Author: D King I bought this razor as my first dive into DE shaving. A great mild razor at a great price and a good looking piece of kit too. Highly recommended.
Author: MisterG After decades of multibladed razors I went old school. So glad I did! My first shave went really well... only a few nicks, and I'd get that anyway. The razor (with a new Feather blade) was a joy to use. The only reason I'm not giving it full marks is I dropped it! The handle is very smooth (Read "slippery when wet"!)
Author: James Rayner Can highly recommend this razor to anyone looking to start DE shaving. It looks superb, the pictures don't do it justice. Highly crafted work of art which is weighted beautifully in the hand. Had the best shave ever, so easy to use, will never use a disposable razor again!
Author: Ed S All that has been written about this razor is true. It’s a beautifully made piece of art and it looks stunning in my bathroom. The handle is a good size and it’s very easy to use. The quality of the shave I got was amazing. It takes a bit of getting use to if you’re coming from a multi blade cartridge but perceiver as you will be rewarded with a much better shave.
For the money, this thing is a bargain. Get it now!
Author: Paul Tiernan Excellent quality and value for money. Recommend the lined chrome finish as I could imagine the smooth chrome being quite slippy when wet. No need to spend more.
Author: Graeme Fraser Beautifully made razor with stunning chrome finish. When you hold this razor in your hand for the first time, you are left in no doubt that this is a high quality item and a fabulous addition to any bathroom. The pin stripe within the chrome is very elegant and adds just that little extra grip. It also shaves as good as it looks and given the cost, is absolutely fabulous value for money. Get off the cartridge razor merry-go-round and into real shaving with this stunning piece of British engineering!
Author: Philip Parkes This is my first DE razor the only thing I regret is not doing this sooner. The razor feels nice in the hand and with the Derby blade I have had the best shaves ever. If your thinking about making the change do it you won't look back.
Author: Richard Absolutely one of the best razors to start with. Well crafted, Excellent price! This Edwin Jagger is worth every penny. Don't try to start with a vintage razor. This piece of art is cheap enough to give DE shaving a try without a high starting price.
For experienced shavers, it's a good all-day razor! Not to mild, but absolutely NOT aggressive.
During my use, I prefer some more aggressiveness, but it's one of my favorites.
Now I use more often my R41 Grande & 39C, my wive uses this Razor for her experimentation with DE shaving with great enthusiasm. Preferred for girls too!
Author: Clive Pepper The quality of this razor is superb, the craftmanship throughout suggests it is something costing many times the price, it makes you proud to be British! It is my first DE razor - wish I'd done it years ago! On my first go, the weight balance and everything about it meant I was comfortable to even shave against the grain with it on my third pass - I watched many videos which I linked from the Shaving Shack website.Truly fantastic, great service from the Shaving Shack, goodbye cartridge razors, hello shaving pleasure! Just do it, you won't regret it!
Author: Iancho Hristov I bought it for Xmass and today i got my first shave with it-:)From 2 months i'm into wet shaving, first i was using Wilkinson Sword plastic safety razror, than i found from my dad and old one safety razror and i always got cuts, i don't know if is from the razor but today i did not get any cuts at all even i went against the grain this time and belivee me this is the closest shave i got until now after the one i got in barbershop when i was in Turkey. It is really great value, in first was a little bit havy for me but i got used to it after 5 minutes and i really loves it!I recommend it for everyone new to wet shaving.
Author: Simon Daniels To begin: The Edwin Jagger DE 89LBL looks very English and racy, perhaps Aston Martin-esque.
This is an exceptionally beautiful item. The chrome is immaculate, the fluting on the handle flawless and the "EDWIN JAGGER" etched on the collar screams quality. Being English however, it screams it quietly. I compared the build quality to a blue Merkur 38141 belonging to a friend and the Jagger was, not much but just, better built.
So, to the shave: the razor was a Christmas present from my wife,having despaired of a five blade Azor as being incapable of shaving anything to any degree of satisfaction. I conducted severe research into DE after 30ish years of cartridge nonsense. The I sold her the idea and waited (patchily shaved) until Christmas - thanks Shaving Shack for delivering.
In my house it s traditional to drink too much so on (late) Christmas morning when I said "Time to shave!" the party was well under way and the assembled throng, I think, expected me to arrive back after an encounter with Freddy Krueger.
So, to the shave, again: the razor felt comfortably heavy in my hand - always an indication of quality, cheap things are light. Fitted the (free) Derby blade and had the best shave I can remember . No soreness (I have very sensitive skin), no missed patches. The Jagger, described as medium aggressive,delivers an excellent shave. It feels very mild to me in terms of not feeling like I have had hairs pulled/ripped from my face.
Overall then this is a superb razor at a remarkable price, far cheaper than Merkur, Bluebeard's Revenge and so on. God bless you Mr Jagger, carry on the good work!
Author: Gary Sheppard Just bought this as my first Double Edge after years of multi blades and I'm so glad I did. It's a very comfortable razor, it feels solidly built and sits nicely in the hand. The shave is smooth and irritation was considerably reduced compared to a cartridge razor when paired with a Wilkinson Sword blade. I would thoroughly recommend this razor to anyone.
Author: John Emerson After using a shavette decided to give DE shaving a go and opted to buy the Edwin Jagger. On opening the box was surprised at how weighty the razor was, but without feeling unwieldy, feels like a quality product. Tried it with a Wilkinson Sword blade that I already have and found the weight of the razor allowed it to gluide over the skin with ease. Found it to be one of the best shaves i've had. Very impressed with the Edwin Jagger and would recommend it.
Author: Harry G Just lovely! This was the first proper DE razor that I bought after trying out a highstreet own-brand and a couple of cheap vintage razors. Frankly I can't see why anyone would want to buy another razor after this. It's got a lovely weight to it and fits nicely in your hand, which allows you to shave confidently. It manages to be mild and yet very effective, my number of nicks dropped to almost zero as soon as I started using it. It looks wondeful too and the chrome is gorgeous. Mine did lose a bit of plating on the cap, but Edwin Jagger replaced this immediately under warranty so top marks for customer service.
I really can't recommend this highly enough, it's the best £22 I've spent in a long time.
Author: Flaviano Brandi My first DE razor: simply stunning. Very well made, easy to use, perfect fitting head. Combined with a sharp blade it gives you a smooth excellent shave with no effort at all. You could even forget you need an aftershave. Highly recommended.
Author: Neil Ord As a new DE shaver, I opted for this after deciding between the DE89L and the similar Merkur 34C - I was not disappointed! You can feel the quality, and the lined version is easy to grip with wet hands. It's short enough to hold comfortably in one hand, but heavy enough that you don't need to apply any pressure to get a good shave. I partnered it with some Derby blades, but have just ordered some Feathers and Israeli blades to try out.
Author: Carl Pearson Decided to try the traditional way of shaving and bought a poor WS DE razor. After a couple of shaves my face felt good so I thought it best to invest in a proper DE, settling on the DE 89L.
It arrived within 3 days and upon opening the package you can see and feel the quality it holds. Teamed up with the Derby blades, I can't see me ever using a multi blade, expensive cartridge, razor again.
Author: Callum Strachan The DE 89L arrived this morning. After years of shaving with a poor multi blade cartridge razor I decided it was time to venture into the world of DE shaving. I'm glad I chose this as my first razor as I have just finished my first shave and it was magical. I would highly recommended this razor to anyone starting out!
Author: Allan Mackay This is my first DE razor and after using it for 3 weeks I can safely say it's the best shave i've had in years. This is a beautiful razor with a decent weight behind it.
Author: Paul Fitzsimons Having been bitten by the DE shaving bug, I decided to try another razor (I already own the Merkur HD 34c) The Edwin Jagger is a well made bit of kit, nice and heavy in the hand and is every bit as good as the Mekur, I would advise any beginners out that to try either.
