Feathers !

Discussion in 'Safety Razors' started by Cutthroat_trout, Feb 19, 2008.

  1. Just as I was about to give up on the feather, I put one in a 55 SuperSpeed and got a lovely close shave without nicks or slashes. What a difference a day makes. I thought it would work great in my 49 SS but I kept getting involuntary bleedings. The 49 has worked wonderfully in with every other blade but not the feather. This supports acquisition of more razors !!

    Sometimes it is simply a slight difference in blade itself. Sadly blades are never 100% the same from batch to batch. That is why you have to keep on testing.

    Plus certain blades like Feather require a little more care and some might argue experience to use to their full potential. So you never know!

    I have 3 types of Feathers and each and every one shaves differently. However, I noticed that a fresh blades performs much better than a 3-4 shaves old one.
