More Information

This classic safety razor by Edwin Jagger has an exquisite barley patterned handle in a chrome-plated finish. The neck of the razor is emblazoned with the Edwin Jagger brand. The shaving head is outfitted with a precision closed comb with a classic straight guard to help you avoid irritation, for a perfect shave.

Compatible with all standard double-edge blades (Merkur, Derby, Feather, etc). The experience of our customers who are new to wet shaving is that purchasing a razor blade sampler alongside their first DE razor is the best way to figure out which blade brand is best suited to their skin type, style of shaving and razor type, before making a purchase of a large quantity of blades.

    Great started DE razor!

    Posted by Chris Cerrudo on 3rd Jul 2020

    Based on recommendations, have this as my first DE razor + sample blades. Good weight, easy first shave. No irritation afterwards, unlike w/ my disposables!

    A beautiful razor. I use this with a polsilver blade and shaves great. This is my second DE razor and will be using it for a long time. This is very mild on my irritation prone skin. A 2 pass shave with this leaves me mostly stubble free. A third pass leaves my neck and jaw line irritated. The knurling on the handle is subtle but i don't find it hard to hold or slippery. Lather and hair is easily rinsed out with a little water. Very happy with this razor.

    Very pleased

    Posted by Mike1962 on 23rd Jun 2016

    I've been using a Merkur 23c which I really liked, but this one seems even better and it's workmanship is nicer. Very easy to handle and excellent shaves. I used Derby Extra blades the first few times and they were just right for me-not a single nick. Then, I made what turned out to be a mistake and tried a Feather-it was too sharp and aggressive for me. It butchered my face, a lot of nicks. So, it's back to Derby and I think that's where I'll stay!

    Very good for sensitive skin

    Posted by Unknown on 16th May 2016

    It takes some getting use too and requires more skill in using it, as opposed to the traditional raisers that are used today. But once you get the hang of it, the safety raiser is a very efficient tool that does not leave any cuts or raiser burns when shaving. I find that I am breaking out less and less due to using only one blade and not 3 to 5 blades, that I believed was causing the breakouts.

    Head screw broke before I got to use it

    Posted by Robert on 3rd Mar 2016

    After taking the razor out of the box, I unscrewed the head to place a blade inside. The screw broke off before I even got a chance to use the razor. It appears to me that the alloy used in making the screw is not strong enough and should not be used in making a man's shaving razor. It should be able to withstand the rigors of shaving... pulling, twisting, or even being dropped in the sink, A $50.00 razor should last a lifetime.

    I will be returning this razor broken...and still unused.

    Good razor

    Good weight and does what it needs to do. I wish the website would list all of the "starter" razors together so people have a better idea of what to first buy.

    First DE Razor

    Posted by Dave G. on 2nd Apr 2014

    I'm 50+ and this is my first DE Razor. I did a lot of research online and the Jagger DE89 kept coming up as a very good entry level razor. Since I live in Phoenix I decided to check it out in person.
    I compared 3 razors WSP , DE 89, IKON Shavecraft 101. I'm glad I was able to hold each one and compare side by side.
    After asking questions, taking them apart, putting a blade in each of them etc. I settled on DE89. Fit, finish and feel is top notch. The weight was noticeable - heavier than the WSP but not has heavy as the IKON. Price was in between the other two.
    After using it for a week, I found the handle to be slippery. My solution was to use shrink tubing on the handle. That got rid of the slippery and allowed me to use a looser grip to let the weight of the razor do the work. I am now very satisfied with my DE89.
    I get a better shave with the DE89 than with a cartridge or disposable. However, I spend a lot more time prep'ing, lathering and shaving passes
    I'm having a ball refining my technique, using different blades, soaps, brush combinations.
    I look forward to shaving each morning where before it was a non-event, get 'er done chore.

    Excellent razor with just the right weight

    Posted by Ger on 6th Mar 2014

    Having tried the Merkur 34C HD already and being impressed with the closeness of the have I was even more interested in trying out the Edwin Jagger. It really impressed, its lighter than the 34C and gives a close shave but I would recommend you try out other blades than the Derby's that come provided. They can be very unforgiving if you have sensitive skin, I'd recommend you find a blade that suits you. The blades I used were the Polsilver Super Iridium. Overall I'd recommend this razor as its very well put together and feels nice in the hand.
