Feather SS SE Blades

Item Description

I recently ordered and received these blades form Razor Blades and More. They were the only vendor I found that carried them, other than Feather. I bought them to try in my Valet razor in hopes that they would fit. Much to my happiness they did.

The price I gave as a 7 because they were well over a dollar per blade, I paid $8-9 for a pack of 5. But the price can drop dramatically, to just over 50 cents per blade if one can get them from Japan.

The quality is superb in my books. Now I am no connoisseur of razor blades, but these make my GEM PTFE seem chaply made. The one thing I have seen with any Japanese product, is that it may be similar to another country's item, but made much better. The blade is thick, sturdy, attracive, yet fierce looking.

The sharpness is something (for me) I have never experienced before. The first shave seemed rough but it was because the blade was so sharp (similar to water so hot it feels cold). The second shave I couldn't feel anything, it was so smooth! Like I said above, they make my GEM blades seem poor and cheap.

Longevity I gave a 9 because I got 4 shaves form the blade. As my form improves I may push it to 5, but usually blades only last 3 shaves for me (both SE and DE). That is why it is rated high for me.

Smoothness is an 8 because the first 3 shaves were more than fine, but the fourth shave was rather rough.

Packaging is given a 9. The packaging is as shown: the cardboard box with individually wrapped blades. The blade packages are held together with drops of wax (which can be removed by running the blade under hot water for a few seconds). not the best, but more appealing than the GEM blades that have the cardoard wrapping around the edge.

All in all I really like these blades. I am now able to have my Valet razor in my rotation, which makes them even better. They are amazingly sharp, but like the DE blades, treat them like any other razor blade and you'll be fine. They are nothing to fear!

Also a side note, I have sensitive skin and these blades did not irritate my face at all. I know some have issues with blade irritation, but these were fine. I recommend all to get a pack of these to try out. I know I will be only ordering them by the case now!

Good job Feather!:thumbup:

Pros: Sharp
Cons: Perhaps a bit too sharp
I know some people love these razors, but no matter what I did, I could not get a good shave out of it. I had a ton of weepers after shaving with this blade. I don't think I have sensitive skin, but this blade tore me up.
