    If I have a razor that takes feather artist club blades are there any other brands I can use or do I have to use feather blades? IE for a cjb kamisori which is a clone of the feather.

    You can use Feather blades, KAI blades, Schick blades, and a brand called 'Kamisori'. All these are made in Japan and are what we call "AC type SE blades".

    Feather and KAI have a few different models of blades in their lineup.

    Schick Proline P-30 blades are fantastic. Bear in mind, they don't feature the 'key' to insert into your razor.

    When I bought the Feather DX clone 6" Univinlions it came with a blade. I haven't used it yet but some reports are very favourable. At the price it might be worth a punt to buy a stash of 10/50 or 100
    Some sellers won't do the blades only but a search will find one who will. But the razor itself is so cheap, both straight and folding versions, that it is no great hardship to get the package.

    Thanks I'm looking for one of the folding versions that use as type but only ones I have seen cost to much for me to be able to buy right now and the only one that didn't cost alot doesn't ship to USA. Also they didn't take Paypal..

    Ok, all I can say is that when I bought - possibly from the link provided though not certain - shipping to the UK was very quick and cheap. Also I used PayPal.

    I didn't bother with the blades, mainly to keep the value below the tax and customs duty threshold. My observation is that Aliexpress sellers can vary in prices and conditions of sale. So a comparison may produce a result that suits. Good luck.

    All the ones I saw either didn't ship to USA or wouldn't take PayPal. I will keep looking.
