I used to own the now rare Feather Popular 3 piece compact razor that is an amazing shaver. Feather stopped making them years ago but a guy from another forum about 6 years ago was selling them for $6.50 delivered. Now if you can get one be prepared to spend well over $100. While browsing eBay I came across this seller who I happened to do business with in the past. He is selling the very rare popular but this appears to be a promotional deal from Shell Oil Co from years ago. I bought one without hesitation as it was only $17 delivered.

The site has one more left as a buy it now.

Very interesting! They look a lot like the "Feather Portable"s that Pauldog was selling a few years ago at SMF. Smile

They do look like the Portable. I should be getting mine next week and will know for sure if it's a Portable however, the razor says Popular. Years ago Feather was interchanging names.
