I have a Merkur Futur. I have to be a bit careful and attentive with it. Sometimes get weepers and nicks if I dont pay attention

Its matte, so its not as slippery as chrome, but wish it had some texture.

I need a razor I can use in the shower. Something that I will not have to be so careful with and can be faster with.

I always shave in the shower. 

All my DE and SE razors are my shower razors.

Do you have a mirror in there?

Now that is something that I am interested in. An actual fog free, decent size, not outrageously expensive or requiring plumbing work, shower mirror. 

I have a mirror. It's in my shower. It's my nemesis some days. It's too small, foggy or covered in a million little beads of water all the time

I was in your position several months ago and then bought this:  Shower mirror.  
  • LED Fogless Lighted Shower Mirror works via a reservoir that fills with hot water and keeps the mirror fogless
It works every time without needing any special wipes or sprays for the mirror.  The size is perfect and it's super easy to use.  Two big thumbs up!

If you like open combs check out Parker 24 C or 26C.  Efficient, smooth and forgiving, with good gripping handles.

Same here. Only the One Blade was a hazard in the shower.

My daughter has used a 50s superspeed with no issues. Cheap and grippy. Also consider the Merkur 45C bakelite razor.

My wife claimed my SuperSpeed garage sale find ($3.50) and keeps it in the shower.  We have fights when I replace the rusty blade so she doesn't get tetanus and don't tell her because she doesn't like sharp blades.  Then I use her toothbrush to scrub the rust off the razor and give her something to be mad about.

A Gillette Slim will do the job. Keep the blade in, and even shave in the shower. It's pretty sturdy, but I think I'd prefer something like the 6S for its smoothness.

A Bakelite razor like the Fine slant, probably. However, that razor is a tad aggressive. I think there maybe others that are milder but I haven't tried any other Bakelite yet.

I use all my razors in the shower but I don't keep them there.

But  a plastic or a plated razor would do fine.

But don't worry just use the one you want, it's ment to be used.
