My new Feather DE arrived today and I can hardly wait to try it in the morning. I am going to lather with Mitchel's Wool Fat and give that bad boy a serious try!
Here is a picture along side a Merkur, HD Slant and a Fat Boy, so you can get an idea of the size.
It is noticeably heavier than the HD. The fit and finish is fantastic.
It does not exactly offset the cost, bit they do throw in a 10-pack of Feather blades.
