Type: Safety Razor
Up until recently I've used Mach3 disposable razor blades. I have long used oil, a brush and quality shaving creams. But progression to a proper razor is recent. The Feather AS-D2 delivers in so many ways. From the moment I received the package, I have been impressed. Feather delivers in packaging that is top notch. It was like getting a new watch or a new computer. I loved opening it. The weight and feel of the Feather is very satisfying. To be completely honest, it took me a few shaves to get used to using a safety razor. I had a few nicks here and there, and sometimes went too light. But after a few shaves, I feel very comfortable using it. The Feather looks great, feels great, it's easy to maintain and generally nice to have on my shelf. I recommend it to anybody. I should also note that buying through Grownman Shave was a positive experience all around. I felt as though they provided custom advice, they delivered very quickly and the whole process was made easy for me. Overall, Grownman Shave made this a fun experience!
Opening the box was a real treat with minimal packaging that rivals any Apple product. Taking it out, you immediately feel the perfection of this handle with the precisely machined grip. Lifting it out of the box you learn how solid it really is by the balanced weight that feels natural. These characteristics contribute to a MUCH easier shave. There's enough weight to let the blade gently slide down your face and with control thanks to the grip to put you at ease even if it's your first time. Finally, the screw on razor holder deserves particular mention. Other makers use clasp-like contraptions that give an uneasy feeling when closing. There's no uneasiness with this screw-on top. After a few rotations it's down and secure. Highly recommended. Feather produced a razor of heirloom quality.
The Feather All Stainless Razor is as much of a fine art piece as it is a functional part of your daily routine. Having just received this beautiful razor, I was immediately impressed with the packaging and presentation. Using this razor is pure pleasure, especially compared to the usual plastic, disposable kit to which I have become accustomed. As a practicing Heart Surgeon for over 25 years, I recognize and appreciate precise cutting instruments. The Feather All Stainless Razor and the Hi-stainless blades would be right at home in my operating room. Thank you for an outstanding product and service. JA
