My favorite razor
This is the third Jagger razor I have purchased and is my favorite. I love the head of the Jaggers. The angle is comfortable and I get a very close shave. The handles tend to be eye-catching with their chromed look. Truly beautiful razors....but grip can be iffy! This handle is perfectly balanced with the head and can be solidly gripped with even soapy hands. The razor is solidly made and gives an incredibly close shave.
Better Late Than Never
It took ten days to receive items which were shipped from Maryland.
I don't hand out stars lightly.
Only the absolute perfect item will receive 5 stars from me. The four star rating on this beautiful razor should be considered a significant statement about its value. The handle is goregeous and provides excellent grip without being abrasive. The head is wonderfully designed and hold the blade in the most perfect way. It's easy to find the right cutting angle and prevents nicks and cuts well. It also does a great job on my head which I shave daily. The one thing preventing a five star rating is the handle weight. I would prefer a bit more weight in the handle to balance out the weight in the head.
What a great intro back to safety razors!
I got this razor a few days ago - it's a tad shorter and a tad heavier than what my father used to teach me to shave. I stopped using a safety razor when the blades became so difficult to find. Years of switching from cartridges to electrics has brought me full circle - I'm back to a safety razor! Not only does it provide a great shave when I do my part, it looks great and built like a tank! I highly recommend Edwin Jagger!
