View Full Version : Is there a difference between these razors?
1) Edwin Jagger DE razor - Chrome plated
2) Edwin Jagger DE razor - Lined Chrome plated
and what is the difference other than one says lined ?
What does lined mean and how does it affect the shave ?
They have a different price so I guess they are different.
and I am thinking that this one
3) Edwin Jagger DE razor - Black
is similar to #1 above only with a black handle.
And is there a link to figuring out what the various codes mean on the Jaggers, Muhle, and Merkur ?
Curses, this is becoming an addiction to me.

As far as I know, all those Jaggers have the same head. The difference is in the handle. I have the Jagger EJ87 in the ivory style and the same head. My favourite razor!
As far as I know the lined DE89L version means that the handle is textured/lined as opposed to the regular DE89 which is smooth handled.

Correct. They share the same head, they are "clones" only with a a different head.
See this post (http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showpost.php?p=2215216&postcount=16). All EJ and some Mühle razors share the same heads, the only difference is the handle.
Edwin Jagger DE86 has an ebony black resin handle.
Edwin Jagger DE87 has an ivory white resin handle
Edwin Jagger DE89 has a chrome plated slick handle.
Edwin Jagger DE89L has a chrome plated handle with extruded lines.
Mühle R89 has a nice chrome handle with an extremely fine engraved finish.
Mühle R106 features a polished black handle.
All of these razors share the same head, the only thing that is different is the handle. They are "clones" with different handles.
I have the Mühle R89... and it is my favourite razor!

Has anybody compared the two black-handled razors (EJ DE86 vs Muhle R106)? Is there a different feel or heft to the handle, or is the slightly different design of the chrome sections of the handle the only difference?

I think that Mühle R89 has a better grip, because of the texture of the handle... And I think that it is better looking too! But YMMV :)
The slick handle ones may have a less better grip. Besides that, I think they are all the same, aesthetics aside.
