Received my new Edwin Jagger De89lbl (the one with the lined handle) today. My first impression was that this thing has better fit and finish than any razor should have, especially considering how much it costs. Seriously, I didn't want to shave with it; I just wanted to handle and admire it!
I'm glad I did shave with it. It's pretty non-aggressive, extremely well-balanced, and the handle is just the right length for my hands. I'll have to get used to the head shape- it's slightly different from my Merkur Classics- and maybe try a variety of blades. As usual, I'm not as careful with the angle as I should be.
Who cares. The thing is drop-dead gorgeous (if you like perfect chrome jobs) and works beautifully.
Money well spent! Highly recommended!
