    I have a feather SS Japanese style. I use straights too. But I find myself using the feather often to trim my beard, especially above my mustache, and my bottom lip. I like both the feather and traditional straights. Hard to say which I like best. both have their advantages.

    I've used the Feather SS folder, DX folder, and DX kamisori. I use the DX folder as a civilized travel razor, and the SS as a "roughing it"/camping/out of doors/zombie apocalypse razor. Apparently I don't agree with kamisoris and no longer own the DX kami, but have kept the SS and DX folders. All are fantastic products in my opinion.
    !! Enjoy the exquisite taste sharpening sharpening taste exquisite smooth. Please taste the taste enough to ride cutlery.

    I've used one shavette. I think of it as the moist towelette of the shaving world.
    I removed a piece of skin from my cheek which I referred to as Bill-sashimi. It was probably an inch long, remarkably thin, and not very wide.

    I didn't tried any Feather shavette, but i do have a Equinox full DE blade. The weight the balance of that shavette is to my opinion very close to a straight, so has the quality of the shaves. If you put your best DE blade in it you get good results

    In 1964 a barber gave me a shavette made by Schick. It took a Schick SE injector blade and was really a horror. The Feathers are like night and day to the early shavettes.

    Since I change the scales on the Feather SS I am reading enjoying the shave. It's like a straight razor. Use with a Kai mild blade and it is a real pleasure to use. I no longer take a straight on travel.
