Nick Shabbazz is in love with the Feather AS-D2. No one says anything bad about it. Some few think they want something more aggressive, but most love it.I have not tried one, but it is high on my list of must own razors. One I am sure you'd like is a Henson. They make aluminum and titanium razors. The tolerances are tight, very tight. https://hensonshaving.com/
Hey, that's great! If your face is like mine I predict you will love those Feather blades in your DE89. The Persona and Astra will be nice, too. The Voshkod is milder so I like them in other razors, but too mild for the already mild DE89 for me. I don't like aggressive and harsh razors, so you have to understand that. I really love my DE89. It is just right for me.
Here you go. Having 36 hours of beard, I tried the Gillette Slim set on 4 and it simply didn't cut through. So I upped the razor to 5 and 6. Most of the shave was adequate, but for two things. 1] The shave was overall not as smooth as I like, and often on the harsh side. I was using a Feather blade, so going to a milder blade would probably help. I will do that next time. Most of the shave was fairly efficient at cutting down my beard except 2] there was an area on my neck and jaw that simply wouldn't shave down and I was getting some irritation from trying to mow it down. So, I switched to my Henson Ti for that part and that finished the shave off nicely.
