Type: Safety Razor
The Feather AS-D2 is the best double edge razor (Or any type razor) I have ever used. I’m 64 and shave 5 days a week...2 passes each time. This razor with the feather blade using quality pre shave...shave soap...and after-shave stand at the pinnacle of shaving. I’m In Pittsburgh and have a deep appreciation of metals...this stainless steel razor is quality craftsmanship with superb balance and weight. The aggressiveness is spot on for daily shavers...and the cap and head conceal the blade entirely (corners) to prevent nicks from various angles. Bottom line: I wanted a one and done razor. Mission accomplished. If I would lose this razor I would order another one the next day. Do yourself a favor and get this razor (And Simpson Chubby) and never look back..you will have the best hardware available.
Dave, the proprietor, recommended this razor and I am in love. I haven't changed the blades - same Feather blades but the heft and form of this razor gives me the smoothest shave of my life. Need to be a little more careful wielding it vs my other razor but it's great!
Great razor very happy with the shave it provides and the quality if the razor.
I've been using a Feather safety razor with Feather blades. Once I got the knack of whipping up the soap and using the razor, I now have the smoothest cheeks and neck and have received compliments from my wife. The alum block and Seville Eau de Toilette make a very good finish to the job. I highly recommend reading the Guide to Wet Shaving for some essential tips, and it has reduced the frequency of cuts. I look forward to experimenting with some of the other products from this store. I must admit that I don't have the nerve to try a straight razor so I do not expect to be writing a review about that.
This is a beautiful piece of equipment. I have enjoyed using the Merkur razor for a few months now and have just finished shaving with the Feather. I feel like I have more precise control with this razor, because of its knurled handle and thinner head. I'll continue to travel with the Merkur, but the Feather will be my new daily shaver.
