This is the latest version of the Feather AS-D2 double-edged safety razor, which comes packed with its matching stainless-steel stand and a pack of five Feather DE blades. Made in Japan by Feather from 100% Stainless Steel the AS-D2 safety razor is a work of art.
Especially good for those looking for a close, but mild, irritation-free shave, this razor is an absolute joy to use. The Feather is not too mild for tough beards, it's all down to technique, get the angle right and this razor will shave off even the toughest of bristles.
This is a high precision razor; the razor is perfectly balanced so that the weight is in the head, not the handle, so you get meaningful feedback from the blade when shaving.
Make no mistake - the Feather Safety Razor is for connoisseurs of fine engineering and beauty. The three-piece design is finished in brushed, stainless steel which gives it a wonderful modern look.
The AS-D2S razor is exactly the same as the AS-D2 razor, but it includes the matching machine-tooled Feather razor stand which is not sold separately by Feather.
The AS-D2S Razor:
Handle diameter 11.1mm
handle length: 92mm
Made in Japan by the Feather Safety Razor Co. Ltd.
The knurled handle has a nice deep knurl to ensure a firm grip.
The face has 'FEATHER ALL STAINLESS RAZOR' etch washed into the face.
Internally the top plate has raised corners that the blade sits in, the demanding tolerances Feather use ensures the blade sits exactly bang on centre to give an even blade exposure on either side of the cutting head.
The Razor Stand:
The Stand for the Feather AS-D2S Safety Razor is minimalist, elegant and very functional.
Handmade in Japan from the finest steel hence its expensive price tag.
The optimum shaving angle needed for the Feather is around 45° to the face compared to most DE razors which vary from 15-30 degrees. The AS-D2 works best with Feather Razor Blades as this combination has an extremely sharp blade set in a non-aggressive razor leading to less irritation, razor burn and razor bumps.
How to Use:
Ensure the face is well lubricated using a pre shave treatment and a shaving soap, cream or gel.
Shave with the razor at a 45° angle to your face using a sharp blade.
Stretch your skin as you shave ensuring the area you are shaving is pulled tight.
We recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.
