Feather AS-D2: the best razor, the best shave
5/29/2017
Feather AS-D2 Stainless Safety Razor My kids gave me my Feather AS-D2 for my Xmas Eve birthday end of '16. There is no question that I'm getting the best shave of my life. High-quality products truly make a difference--my Feather razor, my Art of Shaving badger brush, and my Cella shaving soap are all five stars with me. My favorite blades are Feather, Wilkinson, Pro-Silver, Crystal, and the Personnas, in no particular order. After every shave, I feel like I just got out of my barber's chair. For the first time in my life I'm comfortable with shaving every other day, after years of twice-a-week shaves.

Feather AS-D2 Stainless Safety Razor "This is the absolutely the finest razor one can buy. I little on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. With a feather blade I had to check to see if there was a blade inserted - smooth as silk. I have tried a number of high priced razors but none performed like the feather. This is an heirloom. Simply love it.

Nice Progression from First DE Razor
5/3/2017
Muhle R41 Double Edge Safety Razor, Open Comb "My first DE razor was a Merkur 34C and I've shaved with it more or less daily for about 2 years. Prior to that was a Personna Twin. Both are excellent and I contend far better in every way to the plastic, expensive, drug store alternatives. I love my Merkur and have used (and reviewed here) a fairly wide swath of blades with it. But, when I travel or shave in the shower or every now and again use my Personna Twin, I get this secret knot in the pit of my stomach that tells me that I'm working too hard with my 34C and struggling to get the perfect shave that I want...so, I decided to try a "next" DE razor to see if it made a difference and I chose this one based on reviews.



It is quite noticeably different than the Merkur 34C. I think it is actually what I expected the Merkur to be like, scary and perhaps a bad idea. My first shave was a bit bloody, but more than that, I was surprised at how much my skin hurt afterward. Even though my brain said "less pressure", I think my hand thought it was still the Merkur.



But, 3 shaves later, not a scratch and no blood. I have to say that I get a MUCH closer shave with this Muhle. Now that I've adjusted to it, I see no reason not to use it as a daily shaver. It essentially what I wanted, it contrasts with the 34C and I get a closer shave with way less work and fewer passes than I had been expended. I'm glad it wasn't my first DE razor, though.



It's finished nicely and everything is good. I think that I actually like the handle and knurling on the Merkur better, but it's not important and because it's a 3 piece, I could always use a different handle if I wanted to, though I don't think I will. I'm using Astra blades which are my default, but I'll experiment a bit. The thing with this razor is that you know that there is a blade on your face, you can feel it quite clearly, which I never really did with the Merkur.



If it's what you want, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I'm happy and plan on sticking with it, though my Merkur isn't going anywhere and I could see some wisdom in a rotation, perhaps. Thanks WCS!

Muhle R41 Double Edge Safety Razor, Open Comb "West Coast shaving is an excellent company to deal with. There customer service is unsurpassed.



The R41- I was a little worried about it being so aggressive anxiety all the. I found this not to be true. I quickly learned that it is all about the angle of the blade. I get the closest shaves. Most of the time it is one pass with clean up and done. I had read that is the closest DE to a straight razor. I believe it. I have yet to cut myself with it or even get a razor burn.



I would recommend this razor to anyone looking at using an open comb razor.

Feather AS-D2 Stainless Safety Razor "An incredible razor. Perfectly balance and superbly crafted. I can barely feel it on my skin and yet my shave is close and nick-free. Combined with the Feather blades, an unparalleled shaving experience. It takes a bit of practice to hold the razor at the 45 degree angle, but once mastered, it is a breeze. Do not waste your money on another razor--buy this one.

Merkur Futur Safety Razor Matte Chrome "Buy this razor. Outstanding piece of German engineering. Slightly larger than my non-adjustable Merkurs but MUCH better shave. Adjustability a big plus, especially when I need to dial it down for blades like Feathers. Vastly under priced.

Q:<p>I am 58 and I have been shaving against the grain since I was 17 (disposable blades). I recently purchased and returned the Feather AS-D2 (amazon). It was my first safety razor. I found I could get a close shave and I did try shaving first with the grain and last against the grain. Which of your razors would you recommend ?? the Merkur 34C or the Merkur Futur. Thank you.</p>

A:The Merkur 34C is a great razor and one we highly recommend. This is you standard safety razor and a lot of people love the 34C. The Merkur Futur is also a great razor because it is adjustable. You can change the exposure oft he blade to make it more or less aggressive.
