    Feather DE razor blades are not widely available, despite their superior performance.

    Regarding technology, I'm not so sure - my Feather All Stainless razor (not the blades, the razor) is a work of art, and I'm not sure anyone married the steel technology to the razor design itself 50 years ago. (It is the Hattori Hanzo sword of razors - it is the finest razor ever made by a man.)

    But you're spot on - it's telling to me that the only way these Gillette idiots stay in business is by massive advertising that's largely false.

    AND in developing countries, they're trying to destroy the DE razor market by putting in those environmentally hostile disposable atrocities.
