    Default Feather dilemma!!?

    Dear friends

    im a proud owner of feather ac dx and feather as-d2.

    Would like to use on daily rotation buy want to take your opinions.

    1- changibg each day the razor will affect the technique? Shoud i use always same razor? Since ac dx is require a good technique

    2- one ac dx blade will last for 11 shaves. in this case i will change it monthly. i dry it after shave and keep away from water and air. Does it harmful for skin(bacteria etc.)

    Thank you

    Somewhat unusual combination, very aggressive Feather and very forgiving Feather.
    Clearly not "two birds of a Feather" these two.

    Once you are proficient with both techniques, there is nothing wrong with alternating, as long as you keep the differences in aggressiveness in mind.
    I now shave mainly with straights, with a Feather DX when traveling (about three times a month), and once in a while with a DE razor.

    If find new Feather AC blades quite harsh on the first shave, but they become better after the first shaves, so if you put in a new blade in the DX after weeks of Feather AS-D2 shaving you will need to pay attention.

    Unless you have shaved with both for a long time already, I would not shave too long with only one type exclusively, as your technique may get a bit rusty.

    You may also find that your preferred cream/soap for one razor is not necessarily the preferred cream/soap for the other - even though for me my favorites are still my favorites soaps, no matter what the razor.
