Feather blades, AC vs DE

    It's generally accepted that Feather DE blades have a reputation for sharpness, does this extend to the AC blades also?

    How do the two compare in terms of their sharpness?
     
  1. AC blades are pretty sharp.
     
  2. Feather AC blades are certainly sharp; probably sharper feeling when new than the DE variety, but that might be because of their greater stiffness and rigidity. This certainly means they retain their edge better. To me, however, the Schick P30 blades feel even sharper, while also being smoother.
    There probably is some more objective way of testing sharpness, but I'm not sure what it is.
