The Feather Standard Blades R-Type is a revolutionary new blade that has 40% more blade exposure for rapid cuts! With less guard it allows the blade to more quickly glide through the hair with minimal resistance. While our already popular Standard Blades glide across the hair already, this new blade is even faster. If you crave doing faster haircuts, then this blade is for you! Combine this with our Jatai Blade Glide and you've got the smoothest razor cut possible. You can think of it as a step closer to the Feather Plier Razor (unguarded razor blade). You get more freedom while cutting like the Plier but still maintain safety with a guard.
