Hi guys, as some of you may remember Ive been waiting on a Feather DX to arrive from Japan for some time now. Initially it was a razor I thought was way over priced & I couldnt see how a tiny bit extra blade exposure/different blade angle could justify the significant price increase but I figured Id give it a go & sell it if it wasnt that much different from my 2 Feather SS shavettes. This is one of the rare occasions where Im happy to admit I was wrong. Ive read on other posts that the scales were thicker & of a higher quality than the SS..Im still on the fence about that theory but without doubt the blade holder is much heavier & higher quality than the SS. Another thing I noticed straight away was how silky smooth it was to open & close compaired to my other 2 SS versions. The blade holder is alot more polished to & because of this the lather just slides straight off as soon as its run under the tap..far easier than it does on the SS. Now as far as the shave..absolutely fantastic. By far the closest shave Ive had from a shavette & while I was very cautious about the more aggressive blade angle at first those worries were soon gone & in all honesty its as good or easier to use than the SS. I cant quite describe in words what makes it so much better to shave with than the other Feather shavettes but Im sure other people that have both know what I mean. In short do I think its worth the money & would I buy it again..absolutely.
