The AS-D2 is Feather's second generation of their all stainless steel double edge safety razor.  This three-piece razor is an ultra premium shaving tool, with exacting tolerances and exquisite satin finish. 

This is easily one of the most advanced traditional shaving tools on the market.  Feather has engineered it for great balance and accurate blade placement.  Their unique method of holding the blade ensures it sits centered.

The handle has a great knurled pattern for a firm grip and has a nice length for a comfortable grip. 

This razor is on the mild side, so a slightly greater angle of use is needed.  Paired with a sharp blade, like the Feather double edge blade results in a very nice shave.

Beautifully packaged in a burgundy gift box.   One pack of Feather double edge razor blades included.

Made in Japan.
Product Reviews
to mild a shave
<p>I feel my beard hair is average. I just can't get a close shave without irritation. I have to put to much pressure. And this only gives me a fairly good shave. My face feels unshaven in only a few hours. I have tried a half dozen different blades, to no avail. I personally would not buy this again. I like the three piece long handle razors of E.J. or Muhle. They give a super shave with any blades I have tried.</p>
Don't need to use a Feather blade
I enjoyed my Merkur 34C for about a year now but being military and having to shave every day sometimes even the Merkur could be a little too aggressive and I have good one day beard growth. I sprung for the Feather because I wanted to try one of the pricey razors and it doesn't disappoint. The weight and length are great but I appreciate the curve of the top head as it has a lower profile and more ergonomic to the jaw line. I've used Feather blades in the Merkur and now the Feather razor yet the blade is simply uncomfortable. After a week of the Feather blade I switched back to my faithful Astra blades and I love this razor now. I can even apply a tad bit of pressure in some of the hard to reach places. I would put its aggressiveness a tad less than the Merkur 34C but to me that’s a good since using even a mild razor every single day can sometimes be a pain if you don’t have time to prep properly but with the Feather I do 2 pass shaves during the week and after the weekend I hit it with a 3 pass and I'm good. I'm sure there are plenty of razors out there that provide similar comfort but this works well for my face and style of shaving. I would recommend this razor due to the quality and structure but the price is something you would have to consider obviously. If you are an shave every day guy like me and have mild to medium beard growth I would do it but if not stay with a Merkur 34C or similar and try a sharper blade.
Pinnacle of Razors
The materials and workmanship of this razor are among the best on the market. It's a solid razor with a great feel. The ends of the blade are enclosed, which is nice. As for the shave, it's very "mild" but effective. This is a great daily shaver because of that, and doesn't require concentration. Even with bad technique, it takes work to screw up with this one. If you're looking for aggressiveness and efficiency, it's perhaps not the best choice - but that's okay. Pricey, sure, but it's a lifetime razor - and one you should be very happy with.</p>
Feather has shown me the value in the DE shave
I'd used cartridges for ages (really nice and pricey ones). To be honest, they give an excellent shave. A friend of mine talked up the DE process as an inherently better shave experience. After reading some "Leisure Guy" material and going down the road quite a bit I could see the enjoyment factor but the actual shave (outcome and smoothness of the glide) was not noticeably better than using my cartridge system. I was using a vintage Gillette DE super speed (trying multiple blades, creams, pre-creams, etc.). This razor has absolutely blown me away. I've been using it with the supplied feather blades and it slips over my skin like there is no blade at all. It is a pleasure to use and I now see the true value in the DE process over cartridges. I will not down grade it for price because you already know what it costs. It's a splurge, but it's one that I recommend when the time comes that you can afford it without serious strain.
Truly Remarkable DE Razor
Simply a remarkable and unmatched product experience!!! I am fortunate to own several top-tier razors including straight blades and high-end DE razors and you won't find a better balance of performance and beauty! Buy this razor with confidence and don't be concerned with the price and performance ratio -- it's just a remarkable investment and you won't be sorry! If you don't have the money for this razor then save for it- it's that good! I own a Weber Classic; Ikon OSS 2013; Ikon DLC SLANT - all said and done this is the finest DE razor in overall balanced performance and quality, in my opinion.
I purchased this safety razor a month ago and was quite pleased with it but wasn't sure it was worth the price. I figured I was paying a lot due to the disparity between the Japanese Yen and the Dollar. After using it everyday for a month I went back to my old razor which cost me about twenty bucks. The difference was very noticeable. My old razor cut off the top of one of my moles and put a pretty big gash under my jaw. I went back to this Feather and no problem. Shaves really close and comfortable with no wounds. I recommend this if you can afford it. The price is why I give it four starts instead of five.
