    You hear that term used often in conjunction with the name Feather Feathers aren't really "rough" per se, but many shavers don't find the extreme sharpness to be comfortable while shaving. Others (myself included) find them to be very nice blades. YMMV.

    Typically when the term "cork the blade" is used, the edge itself is run across the top of the cork. In the case of a Feather blade, known as among the sharpest blades made, this WILL remove some of the sharpness and make the shave more comfortable for those that find them too harsh.

    I also like Feather blades. I think they make shaving with a DE the best and fastest shave available. When I don't have time for a straight I pull out the DE. Feather blades require absolutely no pressure to give a great shave.

    I keep mine in a shot glass full of vodka and it lasts for many many shaves before both sides go dull. Cheapest shave you can buy. Any well kept DE not just Feather.
