RAZOR OF EXCELLENT QUALITY
Posted by Marco on 22nd Aug 2018
Razor of excellent workmanship, the blades are of excellent quality, the shaving is perfect.
An excellent quality product well worth the investment!

Like many others I was reluctant at spending this much for a razor but I do not regret it one bit. This razor is very smooth shaving and well balanced. Excellent quality finish and sits well in the holder. I have not nicked myself once (a regular occurrence with my EJ Chatswroth!) and able to smoothly deal with my cleft chin. I use Feather blades which are a great combination for me for a BBS. Come to think of it, I have not had razor burn or ingrown hairs since I started using this shaver! I actually look forward and enjoy shaving now.
A razor for life

A great product, very beautiful that only a Japanese can craft.
Along with a yellow feather razor, you will enjoy a close shave.
good good service

Just one word brilliant product
Posted by Derek casey on 14th Nov 2016
A great piece of Japanese workmanship and a great shave. Took a while to get used to new angle, on my 9th shave before I felt I was getting it right with each shave getting better so stick with it , I'm only using feather blades. Delivery was within 2 days of ordering a great service from Shaving.ie . Would highly recommend them.

Perfect! Fast delivery and excellent pricing. Best I've found.
Japanese craftmanship at its best

I love this razoer. Used Gilette before, bought a straight Japanese razor, but hat problems with shaving and honing it correctly. Therefore I wanted something easier. The Feather razor is so easy to handle yet very sharp, but with awesome results even for sensitive skin. And even having spent that much money – the razors are so inexpensive that this razor will save me money for sure after 1 year of usage. Goodby Gilette!
I would buy it again. Especially as it looks really good. Shipping was also super fast and without problems.

I was a bit scared of putting so much money in a razor but I can say that the precision of this thing is just insane. You don't even feel it is shaving ! I have a very sensitive skin and the smoothness of the AS-D2S is just what I needed. Weight nicely balanced, and overall a great investment that I will transmit to at least one more generation after me :)

No doubt this is an expensive double edged razor - especially in the black wood trimmed version I recently purchased. One might well balk at paying a substantial premium for the 'blackwood' trim, but make no mistake -- this is pretty much the perfect DE razor. Perfect balance, perfect scale and contours and above all, with a feather blade on board, the ultimate close shave. This is my first go with Feather, and the effortlessness and smoothness of these blades is astounding. You feel virtually no resistance, and thus wonder whether you are, indeed, accomplishing the task of taking your whiskers down to the skin. Yes, you certainly are, and without irritation of any kind.

Outstanding razor. Definitely in a league of its own.
Posted by Mark on 27th May 2015
This is an Excellent Razor. It is very mild so good for sensitive skin. I have rough whiskers and sensitive skin so takes a couple of passes but that could also be the learning curve associated with this razor. Beautiful to look at it will look great in any bathroom. The only problem that i have with it is it is mild enough for my girlfriend to learn to shave with it and it will go missing
The smoothest shave with DE Razor
Posted by Vadavarot on 5th May 2015
I have to say my expectations were running high before I purchased this razor. But when it reached to me and I was able to behold its perfect finish and had a shave with it... Man, I fell in love. It gave me my smoothest DE razor shaving. Win for Japan.
Posted by Andrei on 22nd Apr 2015
Cannot use any of my other shavers, I`m in love with this one. From design to weight, to detail, to comfort and efficiency it`s simply perfect for my taste. It made me shave daily, which I never did before, even if I wanted to, because of the razor burn. I use it with Feather blades.
Posted by West Scot on 21st Apr 2015
Quality and a good weight, gives an excellent shave. Now my go to DE razor and I have a few. Not cheap, but best price on Shaving.ie, when I bought.
The best safety razor
Posted by Matti on 26th Aug 2014
This is superb safety razor. My alum block does not sting at all after shaving with this as-d2s (using feather blades also). This razor really competes with my Japanese straight razor. BBS shave every time. Quite heavy compared to my other old safety razor. Very fast delivery to Finland. Will surely order again from shaving.ie.
Delighted with this razor
Posted by Mark on 20th Aug 2014
I'm a 48 year old man who has only converted to DE shaving in the last 5 years. I have sensitive and easily irritated skin and don't really feel I need to shave every day. However when I have to I found that a number of the razors that I had used such as DE89,Futur,Bakelite were a bit too aggressive for me or perhaps my technique was not up to scratch. I have looked at the reviews of the feather numerous time and wondered could it really be worth the considerable expense? Finally took the plunge to purchase and after using it for a few weeks, I can honestly say that shaving has turned from something I dreaded to something I enjoy. This razor is mild enough to give me the results I want without the awful razor burn I have experienced in the past (of course I understand that my technique and preparation are important and perhaps I still have some way to go in learning how to shave perfectly.) However after a few weeks of using the Feather AS-D2 I now see I should have taken the plunge much earlier. So it gets my thumbs up for my skin type, sensitive, easily irritated and growth type, wiry but not very heavy.
Superb razor, very mild and efficient, for sure that best I used
Posted by Jose on 28th Mar 2014
A razor with a fantastic production quality, details and finishes are the best I've seen and moreover is very beautiful. I have a very sensitive skin so I had big expectations on this razor. Needs a very sharp blade (such as a Feather) but shaving is fantastic. It has an impressive smoothness, the blade seems to glide without touching the skin and and produces a very close shave causing no irritation. The only drawback is that it doesn't exploits a blade completely. I shaved 4 times with the Feather blade in the Feather razor and 4 times in my Merkur Progress.
Once the angle is right...you'll never shave with anything else again
Posted by Mark on 23rd Feb 2014
I had been using a Muhle R89 G with a mixture of razors and love the feel of the shave from the razor. I wanted something a bit heavier so went for the plunge and bought the Feather AS-D2S. The reviews I read were generally glowing about this razor, so I was eager to try it. I was probably a bit too eager the first couple of times I tried it. However, I paid more attention to how I was using it and realised the angle of the head was wrong. It is slightly different to that of the Muhle R89. Once I figured out the correct angle, it has provided me with the smoothest of shaves in less passes. A marvel really. My skin does not get irritated, even when using Feather blades. A truly magnificent shave. It is now my go-to razor. I highly recommend the Feather AS-D2S if you are striving for that BBS. A big thanks to Chris as well for his superb customer service and speed at dispatching orders.
Very mild and efficient for face and head-shave
Posted by Dennis on 16th Dec 2013
I have tried 11 DE-razors within the last two years (incl. PILS, R89, R41 and AS-D1), but have never been happy with the shaving itself and/or the results. So I regularly got back to my cartridge razor.
I wanted to give a last try to the new Feather AS-D2, and it really does the work! It's as mild as the AS-D1, but gives a very close shave. And it is also possible to get a close and smooth head-shave (for those, who chose this kind of "hairstyle") without any nicks. The shave-angle is easy to find and to hold, even for me after months of mixing cartridges and DE! I highly recommend this razor and also Chris and his shop, GREAT!
Feather - the best razor I've ever used
Posted by stantony on 7th Dec 2013
Baby smooth shaves after only seven days. Get the angle right and it shaves closer by far than any of my other razors, with no irritation, nicks, or weepers. As easy to use as a mach 3, thank you Shaving.ie
