Good luck with that Feather AC! I'm thinking you'll like it. I'd definitely give the real straight a try too if you are interested. There are plenty of decent 'shave-ready' straights on the buy/sell forum here and SRP ... and read the threads ... explore the info ...
It's personal preference as to what grind and blade width &c, although I'd stay away from really small blades (3/8, 4/8) for now. Personal preference on tips too, buy IMHO the round tip is better for a n00b as a pointed or square tip can cause unexpected damage in non-expert hands.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
