Disliked Feathers until I tried them in my Nodachi!
My standards have shifted somewhat over the years, so I'm looking for different things from blades and razors than I used to. Would I shave with a Feather again? Sure would. Would I buy them? I've discovered other blades I like just as much that are cheaper, so no, probably not.
I keep going back and forth with this blade, love and hate. One shave will be great, next is a blood bath. I use mild razors, yet this blade only seems to work in certain razors. Anyone else have this same opinion?
It's all about the combo.
Feather + Muhle R41 = Food Processor.
Feather + Parker OC = Smooth as Glass BBS.
Silver Star blades only cost $8/100, so quite a bargain!These are the only DE blades I've used for years. I recently started shaving with different DE razors so I bought a tryablade pack to test new blades out. So far, Silver Star blades are challenging the Feathers, but I still have many more to try.
