Fantastic blades - I've had the same box for years and I'm still not out.

They're beautifully sharp but unforgiving, so be careful when you're whisking these around the nethers.

Great deal! I still have a ton of Astra blades that I picked up like a year ago. I really like them. Lots of people like the Feathers but I haven't had a chance to try them out.

Good deal. I'm not even half way on the box I bought in 2014.

something like this https://www.amazon.ca/Quality-Adjustabl ... B06XGVRQKP
To get less of a shave I've been tilting the razor more into it's end, still shaves nicely. Not sure if this was the intended way to adjust angles.

I agree with the previous poster on the adjustable. I would go to the Merkur Progress though. Only $68 at Amazon and well made.

I think people play up the sharpness of Feathers a bit much. I keep coming back to them and find over time they ensure your skin is super smooth. There is no doubt an adjustment period, but once you are over it, they are pretty much perfect. This is the 5 pack format with the integrated blade disposal, which is perfect IMHO.

I have them all of my handles.

Merkur Progress long pole (adjustable from 1 to 5...5 being most exposed. I have mine set to 4)

Parker 98R (heavy razor with more blade exposure so it's a bit more aggressive but not overly so)

Edwin Jagger DE89BL (travel or when I'm in a rush....least aggressive)

If you know someone who has a safety razor, you could ask to borrow it and try out. That's how I ended up with the Progress. I had a Weishi starter razor and that was good to learn with. I don't fiddle around with the settings on my progress much. IIRC, even at 2 the razor is still a bit more exposed. From my experience, it's definitely not one I would recommend to start out with.

I would suggest the Edwin Jagger DE89BL. Its forgiving and gives a fairly close shave with lower blade exposure. Build quality wise, it's solid.
