I finally shaved with the featherweight today and I have to say this may be my favorite razor so far. I had a clean completely irritation free shave. When I used the alum I have a couple small spots that stung but I didn't even know there were any spots that would have. I have a completely smooth face for now. The thing that amazed me most was going ATG on the neck. With DE razors and straights I always feel it tugging jumping and just hurts shaving ATG on my neck. With this two pass and done no jumping pulling tugging or any unwanted experience. Did WTG then ATG and was smooth. Even with the first use of the blade. I used one of the gem persona coated blades. I love this razor. Now I want more SE razors.
