Just finished my 3rd shave with my new Satin Hawk loaded with a Feather Pro and I'll have to say this razor is a beast. I have fairly thick, super coarse stubble and today this thing performed. The first pass for the most part with a super light touch is not all that impressive. It's when you do the second pass across the grain with the stubble knocked down that this razor shines. All I had left was a little touch up. No irritation or hot spots on my face. DFS!......DFS! I think the key to this razor may be to prep your face and soap like you would for straight razor shaving, a little thinner, and slicker. Not sure how long I can push the blade but I'm hoping for at least 2 more shaves from it. I think I may have to put it above my RR 37 Slant and I love my 37. It's super light and that took some adjustment but by this third shave it didn't matter, I just picked it up and went to work. I'm gonna say this razor is a keeper! Thanks to blashe for telling me about this razor!
