    Thats the point Richard,You wanna use a straight?? you start with the best of the best honed by the best to perfection.
    Than you will know what perfect is.
    The same holds true for DE blades IMO

    Keep in mind that blades do not perform the same in every razor, so a blade that performs poorly in one razor may perform great in another (and vice versa). Welcome to the wonderful world of DE's, it's a slippery slope from here

    My experiences so far in order of trying them:

    1) Dorco - didn't tug on hair but the final shave wasnt too close after 3 passes
    2) Treet - felt like it was tugging at my hair, not a close shave at all.
    3) Feather - super sharp as expected! However, I started to feel some irritation during the 2nd pass so I didn't do a 3rd pass and as a result, didn't get a close shave.

    I really haven't gotten a close shave yet. Any advice? Difference razor angle?

    The Feather ripped me up the first time I used it. As a result, I discarded it and didn't use it for almost half a year. In the meantime, my shaving technique improved dramatically and I finally can get that superlight touch. The Feather blades really require that gentleness, as they are very unforgiving. By now, my very smoothest shaves come from the Feathers. I just hope I will get my straight razors in the same league of sharpness anytime soon.

    From that group I have only used the feathers. IMO they aren't anything to be afraid of. When used properly they won't injure you. They are a good razor blade.

    I only use a DE when going out of town, feathers are my main blade because I have a ton of them
    But are other blades that are as good or better than Feathers in some aspects, such as Balzanos and KAIs.
