Any recs for a good price on a Merkur Futur razor that I can buy online? I have had it on my wishlist for awhile and figure I should take advantage of the strong yen.

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this thread.

try the B/S/T board at Badgerandblade. Usually someone's looking to get rid of something over there, and I've not had a bad transaction from the gents there.

You can also check with Lee (www.leesrazors.com) in NY. Great selection of authentic Merkur shaving products.

He is a wonderful gentleman & vendor. Ships worldwide, to the best of my knowledge.

Hope that helps.

I bought my Merkur 38C through Amazon. If I remember they also had other models available.

i got mine here, http://www.knifecenter.com/knifecenter/conk/merkur.html
but only because I was ordering some kitchen knives at the same time. I'd go with classicshaving or lee's. Lee's I know for sure, is owned by a badger and blade member, if you like to support smaller businesses.

You're lucky that you'll probably be able to get Feather razors so easily. I have to mail order mine!

I bought a gold plaited Merkur slant bar from Lee's Razors.

An update to mention that I ended up ordering from http://www.gentlemans-shop.com in the UK and recommend them highly.

All of the US-based recommendations above either charged too much for overseas shipping or simply did not offer overseas shipping.

I ended up getting the 38C and I also picked up a Dalvey flask I had been wanting. With the advantageous exchange rate it worked out to be a good deal.

I have purchased two Merkurs from eBay. I would also try the B/S/T board at Badgerandblade.
