I think you'll have a slight issue with the Feather versus the EJ89. The handle angle to your face to get a good shave seems to me to be quite different from most other DEs. I have one and have to take a couple of days getting used to the feel of the razor versus my 34C and EJ89. Same thing versus the Super Speeds. The Feather is a fine piece of craftsmanship, but it doesn't shave one iota better than the others. For me, the EJ89s and the late 40s SS are better shavers.

I checked the obits in the morning paper and I'm still alive.....
