Yes, the blades are extremely sharp; I believe the idea behind razor blades is that they're supposed to be sharp, so that's a plus. I have a very heavy beard, and the whiskers don't go easy in the morning. My Derby Extras would cut through, but only with some bulldozing action on my part. Not so with the Feathers - they slice through those little hairs like a hot knife through butter.
After shaving (which I do in the shower), it's hard to believe a beard could possibly grow on that baby butt-smooth face of mine. As far as people slicing themselves, I think these blades would be difficult to start with if you're new to the world of double-edge shaving. One small cross-cut, and you could definitely do some damage. But, so far, I have yet to draw a single drop - knock on wood.
So -- these blades deserve your respect, because they're sharp. They also deserve your admiration for the same reason.
If you're ready for a sharper blade, these babies are what you want.
I'd read how delightful the Feather blades were and when the Derbys ran out, I spent the extra $$ and bought a 100-pack of the Feathers. Holy @*!!!! Who knew what I was missing? These things are extraordinary! Smooth as silk, and despite what I've read from others that they are likely to cut your face to shreds if not careful, I've not had that experience. I set my Merkur to level 1 and shave away with abandon. Thus far I've yet to cut my face with the Feathers...which was emphatically not the case with the Merkur blades! Those things are harsh as heck. If you are still shaving with them, sell at a garage sale immediately and spend the extra on the Feathers.
I'm 45, blonde hair, so probably not the heaviest beard in the world, but I will attest to the fact that I've never in my adult life experienced a better shave than I am now.
So I learned to shave with the derby and then tried a feather and cut myself something awful. I then went onto the astra superior platinum, and shark super chrome (both very good blades). These blades are sharper than the derby and can be used with less effort. Anyway, I just came back to the feather, and used the original advice. No pressure. It all started working. A smooth shave that doesn't pull on my thickest hairs and little to no irritation.
I think those that preach about not using the feather until your technique is sound don't really know what they are talking about. I understand the advice now, but the reality is you need to be more respectful of the sharper blades but they also can provide a much better shave for those with coarse hair and less irritation. I have swirling hair under on my neck, and the less sharp the blade the more irritation because it doesn't cut it as easily. The feather is the only blade I've been able to get a close shave with other than the cartridge razors.
Most of the razors are variations on the same theme. The difference between the astra and the shark isn't that profound, they are both sharp, smooth blades. However they aren't that different. The feather however is different. And the it is a good difference for me. If I had thinner, less coarse hair I would prefer the astra, or the shark most likely. As well if the hair on my neck didn't swirl. But for my sensitive skin, this cuts the most hair and provides less irritation because of it.
These blades are super sharp and glide ever so smoothly over my face when shaving. Let me say that for all the folks warning of slicing your head off with these I have to stress while they are incredibly sharp if you are having issues cutting yourself you really need to asses your beard prep and shaving technique. Beard prep and technique are always essential components of a perfect shave. I always shave after a shower but in those rare instances I'll use a hot towel to soften up my whiskers before i lather up with shaving cream. I have a preference for Taylor of Old Bond Street creams. They produce such a rich lather with minimal effort. I also usually add a few drops of glycerin for a little extra glide on the blade. I havent cut myself once with these and have had consistent baby butt smooth 3 pass shaves with zero irritation. Infact since shaving with the Feathers i have had my closest smoothest shaves to date second only to when I use a straight razor. I follow up my shaves with a cold rinse, alum block, cold rinse, then Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera, then a Taylors of Old Bond Street aftershave and Im good to go.Read more ›
