That's it for Feather DE blades:

Today's shave also told me that I used my last Feather DE blade today. They're just too sharp for my sensitive skin and cause too much razor burn for me. So I have to pull the plug on ordering some more of those blades. Personna gave a pretty good shave in a slant, but unfortunately they simply don't last in a slant so it looks like I'll be trying some new blades here pretty soon. I'm also looking at getting a new razor here pretty soon. So I'm going to try a sample pack of blades to see how things go and which ones work best for me that doesn't cause alot of razor burn and go from there. I'm still pursuing my straight razor hobby and need to have a couple of razors re-honed.

I don't use it much at all and the tubes of Arko has a bit of a weak scent. The shaving stick was horrible and very drying, while the tubes had the opposite effect. The tubes of Arko performed well and all, but the made in the U.S.A. artisan soaps destroys Arko in every way possible in terms of performance and sometimes in price points as well. So once my tube of Arko is gone that I purchased 3 months ago, I will not be getting anymore of it. I also won't be getting anymore mainstream products either.
