Definitely new to this, but have done a lot of research on both of these razors already. I've been DE shaving for a bit, but the shave from safety razors is just too mild and I've found the straight razor shave I get from my barber to be much closer and I'm ready to dive in, nicks and cuts be damned. I'm active duty military, full time student and I freelance design on the side so a disposable straight is definitely the choice for me as my time is just too scarce to hone and strop and so on. I've decided on these two razors. In your honest opinions how superior is the Feather to the Parker? I realize most believe the Parker is a great deal for the money and good to learn on, but if the difference is really only about 80-90 bucks then is it worth just jumping straight to the Feather? I've read about the Kai Captains as well, but can't seem to find a place to buy so a tip there would also be great. Thanks!
