I own these DE's:
1. Feather AS-1 DE - thought I had sold it, but he never picked it up. I'll be keeping it for a while, even though it ONLY works on my beard, when it's not longer than maximum 1 1/2 days growth
2. M;ühle R41 Grande - Very nice aggressive razor, will also keep it since none seemed interested in paying me what I thought was fair. Really like its aggressiveness - and shaving with it made me decide to buy the Feather Artist Club SS in the Non folding version
3. Mühle Sophist R106 Black Resin - marvellous lookng razor. It has the mild R89 head. Put a Feather blade in this and it gives me a very nice shave each and every time
4. On its way to me is a Pils DE razor - should be here next week or so.....
So I consider adding one with an aggressiveness factor in between the mild Mühle Sophist R106 and the Mühle R41 Grande - but I also want an impressive looking DE razor, so what to get ?
I've considered the Edwin Jagger Chatsworth Barley DE razor, but have heard it has the same head as my Mühle Sophist R106, but it just looks so nice that I may just have to own the Chatsworth Barley anyway, am I crazy or just a suffering from a case of RAD
It looks sooo nice:
For some reason Merkur razors are just not for me - I've heard and read about quality issues, maybe I need to try a Merkur as my next DE razor, but I'd rather avoid them all together......
Ikon DE razors have also been on my list, but also read and heard about quality issues with this brand, so not sure I'll get them in my den either......
I really like Mühle razors - their design is top notch.
I have been very very close several times to get the Mühle Stylo DE razor in Thuja wood, because I love how it looks, but it has the same head I already own, so not sure - but it just looks so darn nice:
I'm very close to getting both the Mühle Stylo DE in Thuja wood and the Edwin Jagger Chatsworth Barley because these two razors are among the best looking DE razors I've ever seen and I think it would a joy to have them in my small but growing DE razor collection
But what would you recommend me to look at ?
I have a bit ca$h to spend on DE gear this month
Thanks for helping me with advice !
