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.
The Muhle R89 Rose Gold DE Safety Razor (Closed Comb) offers an incredibly precise, close shave with a long-lasting result. The handle has a beautiful rose gold chrome finish, adding a touch of luxury to Muhle’s classic razor design. The chrome plating is corrosion-resistant and offers incomparable quality and longevity. For the classic design, try the Muhle R89 Chrome DE Razor (Closed Comb).
The handle features engraved knurling, offering enhanced wet grip and adding to the attractive design of the product.
One rust-proof MÜHLE Stainless Steel Razor Blade is included with this purchase to get you started. The blades can be recycled after use, making this product a popular choice for those looking for a waste free method of shaving. All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and therefore any DE blades you purchase will be compatible with this razor.
As with all Muhle products, the R89 Rose Gold razor is packaged in smart, contemporary Muhle branded packaging and comes with instructions on how to use the razor.
Muhle razors turn an everyday ritual into a daily design experience.
- Exceptional and Beautiful
I'm female, and was a bit scared of switching to a safety razor, but it's been far better than I thought. You have to take slightly more care, but you get used to it. I shave my underarms and legs with it and it's fine (I don't bother with bikini area since buying swimming leggings!) I think I've cut myself less with this than with my old plastic razor. And it's so beautiful, like a piece of jewellery. I've had mine six months and it still looks like new. It makes me feel happy every time I use it, and proud that I made such a great decision for myself and the planet.
There was no plastic packaging with the razor itself, although there were a few polystyrene packing peanuts that English Shaving Company had reused, which is fair enough. Full disclosure, I haven't replaced the blade in the razor yet - I'm intending to now, but I thought I'd see how long I could get out of it rather than working to some sort of schedule. I use it more or less every other day, so the whole thing looks like excellent value so far. My tip would be to make sure the blade is screwed tight on the handle each time before you start shaving as it can loosen slightly over time and then turn around unexpectedly when you're using it.
I'm intending to buy the Edwin Jagger small razor stand at some point, which I believe is the right size for this and is also rather attractive, so the whole thing will be like a little work of art in my bathroom.
There are few things you can buy that are simultaneously so useful and gorgeous and eco friendly, so rather than spending your money on plastic tat, go on, treat yourself!

- Great quality, taking a while to get used to
This is a lovely razor for women looking to ditch reusable plastic razors for their legs. It’s well made and has clear instructions for use and care. It’s taking me a while to get used to using it around my shins and knees as there’s no cushioning but it works perfectly well. Would highly recommend.

- Muhle R89 Rose Gold - shaving perfection!
This is my first time ordering from English Shaving Co. I've had my eye on the Muhle R89 razor in rose gold finish for a long time now (several years) but it's always been super expensive on all of the online sites in the states. I saw it advertised by you guys for 30 pounds - less than half of most other sites in the states! I ordered it immediately, and I'm so glad that I did! Even though I'm in California, I received it with your normal international shipping (super cheap! $2.50 or so! unbelievable!) and it made it to me in 7 CALENDAR days!!! (not business days). I was blown away by that! THEN - I unpackaged it and used it - wow! met my every expectation and then some! what a great razor! shaves very much like my Merkur 34C but just a touch more aggressive. Super smooth, close shave - and NO NICKS OR CUTS! THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! I will be a regular customer of yours from now on. You guys provide an awesome service, and the quick shipping is amazing! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
