My first shave with the razor was interesting. I started off like I would with any other DE razor, paying close attention to the angle and making sure I wasn't exerting any undue pressure. I was being careful. But... after a few moments I realised that I can just relax and let the razor do its work. Sure, I still held the the razor by the handle and applied the razor head to my face, but that is where the similarities to other DE razors ended - it really felt like I was shaving with an electric again. In a good way! (I seriously reckon I could get hurt worse with a Gillette cartridge, but maybe that was just bad technique on my part, back in the day).
So... as you can probably guess, I am pretty impressed with the Feather AS-D2. So much so that this will be my default everyday shaving tool. The razor I will reach for when I just want to achieve a damn fine shave without any dramas or surprises. I really didn't expect to like it straight away, but my first shave with it was an unqualified success. And every shave since then.
I'm glad I spent the extra $50 on the razor and stand set - the stand is gorgeous and very functional. Perfect! (Posted on 6/02/2014)
Instantly in using the Feather razor I knew that it was the razor for me. At first I was not able to achieve my best shave but knew with practice and attention to technique it would provide a great shave as in the hand it is extremely balanced, easy to control and very forgiving in terms of irritation etc.
Now after using it for a few weeks I am getting great shaves that keep getting better. Now practiced in handling the feather it is extremely forgiving even with feather blades and remains free of water stains etc. due to its stainless construction.

I use this razor daily on a med/heavy beard and love it. It feels quite mild with a Feather blade but is extremely effective. For me, sharp blade and good technique gives the best overall result.
The blade angle is slightly different than most razors and takes a little getting used to, however it doesn’t take long to get the feel.
One of the things I have noticed about the AS is I get a lot more mileage out of my blades. Up to 6-8 good shaves as opposed to 3-4 good shaves with a Gillette Tech using the same blades. Possibly because the design locks the blade in place right to the edges eliminating any flex and enabling it to slice through heavy whiskers without bouncing.
Worth the money and will last forever.

I actually look forward to shaving with this razor. It's simple design and satin finish that give it a look as sharp as the feather blades themselves! Extremely well balanced with a nice weight to it and as Boris the Blade says "Heavy is good, Heavy is reliable".
If I had the money, I would buy these for everyone in my family. I find this razor, coupled with Feather blades and Acqua Di Parma Shaving Cream will give you a shave that'll make you wonder why you didn't make the change to DE shaving years earlier!
I have used a whole DE blade sampler pack in this razor and all blades work well and all fit perfectly into the razor itself so don't worry if the feather blades aren't for you (Posted on 13/12/2012)
