    Default Feather blades

    I'm excited to discover my blade of choice after sampling a good handful of different ones. I had been suffering from massive skin irritation and nicks until I gave Feather blades a try.

    I made sure to use an even lighter touch than I did with the other blades as I have heard the feather horror stories. It was awesome to hear the blade slicing through my whiskers without any pulling. To my surprise after I was finished, my skin wasn't red or bleeding anywhere. Also, this was the closest shave I've achieved yet.

    So in short, or not, I will be buying a bunch of feather blades when I near the end of my sampler pack.

    Feathers are my go-to blade too. They just work for me.

    My preference is to use a medium-aggressive razor with the Feather blades. The shaves are always close and comfortable.

    Blade choice varies with the person and the razor, of course. I'm glad you found what works for yourself.

    My go to blade has always been the Feather. I've found the Gillette 7 o clocks seem to work better in all my razors. So I have a new go to blade.

    They last a long time as well. All I do is rinse them off after each shave. You use them a really long time before they can be qualified as 'dull'.

    Gentlemen:
    The Feather is a superb blade. I use it, along with the Super Iridium, for my Feather razor. The Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellows are reserved for the Edwin Jagger, Muhle, Merkur and Gillette razors. The Personna Red Pack goes into the Weber. Indeed, the Feather gives a superb shave. I, however, feel the blade dies after the third shave. So it's three shaves and out with the Feather.

    I'm able to get 10-12 shaves with a feather in my Barbasol DE. I love them!

    Feather blades have been my go to blade for DE shaving. They are super sharp and lead to a great shave.

    Feather in a Merkur Slant are fab, with a light touch, for me. And I have enjoyed the Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellows as well in a Merkur HD.

    Same here. Feather blades for the win. I also liked the Wilkinson Sword blades, just a bit less sharp though.
