a cheap feel to them, but it does work and gives a nice enough shave. It's a bit harsh on my throat/neck area though and I was wondering if this could be fixed with an upgrade of the razor to something a little more professional and precision. Something very much like a Merkur Futur for example.
It looks nice, but if I only cared about looks for a razor, I'd have bought some ivory/mother of pearl inlaid damascus steel cut-throat by now and probably caused myself an injury. So, are there any Futur users on here and how much better than a cheap DE razor will it be?
