I've used this razor twice now, and I sorta doubt my opinion's gonna change much over the next couple shaves. By now I can tell pretty quickly how a razor will perform.
First, let me say my perfect aggressive level is on the Gillette scale #4. That would be on the high side of the milder shaving settings. A Tech is about the closest fixed head type(as a reference point).
I found some very good things with the Feather that surprised me. My first shave was using an Iridium, and the second was using a Feather blade. The Iridium was ok, but the Feather blade was a much better fit for me. Normally, I can only use a Feather in my fatboy, but this razor is suited for a very sharp blade.
Yeah, that means this DE is VERY mild. Feels like maybe a #2 setting....maybe a litle higher. The Iridium(sharp as they are) didn't cut as close as they usually do, and the switch to the Feather blade did the trick. Talk about a nice easy shave........very pleasant.
Heh, using a long handle after all these years was interesting. Wasn't a problem, but it did feel a little weird. The razor's mostly plastic, with a metal head. Balance is fine and the head design makes for finding the correct angle easily.
The build seems good........TTO works smoothly and the head seems free of flaws. All in all, it looks to be a well constructed item.
I was gifted this razor(thanks Fozzy-Beard), and wouldn't have thought to ever try one myself. It really was a pleasant surprise, and I could recommend it in some situations. Someone with big hands might find this one to their liking, or someone who likes a mild razor/sharp blade combo(such as myself). This would also be a very good razor to start a DE journey.
I believe the razors sell for $15-20 or so. Comes with a nice plastic box and two Feather blades. It's not for everyone, but certainly is worth a look for some.
Oh.....for reference to the handle length, the Feather's next to a Gillette super adjustable in that pic.
