Aaron is asked a question about the differences between the Feather AS-D1 and AS-D2

Scott Allread, from the UK, asks:

“What is the difference between the Feather AS-D1 and AS-D2?”

Feather AS-D2 Double-Edge Razor (Stainless Steel)
Feather AS-D2 Double-Edge Razor (Stainless Steel)


“Mr. Allread,

After doing some research here is what I was able to find on the variances between the AS-D1 and AS-D2. The D1 is the first model of the Feather to come out. It is regarded as an extremely mild shaving razor, with some complaints of it being too mild and some people having a hard time shaving with it, where as others rave about it. So, there seems to be some variances there. However, the fact remains that the D1 is a very gentle razor. The D2 is the second incarnation of the Feather All Stainless, with most folks agreeing that it shaves much better than the D1, not being as mild. There are also some slight physical differences in the handle and in the base. Thanks for the great question!

Smooth shaving!
