Thank Celestino, I am.
The Feather blade is super sharp so I'm not experiencing the same care free shaves that I am used to with my DEs.
However the extra effort is rewarding me with some fine shaves indeed.

Very nice Ben. I've been using straights since 2010 but have yet to try the Feathers. I do have one of the new SS models, in both folding and Kamisori style, on my list of upcoming acquisitions. I enjoy honing my straights. There is a certain satisfaction to producing a sharp edge yourself. However, I think the Feathers will provide a new shaving experience and complement my traditional straights nicely.

Oh... The RG folding just landed, so that officially makes 7!
Now the cull can begin. What works best for me will stay, the others will be released...

Very nice collection Ben, I've always thought Feather should bring out a collection of inter changeable handles using various materials and colours.

I sometimes think of just moving in next door to Ben in order to get first shot at his castoffs.

Often I feel like the most isolated shaver in the world. There are never and PIFs in my area and very few stores that even stock the most basic items (at hugely inflated prices). Judging by the various forums' memberships my closest neighbour who shares the same interest is at least a 4 hour plane trip away. Therefore my only option is to buy if I want to try.
