There's a very cool Merkur Futur razor clone available on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ISCLWAO/re ... NxbJ07GJV7

It's sold by a third party on Amazon called Youtube Reviews.

Peter Charkalis did a shave video with it.

Hi Gents, I took a chance in December and ordered a Futur clone on EBay from Shanghai in China which arrived via free China post this morning.
I am pleasantly impressed by the quality, weight and appearance of the razor which is a "Ming Shi" brand. Model 2000S.
I have not seen the Merkur Futur so can't make an informed comparison but I am very happy with my "under R100" purchase. Will give it a test drive tomorrow for shave quality...........here's hoping for a good one. :o/

Very positive reviews on these "clones" the patent expired so it's open season. The only 'difference' is the handle on the authentic is a bit fatter, which changes the weighting slightly. Do take care slotting in a blade, those heads are slippery. Good buy, I know you're going to like it! :thumbup:

I like the Futur on 3.5 iirc and it does a good job smoothing out a stubbly visage. Tbh, I forgot I had one - I've converted to a feather dx zealot :o:::

I bought a Ming Shi 2000S in November 2017 and am very happy with mine. This is my go to razor now and shave with it every second day. (#3 on first pass and #4.5 on second pass)
