The Perfect DE Safety Razor
Thank you WestCoastShaving.com for the quick service. I was planning to write a review of the Feather ASD2 safety razor after a month of shaving, but after a methodical Sunday morning shave, I experienced the best shave of my life. I have been a wet shaver for 50+ years and I currently own a Merkur HD, a Vision, Feather Popular and 2 Feather Straight razors (replaceable blades). I also own a Dovo and a Hart Steel Straight razors - maintaining a shave ready edge is impossible with these 2 straights. In my first shave with the ASD2, I shaved my face with 2 passes, I shaved my head completely and I trimmed my pencil thin mustache. My face and head are perfectly smooth. And my thin mustache was perfectly trimmed. I applied an aftershave lotion with alcohol and felt cooled and refresh - there was no razor burn. I have a medium heavy beard that was easily removed using a 45 degree shaving angle (instead of the usual 30 degree shaving angel). Buy this razor, even if you have to save for a long time. This shaver will give you a life time of close, comfortable shaves. But take the time to learn how to use it, especially if you are new to shaving. Finally, this is the 4th razor I have purchased from WestCoastShaving.com and I have always received quality products at a competitive price with excellent service.

Best DE safety razor, bar none!
I have a collection of safety razors from inexpensive, to highly expensive. I own the Pils 101ne ($260), the Cobra classic ($200) and an Above the Tie S2 ($180). I own numerous Merkurs, a EJ and a Parker. I like them all and love a few, but after shaving with the Feather for over a month now, this is the BEST razor in my bunch. It can be used as a daily shaver for a BBS shave with zero irritation. I can't say that about my other razors. My Pils was actually a let down for the price I paid for it and comparing it to a Feather AS-D2. This is a very mild razor but it gives the best BBS shave, better than any of my aggressive razors minus slight razor burn on the neck areas. This razor may not work to well for thick dense beards, but what mild razor really does? That's when one needs a slant bar or open comb razor for the occasional beard cut-off. But for the daily shaver, the Feather is the way to go. You get what you pay for.

A splurge but it is outstanding.
The Feather AS-D2 is for me effective, comfortable, close, balance, very well made, great grip and nothing I can think of to complain about except maybe the price. As a normally frugal person I thought it was over-priced. It may be, but it is something I use every day not two weeks in the summer.







I can make almost anything work. I was a regular straight razor user for a decade and have done a range of experimentation - including knives a small axe etc. - yes I know it is weird. I experimented with a Feather Popular Safety Razor (butterfly or twist-to-open style). Edwin Jagger DE89L. The Feather Popular is good for the money but it not a low cost Feather AS-D2. The Edwin Jagger DE89L is very popular and beautiful. It shaves well but it is not a low cost AS-D2 either. The DE89L is the lined version and is too slippery when wet and soapy for a good grip in my experience.







There isn't much I have purchased that I thought was so premium and so consistently enjoyable to use - and I don't like shaving - but when I don't the rate of kisses starts to drop off. This razor gives me a BBS shave resulting in more kisses and that makes it worth the money.

Exceptional
Build quality, fit & finish, weight, and balance are superb. I wanted a nice DE as a backup to my straights for those days when the extra time for the process isn’t available, and for carry on travel (I know, I ship blades ahead or purchase at destination). I’ve tried several, with costs ranging from much less to a little more, and I’m very happy to settle on the Feather. My skin is sensitive, and my beard isn’t terribly thick. The common complaint seems to be lack of efficiency, and I’d agree that’s true - ya not getting bbs on a single pass. I get great reduction on the 1st, and can make it serviceable with touch ups. I get a nice shave with 2 passes, and the 3rd offers bonafide bbs. Here’s the part that matters to me and makes that “lack” of efficiency a non issue: it’s just silly silky smooth. Highly recommended.

A New Classic...
I've tried them all (razors)...yes, I can get a degree or two closer with other high end and some low-end razors but these also have their issues. This razor is a daily user for me. The angle is a little different but that is OK. It offers the most comfortable shave of any I have and zero irritation. It is mild but very efficient when used properly. I love all my razors but some get close, smooth results while having to really pay attention and their is usually a price to pay at the end of the process (irritation)--there is a time for that. But for a daily shave this one really works for me. It will stay in my daily rotation. It is a workhorse and it is beautiful.
