I am new to DE shaving and didn’t know what to expect when receiving this razor. But after years of agony and massive expense trying out all different disposable razors and £100 electric razors that still ripped and pulled, I decided to do some research.
I came to the conclusion that maybe my Grandad had it right after all. So I bought a good brush and some cream. Then asked on various forums which razor to buy.
It came down to a murker or the Edwin Jagger. I bought the Jagger and after just 3 weeks I can honestly say I have never had such smooth irritation free shaves. It did take a couple of shave to get used to so you must persevere.
Also blades are another issue entirely. I have bought several selection packs but so far found that the Derby blades that came with it are very good, but for me the Astra blades are just a shade better. But I have found this is a very personal thing, what might be a perfect blade for me is a terrible blade for you.
To sum up, buy this razor and a selection of blades, try a different make blade every 2 days till you find one you like. Ditch the can of gel or foam for a good cream or soap, and I can guarantee you that you will have the best shave of your life!!
Thanks Shave Lounge for everything

After reading all the reviews,i decided to take the plunge and buy this razor.
Excellent service provided by the shave lounge,super quick delivery.
Anyway the first shave with this razor was better than i expected,no nicks,using a Derby blade
It has a very nice feel and weight,the quality of the product is very good the chrome is of very good quality, as you would expect from a british made item.
I would agree with all those people that recommend this razor as good for a first timer to DE wet shaving.

This razor feels and looks great but I think it is going to take time to get used to not cut myself overall not bad purchase

This is my first de razor, and now that I’ve got the hang of it I would never go back. Shaving is now a pleasure rather than something I have to endure. Thank you Shave Lounge for your speedy, problem-free service. 10/10

Can’t use it without cutting myself. Have given up. Probably my fault, but have watched a few videos and read loads of advice on using it.

Product is great, been using it for a few weeks now and am thoroughly pleased with my purchase. Delivery was fast and all in all a great transaction.

Decided to try this based on lots of positive reviews. I used to shave with all the OTT system razors and got sick of the expense and waste generated by them. I then switched to the orange Bic disposables, the dead basic one blade ones, after reading that a lot of barbers preferred them to any other razor type. I really like them, and found them comfortable, close shavers and obviously cheap (though still wasteful).
This is my first DE razor. The experience is actually really similar to using the Bic disposables, in that the head is fixed and there’s no conditioning strips etc. I’d actually recommend trying those Bics first to get a feel for what DE is like – they’re also a safe way to transition to this less forgiving method!
The DE89 is lovely – nice and heavy in the hand and provides a smooth, gentle shave. I’ve only tried it with Derbys and Personnas and already prefer the Derbys. I’m keen to try out a few brands though, and suggest you do the same.
Cost wise, it’s worth the initial outlay as blades are pretty cheap and you’ll get at least 2 or 3 shaves out of the Derbys.
This is definitely not as cost effective as buying 10 Bics for £1, but the experience is more pleasing and it makes shaving a nicer ritual. The razor itself is great, so don’t hesitate on it.

Bought this as a gift for a friend and understood that this and the Muhle R89 are two perfect razors for a beginner in the DE shaving. Although personally I like my own R89 Grande a bit more. The heads on DE89 and R89 are the same, so essentially it all comes down to the preference of the handle.

Say no more. DE89L everyone should have 1.

Great razor will never go back to a cartridge.
DavidM – 28th May 2013
Corny title? Yes. Great shave? The best ever!
Having decided that the cost of Mach3 blades was just getting ridiculous, I bought an Edwin Jagger DE89L. Being new to the Safety Razor doctrine, I read up on all things preparatory for having a good shave and off I went. I few nicks using a blue Personna blade and then a few less using a Derby two days later.
As they say practice makes perfect and by the results I am attaining, it will not be long until I have mastered the safety razor technique.
No doubt the closest shave I have had.
Can I also say that the Shave Lounge staff are brilliant.
I give this razor and the service 10/10, I mean 5/5 oh whatever!

This is my first DE savety razor. I was wondering weather all those people were right who said “no ingrown hairs, no irritation, when you shave with a savety razor”.
They are right! I’m using it for a week, now. I will never go back to the standard system razors! As a beginner in wet shaving with a DE razor I have to say this one helped me out of my problems. It’s smooth and nice to handle. After six shaves I had my first little cut today, but it’s nothing in comparison to the skin problems I had before. This razor is manufactured in the highest quality I can imagine. If only the chrome on my bike were nearly as good as it is on this razor! I just can recommend to start shaving with it! Great price for great results!

As a previous user of everything Gillette, I thought I’d give this razor a try as I’m fed up with the extortionate cost of the Gillette blades, even on the web.
I’ve never used a DE razor before and I have to confess that it’s taking some getting used to. Practice makes perfect as they say so I will stick with it for now.
Dylski – 22nd June 2012
If you’re looking for an amazing shave-don’t hesitate-get the DE89L. The weight & extra length of this gem give the closest shave you will ever have. I’ve tried out loads of blades-feathers, derby’s, astra’s, super max’s, sharks, dorcos & they all give spectacular results in this razor. Very pleased-cheers!

Theres nothing I can say that hasnt already been said about this razor. Admittedly this is the first and only DE razor i have used, and after 3 shaves I can only wish I had ditched the cartridges many years ago. Great product, and flawless service from shavelounge.
