Even though I am about to throw myself in to the deep end of SE's (okay, a shallow paddle as a starter) I still remain searching the DE market for those which are away from the crowd.

The Feather still remains on my curious list but not sure if it is just another nice mild razor which does a job or is it more than that? Does it give a sublime shave (prep etc all being in good order) and does it give wow! factor?

A curious mind at work

i love mine (asd2) top quality razor - i like mild and this one leaves my face smooth with no irritation. is it worth £200? - not really, is any razor really worth that much? a 10 quid tech will give you a smooth shave but it is satisfying to use. i bought mine as a gift to myself after having bought a lot of vintagerazors but i certainly wouldn't be spending that much again!

The only razor the Feathers felt at home in was the ASD2 otherwise they just feel over sharp and rough but that's just my opinion I know there are many who see it as an Uber blade YMMV ect :) P.

I have finally started using my feather razor, and how much do I wish I had ratched out of the packing box earlier, I got it after using an ikon which held blade lovely (yet to have a blade chatter) and the usual curiosity, glad I scratched it, when I am home I use nothing else, I only use my other razors when travelling for work etc.
Strangely I do not like the feather blades in it, still rough compared to other blades, so far GSB, Astra SP, Pol Silvers are all sublime in it, even the wife faceturbates me after a shave with the feather.

Isn't life strange? I've just seen this thread today, and yesterday I ordered a Feather AS D2 as I was curious as well. I've been thinking about getting a Feather for a long time, and I've read lots of good things about them. And I wanted to have a stainless steel razor at last instead of chrome-plated Zamak razors, which, after the shortest time, look a bit grubby somehow.
Or like one of the Parkers I bought where the chrome-plating started to flake off.
To me the feather looks so sexy and functional, like a well-made tool, which I suppose it is really. It'll be arriving next week, can't wait!
