Feather razor

Anyone else using one?
In the weekend, my shaving ritual takes quite some time and always is a real straight.
During the week I sometimes use a feather to do a 1 pass water shave.

Not a feather but I do have a Weck set that I sometimes take when I travel. It does a decent job.

That's another consideration as well. I use that one always when traveling.
That way I never have to worry about humidity, stropping, or loss.

I am sure that you have more than one mistake that is still usable although not very marketable.

That what I would use if I was you.

Yeah, but I do like the act of shaving with something that behaves similar to a straight. I am used to the shaving angles.
A DE would just not be similar enough.

I have 1 or 2 I don't care about a whole lot. But that still leaves the need to take a strop, and some basic razor care.

I don't have a "Feather" but I have a CJB in the kamisori shape. I guess there is a subtle difference in the two models of the feather with the thickness or something where they hold the blade but can't remember for sure. The CJB uses the Feather blades though. I like it quite a bit with the Feather Pro blades. Angle is slightly different when using but not enough that it becomes uncomfortable or requires a lot of concentration.

I also have 3 Weck razors and a Dubl Duck that takes the Weck blades. They are nice, but do not feel as sharp to me as a good straight honing and definitely not as sharp as a Feather blade.

The Wecks and Feathers are a little different as they don't used a DE blade. They have a longer stiffer blade and are easier to control without biting the end of the blade into your face as easily as with a shavette that uses a DE blade. I tried a shavette early on and don't have any desire to ever pick one up again. Straights and the feather and weck systems though, I have no issues with.
That doesn't mean I'm not in the least bit crazy though. ;):D

yes , last time I checked feaher had an insert so that you could be cheap and use a DE blade so I assumed Weck did too.
