Made in Japan, Feather blades are known for being some of the sharpest double-edge blades on the market. Blades feature a platinum coating for a close, comfortable shave from a razor that is easy to maintain. Stainless steel razors fit most double edge razors.
These blades are so sharp, so smooth, so effective at cutting through my beard. Just to double check, after about 2 weeks using the Feather blades, I tried another Derby blade to see if I could get comparable results. I simply couldn't. After 2 or 3 dragging, tugging, pulling cuts with a (new) Derby blade, I put back in the Feather and may never use another brand of blades again.
By far the sharpest of the blades I've tried, the Feather will give a startlingly close shave. As the other users have pointed out, that sharpness is double-edged: you must pay attention to what you are doing, and you cannot hurry too much. Careless dragging of this blade will leave your face looking like a crime scene. A careful shave will produce a delightfully smooth cheek.
