I FINALLY found a place out in town that carries the Feather Popular.
Some of you who haven't seen my posts might not be surprised that I couldn't find it... but then you realize I actually live in Japan right now, and so I was getting really, really frustrated.
I needed to shave today after just using my electric this morning on the ship, so I loaded it up with one of the included Feather blades (also bought some of those!) and gave it a shot. At first I tried to use the shaving cream they sold, but no luck making lather with it. So, back to the shaving soap and a decent (not great) lather... I kind of like this razor!
It's light, but as has been said before it's well put togethor and I think the included carrying case is a nice touch.
Anyone want one? They're only 670 yen. A pack of blases is Y505 out in town, however. Ouch.
