Proper prep and technique - prep nothing spectacular needed just a good mix of brush work and water for the soap in question - and technique nothing spectacular needed except "I know what I am doing" :)

Day 4 - Shave 3

  • De Vergulde Hand shaving soap
  • TOST LE 2018 brush
  • Schick Krona
  • Feather blade (1)
  • Alum block
  • Hagner Tobacco ASL

I wanted to try the Schick Krona with a Feather blade. It took me while to find what I now believe is my last Feather blade. I won't buy any more, but only for the reason that I mostly shave with SE razors and I have hundreds of DE blades left - mostly Voskhod and PolSilver. Once I'm down to less than 100 DE blades - some time in the mid to late 2020s - I would buy Feather blades again. Maybe I'll buy 10 for pass arounds.
Today's shave - no need to go into too much detail - was really quite good. The Schick Krona is a great razor for Feather blades. Two days worth of stubble were removed with the utmost efficiency, while the razor glided across my face smoothly and with ease.
At no time did I fear that the Krona/Feather combo would nick me and sure enough they didn't. It was a truly wonderful shave - full on BBS, no irritation.
I like this razor. Another shave with my last Feather blade and I might be able to let go.
TBC…

Must say I never attempted a Feather in the Krona, this blade was consistently rough for me in other razors.

I do not have any more as I passed it over to someone here, however I might order a tuck to see how these two play together.

The problem I have with Feathers is that they start out really good, then mid 2nd or 3rd shave they suddenly turn rough and dull. As I have far too many DE blades I don't care if I use a blade only once. I prefer PolSilvers or Voskhods but I like trying a Feather in a new razor. I'm still in two minds if I should buy a few more or not. They are not exactly value for money. I still have well over 200 DE blades and last year I used about 15, so maybe buying more is not a good idea. :rolleyes:
