    I used a Futur exclusively for almost 7 years. It is a wonderful razor.

    :signs011: Very true...especially for those of us coming from carts, where pressure is necessary.

    I trained my skin by shaving daily for about a week. Eventually, the irritation wore off because the skin became used to the daily treatment with a blade. Also. PREP! Wash your face with a good facial soap such as the msugo real glycerin soap. Step two: Apply a good preshave cream such as the Proraso green or red. Then apply the shaving cream on top of the preshave cream, wait for two or three minutes, then shave. First with the grain, then across the grain and eventually against the grain. I have mastered the shave to such a degree that I hardly ever have any razor burn or weepers. I use the Futur at 6 and the R41 loaded with a Feather and get irritation-free shaves. With a bit of practice (incl. shaving daily for at least a week), you're gonna get the hang of it, too. It's not rocket science.
