Edwin Jagger 'Extra Long' Handle DE Safety Razor, Lined Chrome
This is the 2nd DE razor I bought. First was the Merkur 23C long handle. I see no difference between the two, and neither gives as close a shave as I thought I would get from a DE, based on many descriptions of the superiority of the DE compared to the multi-bladed cartridge razor (Gillette Fusion, Gillette Sensor, etc.). I use a Feather blade, a brush, and Proraso shaving cream. I do the following 3 times: lather, shave, rinse. My Gillette Sensor Excel gave a closer shave. Not buying any more DE razors, but will continue to use the DE, hoping to get better with it.
Love the razor! I also have a Merkur 23C and find this one to be more aggressive. For example I use Feather blades in the 23C and get a good shave. I shave with Astra Platinums in the DE89 and get a great shave. Feather blade tear me up with the DE89. HAHA! I recommend it unless you have very sensitive skin. But I don't think its overly aggressive.

Great razor all around. Size, build, finish, feel & shave. A winner.
Great Razor, Love the Handle
There is nothing that I do not like about this razor. It was my second DE and and a quick upgrade from my first. It shaves close and was a perfect beginning DE. I didn't pay attention to the fact that the "L" referred to the length and not the lined. I really appreciate the lined look and feel. A quick rinse under running water between strokes gives a superior grip to this tool. I have had great shaves with a variety of blades.

I purchased the EJ89 lined long handle from another shaving supply co. I have used this razor for one year, and have been so pleased with it's quality and the SHAVE. It is the most comfortable shaver that I own. Just as your write up at the top of the page, it describes these razors perfectly. I have ordered a number of your products an have never been disappointed. thanks again
