Feather AC Shavette Review....

About 2 months ago, I purchased a Feather AC (AC is short for Artist Club) non-folding japanese style razor. It's a shavette which works like a straight razor, but it uses an injector style replacable blade system. That takes all of the maintence out of the equation for those that are on the go and want a classic or traditional wet shave that you can get at alot of barber shops across the country. The razor itself is kindly on the expensive side of things and usually starts at around $100 bucks or more. The version I purchased can be used like a safety razor on certain areas of the face such as the cheeks, along the jaw line and chin areas. The blade holder of the razor is solid stainless steel while the previous models were a mixture of brass and stainless steel. The current model also has a rolled edge which relieves pressure along the blade which allows a much more comfortable and milder shave compared to the previous model's pointed version of the blade holder. The handle has a gel like resin which is extremely easier to grip even with wet hands compared to hard plastic type resin that you'd get on the folding version and previous models. Feather's shavettes or straight razors all use the same blades and only those blades. For me, the folding version was ruled out because I have alot of old injuries and some nerve problems and can't use the proper techniques need to acheive a close and smooth shave. Unfortunately, my skin is too sensitive and can't handle the post shave of a Feather straight razor or shavette. Now the only drawbacks to this shaving system is the fact that you can only use Feather's injector style blades and none of them are budget friendly either. You only have 4 to choose from and they're extremely sharp. Some say that they're too sharp. I find this to be true for some people especially those that have extremely sensitive skin. Another prblem is the price of this razor. The model I chose sold for $120.00 bucks at westcoast shaving supplies. That's more than all 3 of my other razors. So if you do have the funds availible, you can try the Feather AC or DX systems if you wish to try a straight razor type of shave but with the ease of a safety razor. I would NOT purchase this item again mainly because it has too high of a price point.

Today's shave was really good. For today's brush, I went with my RazoRock Plissoft 24 mm Synthetic  which builds an excellent if no...
