A Chinese razor delivering some serious shaving for all most nothing
Once upon a time merkur made the glorious futur.
The Chinese liked it very much and since then you can get a mingshi 2000s or a Qshave adjustable. They are sometimes referred to as futul.
They are a knock of the real thing and are known for quality issues. But if you get a good one it shaves very wel and a bit milder as the real thing.
I still love and use mine but it is butcher and blade picky.
This razor is sold under many different names and rebranded.
The Chinese kept the bottom plate and made a new razor now with a sleeker handle and a magnetic top cap. Still for bargain basement prices.
It looks very nice
It feels very nice
That top cap works great for me.
Adjustable though mine stays at 3
For me as a futul user it shaves intuitive but it shaves a bit easier more forgiving smoother.
One big difference I have thrown many blades at it and I could pretty much shave with all of them without a hiccup. To the point where I got sloppy with a bic on the second shave and got nicked. So yes it can still bite like a futul!
That blade chatter or noise is still there and I would use a Gillette stroke atg to mitigate that. For me no issue but some shavers hate it.
It is most likely zamak so you can break it too.
It sure as hell will have Chinese quality issues. I have 2 and both handles are not true rounded and have a flat spot.
Though I started with a futul (masochistic ?) I would not recommend it to other either and the same applies to the snmirn open it up and it is agressive.
But bottom line this shaves tremendously for 10 euro!
