I own several Edwin Jagger razors and have purchased many as gifts. This purchase was a gift and the new owner loves it.
Excellent Starter Razor
This is the first safety razor I bought when my interest was piqued in wet shaving. It handles well, gets a great shave, and represents an excellent value for the money. In addition, it is made in England, and its quality is apparent from the second you hold it in your hand. I would not hesitate to recommend this razor to anybody.
this is a great shave! Second most fun thing to do in the bathroom!
A very good razor for the price.
I would give it five stars, but, it's just slightly too aggressive for my skin type. Also, mine got stripped after just over a year's worth of use. However, I think that was my fault. Anyway, it's a great razor from a great company. It's good for beginners, and veteran wet shavers alike. Just be sure you like the angle at which it's set, and, remember to let the weight of the razor do all of the work. Don't push in, or, you could definitely damage your face. I've decided I like TTO's better, so, I've got one of those now. But, this is a great razor.
This is not my "Go To Razor" but it is a nice addition to my rotation! I have the chrome plated one by EJ and it slips badly even though my hands are seldom "that wet"! This however has not given me this issue at all! I realize we are all a little different, but honestly I just do not have the issue with this razor. And while it is not real heavy (which I do prefer) it is moderately weighted and does a good job leaving me cleanly shaved with the added bonus of using very good blades! I have often used the "Feather" blade in both the black packs and Yellow packs with it, and have had great outcomes. I would however suggest trying the Sliver Blue's with this baby too! I find that I never go wrong using a Silver Blue, and found that it did the job just right for me in this great little moderately weighted razor! I would highly recommend this as a second or third razor, not the primary but yes, a good one for rotations!
