Closed comb style razors are the most popular type of double edge safety razor on the market. Closed comb refers to the fact the safety bar, aside from potentially having small grooves running along it, is relatively straight. This feature offers what is referred to as a ‘mild’ shave, one that restricts blade exposure but still offers a close and precise shave. The milder shave achieved makes it the perfect choice for those new to using a DE and the go-to for daily shaving for new and experienced shavers alike.
This double edge safety razor is fitted with the classic Edwin Jagger DE Head, which has been popular amongst the wet shaving community for many years. The closed comb head is expertly engineered and finished with a high-quality chrome plate. It has an excellent reputation for the expert level of shaving it achieves.
The classic Edwin Jagger closed comb razor head is praised for being an excellent choice for those trying traditional shaving for the first time, whilst remaining a firm favourite of those who are more experienced.
This product includes one free Feather Hi-Stainless DE Safety Razor Blade to get you started. Feather Blades are the preferred pairing recommended by Edwin Jagger as the sharpness of the blade paired with the head offers a comfortable, clean shave. All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and therefore any DE blades you purchase will be compatible with this razor.
The handle is finished with an attractive smooth imitation ivory acrylic coating, giving it an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
All Edwin Jagger products are finished off with a thorough quality check and packed securely in attractive Edwin Jagger packaging, allowing for safe and secure delivery.
- No surprises here, it is very good
Already had a DE89 so didnt really need this and bought it on appearance. Not a noticeable difference except handle length and the colour of the handle. It is slightly more comfortable for me than the 89 and it looks and shaves wonderfully well as I would expect from an EJ razor. I even used the accompanying Feather blades [first time using them] and was reallly surprised to be getting an incredibly smooth shave but one that was also more than sharp. Very pleased with this and it does look great.

- Handle length an issue
I found the description as long handled a bit misleading as it's the same length as my other razor, not the same make.
