Tried Feather blade for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it didn't go well at all. Very poor, patchy shave with the odd weeper & it left me questioning the high regard some other members give them. Many suggested it was my poor technique & that I should try it again at a later date.
I tried out a new blade in my sample pack after that (7 o'clock super platinum - blue) and it was awesome for both head & face shaves with my R89. I've used the blue 7 o'clock blades since resulting in fantastic BBS shaves with no irritation so I thought I'd pretty much nailed my technique.
Today I popped in a new feather to give it a fair try. Result - what a horrible shave!! Again it has left me with patches of stubble & nowhere near as smooth as any of the other blades I've ever tried. Really don't see what all the fuss is about? All I know is I've got 7 or 8 Feather blades that won't see the light of day in my razor ever again! 👎
