Review From Shaving 101 Site:
"For many shavers, there is nothing comparable to the Feather blade. These Japanese-made blades are the sharpest available on the market today. Feather blades are renowned among wet shavers for their ability to easily cut through even the coarsest beard types with ease. Because Feathers are so sharp, men with very sensitive skin can find these a bit uncomfortable and overly aggressive. The use of these blades also requires that you are proficient in properly preparing your skin and creating a protective lather with your shaving soap or cream. While these are very high quality blades, they are not recommend for beginner shavers as they leave very little margin for error if you are not accustomed to proper pressure and blade angle with your safety razor."
I have a Merkur 23C, a Edwin Jagger, and a Gillette 1957 Super Speed. I have not tried them in the Gillette but they work very well in the other two! They don't seem harsh to me as some others have indicated. Very sharp and produce a great shave!
One of my go-to blades. Almost too sharp on the first shave, but excellent and long-lived thereafter. I prefer my Russian options, but Feathers are always on hand.
Very aggressive and stays sharp for a lot of shaves!
Thet are the sharpest saftey razor blades I have ever used.
I’ve tried them all and these are by far the greatest razors ever made. I have tough and thick facial hair and thes cut right through it. I typically get 6 shaves out of one of these while I only get 4 out of other blades.
Smoothest shave yet.
Has become my go to standard.
I've been using these Feather blades in my new Feather ASD2 for a few months now. Great close shave with no irritation.
Love these blades. My favorite go to blades, (along with the Kai blades) for DE shaving.
Will Not use anything else. Once you've used Feather or Kai blades, the rest are like shaving with a butter knife.
