I hesitated buying this razor because of Feather's reputation as a risky shave and the price. NESC had it on sale, so I gave it a go. Well, it is now my new number one razor!! Very efficient, but very smooth and safe!! Even with a Feather blade in it!! Wow!! Don't hesitate like I did. Try this razor!!
You know the old saying, "you get what you pay for." The Feather AS-D2 is not inexpensive, but it is a precision, shaving instrument. Feather blades fit perfectly, and despite their sharpness, it feels as though it is impossible to get nicked. The shave is smooth and easy. I shave everyday with no irritation. If you're on the fence, go for it. This razor is an excellent investment.
Very nice smooth razor, solid and well made, I only wish the stands were available separately for less money.
