    No on the feather... personna blue is a better choice. Maybe even the derby.

    We don't have your face . Blades are personal. Try a few.

    Nice. I really like that handle. Any blade that works for YOUR face is a good blade to try in it. Use a light touch lol.

    Go with the Astras from your list. The Feathers work well, the margin for error is thin, but I’ve done it with great results. Most of the time I like Gillette Nacets w/ an R41.

    If you normally use feather blades, just use feather blades. You know and like them. Just use a light touch.
