Greetings I have not used a feather blade for at least five years I found them just too sharp for me and they left my face feeling at best a bit tender and at worst sore. Having said that I still have one packet and I do intend to try them again, five years is a very long time and perhaps my views have changed. What makes me unsure was that three years ago I borrowed a Cobra Classic and shaved with it for a week, the razor was very good indeed but I found the artist club blades just too sharp for me, I was given three different types to try but they were all IMHO 'silly sharp'. Many thanks anyway for your very kind offer. Regards Dick.
