Thanks to Landri, today tried a Feather on my Gillete Twist.
Amazing difference over my locally available schicks.
Followed usual Feathers advice for very careful, short strokes, as well as paid special mind to the level of pressure I was putting on the head (still tend to overdo it on my neck).
Happy to report no annihilation of my skin, cuts, scrapes or significant irritation so far. Amazingly close and nice shave, now I understand how you can do a 4 pass and get close! ;)
