Thanks for the tip:  I pulled the trigger on it today.
Which may lead to “misery” (and I shall blame you.)  On the basis of having used one five-blade tuck of Feathers (about 30 shaves, total), and having shaved with many more KAI blades than Feather blades, I had decided that I prefer KAI blades to Feather blades, and I had just got in a refill order of 50 KAIs.  That does not mean that I found Feathers bad; Feathers may be the second  best blade that I ever have tried.  But I now shall have twice as many Feathers waiting for use as I have KAIs, and — if I am to run through the two stocks proportionally I shall have to use two Feather blades for every one KAI blade that I use; which means, in turn, that two-thirds of the time for the next 900 shaves or so I shall be depriving myself of the ultimate KAI experience because I took advantage of the great price on the Feathers.

Feathers are awesome I use them on all my razors including my aggressive ones. 20$ is a good price for 100 pack, I will be ordering.

Already having ordered from IB, I noticed this morning that a certain giant on-line retailer has lowered its price on 100 Feathers to be even lower if one has a Prime membership (as I do) to eliminate the shipping costs that IB adds to the price of the blades.
