Closest shave with a straight razor
Feather blades are unparalleled for sharpness and with good technique provide comfort as well. I enjoy my DX and find that when I'm in the mood for the best straight razor shave this is my go to razor. I also enjoy my carbon steel straights but find that with the Feather blades they cut just a tad closer and with the added sharpness a smoother shave is attained with less strokes and hence less irritation. The learning curve is up to you but once you get the correct blade angle and pressure the rest is pure nirvana.
