After converting to DE shaving, I’ve tried a variety of blades and razors. My first razor was the Merkur 34C, followed by the Merkur Futur, Muhle R89 and Edwin Jagger DE8911 and now the Feather AS-D2. Yes, I am a little nutty about my razors but I found my skin was more sensitive than I realized so while I loved the feather blades, I couldn’t use them with the previous razors. Trying a feather with the Muhle R89 was the most scariest experience you can imagine. However, the Feather AS-D2, for me, is the greatest shave I’ve experienced. It tames the feather blade better than any other razor I’ve tried. Coupled with Pre de Province and Taylor of Old Bond Shave Cream, I am loving the experience. Granted this is an expensive razor, but I shave every day and for me the experience is worthy of the cost.
