PRESENTATION The Feather AS-D2 razor & stand are beautifully presented in a padded burgundy red box. Not as ‘artisan’ looking as the AS-D1, which came in a wooden box, however this is a joy to open. ENGINEERING Both the razor & stand are engineering masterpieces. The AS-D2 is perfectly balanced with prominent but very comfortable knurling on the handle. It’s almost effortless to hold & feels like a cross between a work of art & a precision medical instrument that oozes quality. THE SHAVE I’ve read reviews & seen YouTube videos where the AS-D2 is described as a mild/very mild shaver with virtually no feedback through the handle. I disagree. Once you learn the correct shave angle, which I found in about 3 strokes, it is an extremely efficient razor, so you can’t feel the hairs being cut but you can hear them being effortlessly sliced. Yes it does feel very mild, even with the notoriously sharp Feather blades provided, but the efficiency & balance gives an incredibly close shave, my closest ever, even on the first shave, with absolutely no nicks, cuts, shave rash or irritation. This is a razor that rewrites the rules of mild v aggressive. You don’t need an aggressive razor to shave a 5 day stubble of an Italian American, you need an efficient one.

I have always wanted a Feather and Christmas was the perfect opportunity for my wife to buy this for me. It is totally flawless, the packaging, the numbered guarantee and the actual razor is in terms of quality as good as any razor can be. The shave as expected was as mild and close as the reviewers on Badger & Blade had reported. If you can afford one, buy one, if you can't afford one - take out a loan. John Young
I agree with every word written by the two previous reviewers. I can find no faults of any description with this masterpiece of Japanese engineering and design. This is the ONLY razor you will ever have to buy.
OK, Yes it's a very expensive razor. Mine arrived the other day, and im absolutely delighted with it. Had my first have with it today and it shaves beautifully. My first shave resulted in a very close shave with no nicks or cuts at all. Ive no experience using a double edge razor having been a straight razor user for a while now. I had no problems with the different shave angle you are supposed to use as I find I shave by the sound more than anything. For me I often gauge if a thing is worth the money by asking myself if It were lost would I by another one? And in this case I certainly wouldn't hesitate in buying the same razor again. Andy
The razor is a joy to use, beautifully crafted and engineered. If you want a razor made to last a lifetime this is the one.
