    so when you do load up a feather or other top of line blade.. you end up destroying your face..
    I don't know because when you shave with a DE you really don't have the feedack you get from a straight so you don't know how things are going unless you feel your skin as you shave. I shave the same no matter the blade and later on I access the job. But either way I don't change the pressure from one blade to another.

    very good point.. i hadn't taken that into consideration.. i am a feather artist club user.. so the typical "feedback" you hear about is not something i am familiar with ... perhaps i need to try out a traditional straight at some point.
