Love the razor. The weight is perfect. Not thrilled with my choice of blade. The feather wasn’t close enough for my liking. Have to try a different blade.
Fabulous Safety Razor!
The new EDWIN JAGGER DE89BA11 Barley Chrome-Plated Safety razor is beautifully made. The modern shave head (made in Germany by MUHLE for EDWIN JAGGER) is very good. It provides you with a smooth and nick free shave every time. I really like the barley chrome version more than my MERKUR 25C because the EDWIN JAGGER features a thicker handle and also looks nicer with the handsome knob on the end of the barrel. This is a really nice safety razor that you will love to own.
Was amazing until it broke!
I bought the Edwin Jagger razor about 3 years ago and have used it non stop since. This week the razor head broke where it screws into the handle. My razor never sat in water, was never dropped, and was always cleaned and maintained. I'm not sure if I could have done anything different to prevent this, it just snapped right off. I loved this razor and am pretty upset I cannot even by a replacement head for my handle and have to buy a new one entirely. I assumed the high price would equal in quality. I will definitely be buying from a different company for my next razor. Hopefully it will actually last a lifetime.
Better than my Merkur 29 Long Handle
Great quality construction. Has good weight to it that gives me a better shave as opposed to my lighter weight merkur29c. Shipping was extremely fast! Love WCS and this razor!
Your search for a great razor stops here! Look no further and buy this one! I am new to DE razors. After much research (probably too much), I opted for the DE89BA11. I have been using it for two months and haven't regretted my choice. The handle provides a secure grip and the balance overall is excellent. I also purchased a sample pack of 16 different blades. My favorites are Feather and Trig. In combination with the razor, I get a very close and safe shave. You won't regret buying this razor!
