I was in Japan the other day, and I stopped in a shopping mall to buy feather shaving supplies. The lovely Feather DE razor at just 700 yen (around 6 euro!!) and a box of 10 feather blades 500 yen... What surprised me is that I found a brand of blades in a blue cardboard box (no plastic container, just the box), and all the text was in japanese. I only could see the feather japanese website written on it, so I guessed they are also manufactured by them. Difference is, they were just 299 yen per 10 blades, which leads me to think... feather low cost?
I was searching for references in this site, some review, some comment... I might have missed it, but I found nothing. Does anybody know what am I talking about?... I am quite curious to see if they are real feathers...
