Best DE Blades for Safety Razors: Feather Hi-Stainless
I recently had a double edged razor blade dilemma, but it all worked out nicely once I recommitted to the best dang DE blades on the market.
I had a big stock of a variety of different double edged razor blades at one point, which left me feeling secure with my safety razor supplies. And then one day, I opened the cabinet and found that I only had one blade left. Oops.
So I stopped in at my local grocery store to pick up some more, only to find that they stock all manner of multi-blade razor cartridges, but no DE blades. I was in the neighborhood of WalMart, so I cruised their shaving products, but again, they didn't stock any DE blades. Evidently hardly anyone buys them anymore (at least in my area).
Finally, I made a trip to the drugstore, and hiding amid all of the many cartridge razors, I found one package of generic blades. Feeling a little whiskery, I bought them, thinking that I could get by with this package.
Yes, I could, if I wanted to only shave with them once, and then only with much pulling of facial hair... I held out for another couple of days, but then decided that I absolutely needed some DE blades that shaved like I wanted them to. No more half-assed shaves with generic blades for this guy...
Enter Feather brand double edged razor blades. I ordered up a 50 count package of Feather blades from Amazon, and within 3 days I was in front of the mirror with a fresh, sharp DE blade in my safety razor. What a relief.
That shave was nothing short of amazing. How could I forget the excellent shaving experience that Feather blades provide? How could I ever run out of these again?
Feather razor blades are exceptionally sharp, long lasting (a week of shaves), and well worth the money. They cut through a week's worth of stubble like a hot knife through butter, and kept on keeping me smooth every morning of that week. In my opinion, the Feather DE blades are the best razor blades on the planet, and I'm committing to keeping an extra box on hand now.
Because life's too short to shave with a shitty razor blade.
What's your favorite DE safety razor blade?
