Simply twist the knob and the razor head opens up so you can insert a new blade. This TTO (turn to open) or "butterfly" style razor is also adjustable, meaning you can make it more or less aggressive.

The Feather Popular DE razor is a economical and light-weight razor that offers a close and comfortable shave. The body is made of an attractive plastic and the silo doors are made of metal. This is a great starter razor for those interested in starting DE razor shaving. Case included.
Matt has rated all of the blades he sells for aggression. Buying a blade pack allows you to experiment with different blades to decide what's right for you without investing a lot of money.
I wanted to give safety razors a try but wanted something that was inexpensive, good quality and mild. Feather's reputation is pretty well established so I decided to give them a try. This razor was the perfect place to start. The mild setting made it possible to ease into DE shaving without nicks or cuts. As it turns out, the mild setting of this razor is perfect for me. My recommendation is that if you want to give DE shaving a try, the combination of a butterfly razor and the mild setting make this Feather the perfect choice. I also recommend buying one of Matt's blade packs. Trying different blades is a plus as you're learning a new approach to shaving.
Lots of plastic, but well designed and quality is there. Performed well. Travel. Beginner. Not a show off piece. Feather products work well.
I really like the easy grip handle. It feels cheap. I don't like the plastic guard bar (?). I do like that it is adjustable. Good for travel.
