I am new to safety razors so it's hard to make a fair call on this model. However I do like the easy butterfly mechanism for opening and replacing razors. In particular the ability to open the razor post shave to help air the razor to help dry. I have had to learn to hold the razor differently so as not to accidently unscrew the razor while shaving. That being said the feather popular is a budget friendly option for a beginner like me.
I got this shaver for travel purposes on a budget. I was pleasantly surprised how close the shave was with no cuts.
Good entry level razor and great price
First time trying wet shaving. Super speedy delivery and very pleased with my purchase. Great first/travel DE Razor with case included. Highly recommend shopping at Fineshave.
Feather Popular DE Safety Razor
I have Merkur 34C and bought the Feather butterfly for travel. I found it gives me a much superior shave compared with the Merkur. When I first opened the box, I thought it felt cheaply made, but I have grown to love the lighter feel and the longer handle. Have not shed a drop of blood in over two weeks. It has become my regular razor and I just bought a second for travel,
This is my first safety razor and it has been great! I’ve had it over a year now and it’s still going strong.
This razor does the job, the only complaint that I have is that the metal parts on the side make it hard to maneuver in sensitive places as they can tug and scratch at the skin.
Gives a close but not too severe shave if you take good time with the prep, but could be too close if you don't. It is light and therefore handy to use, the longer handle gives better control, and seems to work best with (strangely enough) Feather blades. Good general purpose razor likely good for dedicated beginners as well as those of us who have been using the shaving brush for 40+ years.
