    with pro blade.
    This thing is Uber Sharp, and unforgiving, and lives up to the feather reputation! I took extra care after reading how unforgiving these can be still ended up with a few tiny weepers, which I did not feel. It provided very very close shave, BBS easily!
    I am impressed!!!
    I was curious about feather super pro blades with an extra .2 mm exposure. I am curious no more. the feather pro blades are more than enough!
    I have read where blade gets more comfortable with use. I’m hoping this true nonetheless next shave i’ll Be even more cautious.
    it will be fun learning this new razor

    Pre:
    Noxema wash, conk pre shave oil

    Shave :
    Tabac
    Feather SS
    Feather pro blade

    Post:
    Alum stick
    Special reserve
    Nivea Balm


    I first looked at these about this time last year.... they were all about. $100, and passed. Now I’m finding them new for about $60. Did prices come down or was my google-fu off?

    I have one inbound and it will be my first non-DE or SE. I have a bevy of AC blades of all types so I am looking forward to trying them out but might just go with a Schick ProLine AC blade at first.

    I also like to use the Feather SS but the folding version. I never tried a Kamisori. Do you prefer them over the folding razors?

    Well I just received mine in today and am still to give it a go. I have never tried either and this one looked appealing to me.
