    Feather AC and Rust: A Cautionary Tale

    Long story short: I left a Pro Super blade in my Feather AC SS for 2-3 weeks. I used it for a few shaves, and some touch-up now and then, but for the most part I was using my DX and other razors...

    Shaved with my Equinox last night, with an Indian Green. Nice face feel for a shavette that takes a DE blade. And certainly no problem mowing down whiskers.

    Since you like aggressive razors, you may want to explore the world of devettes. I started using them a little over a year ago, and never looked back.
