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.
