    I, too, agree that Feathers are good blades. Out of all of the blades I have sampled since shaving with a DE, I think they are the best (by far).

    Hello, Noggs:

    Thanks for your note. I love my straights, yes, of course, but the DE provides a nice intermittent variation.

    Regards,
    Obie

    I still use a de if in a rush and because i have soo many of them, so at least once a week i will use a de, what i find is the quickness of the shave which before i took up a straight i thought took ages.

    noogs,

    You are quite right; using a DE now and again is a most pleasant change.

    I use my English Gillette 88, 'E' Model Schick and Muhle-Pinsel R109 probably once a month each.

    If anything, I have found that my straight shaving has improved my DE shaving quite a bit; very light pressure and correct angles are directly transferrable from the straight to the DE shave.

    Have fun !

    Best regards

    Russ

    I have been into wet-shaving for over a year now and use a DE most of the time I have a nice collection of straight razors; and enjoy using them sometimes; but a DE is my go-to razor For me; straight razor shaving is a treat for occasions when I have enough time to use them I don't have the steadiest hands; and the coffee I drink in the morning exacerbates that quirk I think the important point is that; in wet-shaving there is something for almost everyone regardless of out individual limitations!
