    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

    Noxema wash, conk pre shave oil

    Shave :
    Feather SS
    Feather pro blade

    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.
