    For me Feathers are the most irritating blade I have ever used. They
    leave my face covered in weepers and rosy irritation (particularly on
    my upper lip and my neck). Nacet and Personna med prep have the same
    kind of sharpness, but are smooth and gentle.

    Established wet shaver here. Feather works for me. Maggard’s strong business profile and reasonable shipping cost brought me aboard as a first-time buyer. Time from order to my mailbox was two days.

    Quick note. I’d let my personal appearance go for years. Then I tightened up: wet shave, regular haircut, a flat cap or shaped hat (Bailey is good). Sounds corny, but people notice, and they treat you a bit better.

    Nothing to fear, here. Feathers are sharp and mow down hair very efficiently. They are not, in my opinion, dangerous for anyone familiar with wet shaving. I have had no nicks or cuts using them. I have my best results with vintage Gillette adjustables (Slim, Fat Boy, Black Beauty) or Feather’s own razors (the cheap one works pretty well with these blades). The problem, as others have noted, is that they lose that sharp edge rather quickly. I have medium beard density and average skin, but can only get two good shaves with these. After that, the third shave is noticeably worse and requires a lot more touch-up. They are about average in the smoothness department, but do not tug. I would keep Feathers for the occasions when you require a very close, BBS shave, but not a good choice for daily use — they just wear out too fast.

    Sharp and high quality blades. However, there are other blades in the market that provide similar results.

    I really love these blades! Feathers are the second type of blades I’ve ever tried, and they were a huge step up from the Voskhods I started on. My facial hair is fairly course, and my skin is somewhat sensitive. More sensitive on my neck where the grain gets swirly. My Voskhods needed multiple passes, and would just tug like crazy. All the passes would consistently leave me red.
    The Feathers mow down my whiskers with no tugging and no irritation. They are aggressive, but I’ve found that I need that aggressiveness to reduce how many passes I need for a good shave. Feathers leave me extremely smooth after two passes, and a third rarely feel needed.
    If you have course hair and sensitive skin, I highly recommend paring Feathers with a V3 head.

    By far my favorite blade to go with my gillette super speed razor. I have mostly coarse hair that grows in many different directions and these blades have given me the smoothest shave. They’re not too forgiving, so you can’t be in a hurry though.

    I am not rating the quality of the blades. I’m rating the quality of my experience using these blades. First, Maggard’s excellent customer service told me that these blades were very sharp, and they were correct, but I still wanted to see how they work for me. After going through about five blades, here is what I think. For my beard and skin type, these blades do not work well. No doubt, these blades cut very close. But, these Feathers cause razor burn, particularly on the tougher spots on my face. With most blades, I occasionally get cut, but cuts are fairly regular with the Feather blades.

    Everyone should try these blades. They have a huge following. I hoped for a better experience, but it did not work out that way. There is no doubt the Feather blades are a sharp, quality blade. However, I had a difficult time with them. I will put my remaining five Feather blades aside and give them a try in the future. Things can change. Thanks.

    These blades are by far the best blades I have ever used. I have been safety razor shaving for about 2 1/2 years now and have tried every blade there is. I have a very coarse beard and have struggled with a sharp and smooth enough blade…until now. Do not let others reviews scare you of this blade is too sharp and you can hack your face off, blah, blah blah. If you have a good technique then you have nothing to worry about. These blades provided me with the smoothest and closest shave I have had yet. The best part is…no razor burn at all. I love these blades and they will be my blade from now on.

    The absolute sharpest and best quality blades i have ever used. Definitely worth the price. You easily get sevral shave from one blade. Closest shave you can get. They very aggressive as well as sharpness. Proper technique will result in exceptional shaves.

    With my not so coarse beard, Feather blades are superb in the Feather AS-D2 or Pils razor.

    Использую их со станком Muehle R89 – очень нравится. Одним лезвием могу побриться 5-6 раз, потом начинается дискомфорт.
    Очень острые и в то же время “нежные” лезвия
    Рекомендую!

    The best…..if you can handle it. Those that cry about these blades being “too sharp” (because they’re indeed the sharpest blade on the market), just can’t handle the “horse power,”. The sharper the blade, the less pulling and tearing at ome’s hair in the beard. Those that get “cut up” from these blades, probably should move up to a better razor and learn to hone in on their skill abilities. I love these blades because I know how to shave and I use a quality “Fearher AS-D2 razor.”

    I had to see for myself what the hype was all about. Yessir, Feathers are sharp as the dickens. They can turn a mild razor such as a Jagger into an aggressive instrument. These are not very smooth. And they are ten for five bucks, making them dear. So, that is the trade-off. If you have been shaving long enough so you have your technique down, give em a try. Just take your time.

    The benchmark for sharpness in a DE blade. Kai and Feather are my two favorite brands followed by Personna Blues. The feather was the first really sharp blade I used and I always know I can put a fresh blade in any DE razor and if I do my part get an absolute BBS shave. If you have super sensitive skin or a smooth blade is more important than a sharp one look elsewhere but none will deliver the performance of these or Kai. As an aside I have sensitive skin and get no irritation if I use the correct amount of pressure with these blades. They also require less touch up which also equates to less irritation as later passes tend to irritate my skin more than the initial one or two. 5 star blades in my opinion.

    Super sharp, but not durable. My beard is somewhat thick, and I’m able to get 4 good shaves/blade (I normally get 8-10 shaves/blade with other brands). These might be good for those with finer beards.

    :

    Far and away, these are the best blades. If you’re looking for a efficiency, you’ve found it here. Feather blades will mow down heavy growth with no issues. Just beware, I would not suggest these to a beginning wet shaver.

    Just tried Feather for the first time, having tried ‘Shark’ and another blade starting with the letter ‘
    D’. Anyway, these blades are the BEST! The Sharks were good, very good, but…the feathers were just a higher quality in sharpness and pliability. I’m a beginner, and I’m giving the Feathers a Superb rating!

    One of, if not the best blade on the market today. I bought the 10 pack to try them out and was immediately impressed. Will be ordering the bulk selection ASAP. Yes they are more expensive but for me it’s worth it.

    :

    The sharpness, smoothness, and durability of these blades are just incredible. Everything about these blades are top quality and are a must try for anyone in the DE shaving community. I believe these to be my favorite DE blades.

    I bought the Feather AS-D2 razor and it came with a 5 pack of feather blades. I was anxious to try these since all I have seen is, ‘watch out these will slice you unless your Picasso with a de razor!’ Well I was in for a big surprise. This may sound crazy but these are smoother than my Astra greens and PolSilver super iridiums. I’ve now shaved with them in a Pils 101 NE, Feather AS-D2, Ikon #101 & #102. No nicks, no slices and get this ZERO irritation!!! Yes they are that good. The others I usually have to apply some pressure on a few spots and that ultimately leads to a weeper or two come third pass to hit those hidden spots chasing a bbs shave. The feathers I shaved applying zero pressure and it mowed down the hair with no pull. I finished with a bbs, no weepers! I just put in the order for the 100 pack. Try these out. Grab the 10 pack and be open minded and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

    A good blade for me, very reliable and consistent ( for me). My wife’s favorite blade.

  23. 5 out of 5

    :

    These DE blades will vary from razor to razor. They can be a top performing blade in one razor, but they can also be down right evil in another. They are evil sharp and very unforgiving if you don’t have your technique down. So please exercise extreme caution while using these DE blades.

  24. 4 out of 5

    :

    There is no denying the edge on a Feather blade, but your technique had better be spot on as they are not forgiving. Incredible sharpness, like no other blade I’ve yet tried.

  25. 5 out of 5

    :

    These razors are exactly what they advertise. Sharp and to the point. First pass WTG handled a 4 day stubble with ease. Second and third pass were even better. Did not irritate as other blades did, but I was also using a new razor, so it could be a combination of both. They paired well with the MR6, very sharp, no drag, make sure to include in your sample pack.

  26. 5 out of 5

    :

    I enjoyed these blades quite a bit from my sample pack. Still have a few to go. I did get a bit of razor burn but that’s most likely due to my novice and not the blade. They were incredibly sharp as everyone has pointed out and I did not experience any drag. I’ll try the few I have left soon to see if I’ve gotten any better!

  27. 5 out of 5

    :

    Sharp as all get out, is all I can say! This is absolutely the sharpest blade I have ever encountered. I don’t really have the best technique yet but I’m still learning. But seriously these blades are great!, no drag or pulling. Deffinitly a keeper for the routine.

  28. 4 out of 5

    :

    I found these blades to be excellent for the first shave (quite sharp, glides through my beard with no irritation). I took away a star since things change with the second shave–the blades are noticeably duller and it gets worse with the third. So, strangely, one of the best blades I’ve used for the first shave, and pretty mediocre for each successive shave. This could have something to do with the coarseness of my beard, and YMMV. Because of the subjectivity of blade reviews (you have to find the right blade for your skin/hair), I would definitely recommend giving these a try.

    My perfect fit for my Edwin Jagger. Sharp as all get out, no dragging. Your results may vary.

  30. 4 out of 5

    :

    Excellent blades. Very sharp, but also unforgiving of poor technique. I deducted a star because they tend to be rather expensive compare to similar performing blades.

  31. 5 out of 5

    :

    Sharpest razor I’ve encountered yet. Not scary sharp like I was expecting, but I did notice that I got the least amount irritation and razor burn than any other blade I’ve ever tried. So thankful these exist, but just have to use ‘feather’ like pressure to avoid irritation and nicks/weepers. Will be buying a 100 pack soon.
