DE shaving technique can all be boiled down to giving the blade it's due respect. The Feather is a teacher of proper technique and the Feather demands the utmost respect.
When you use proper technique, you respect and please the blade and you are rewarded with smooth, flawless skin. If you apply any pressure at all to your face when shaving, you disrespect and insult the blade by implying that it needs your help to do it's job. You'll then be punished accordingly and you'll not easily forget your mistake.
If you wish to quickly become a shaving master, let the Feather be your teacher.
The Feather "wins" because of its sharpness. In other words, it is SHARP! If you have gotten your DE technique and face prep down, then this blade will not let you down. The flip side of that is ... if you are brand new to DE shaving or have not yet been able to achieve a smooth, nick-free and super-close shave, then beware. You may not yet be ready for the Mighty Feather. :) (Keep the styptic pencil handy!)
Some people say this blade, while extremely sharp, is not as smooth as some others and doesn't provide as many good shaves as it might. So far I have found this to not be true for me. I can routinely get 3 great shaves out of a Feather, and the 4th shave is at least very good, if not great.
As with all blades, your choice of razor makes a difference. In my Merkur 38C razor, this blade is the perfect choice. The Feather Portable is a lot more aggressive than the 38C, so my first shave with a Feather/Feather combination was not nearly as good or comfortable. It wasn't horrible, and I think I can now do better since I've had more experience with the Portable. But that said, if you use the Feather blade in a more aggressive or adjustable razor, take care with your technique and/or setting.
Update 2/13/08: As my prep has improved, I have discovered that the Feather is even better than my initial comments indicate.
First, as to longevity: Just for kicks I decided to see how many shaves I could get out of a single Feather blade. With meticulous face prep, I actually got TEN shaves out of one blade!Read more ›
For all of the reviews related to bleeding and nicks I would suggest going back to a different blade until your technique improves. These are great!
