    That is a great combo. I get the best shaves out of mine with a feather also.

    i used a feather in my krona yesterday, it cut open every bump on my skin, i think i have a problem with a heavy hair + sensative skin,
    or maybe the razor is so mild it requires too much force by my part to get a decent shave
