The sensational performance and finish of the Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 Stainless Steel Blue DE Safety Razor has been achieved using revolutionary product design and advanced precision manufacturing techniques.
The range takes its name from the 316 grade of stainless steel - a grade originally forged in Sheffield, England, home of Edwin Jagger. With a superior resistance to corrosion and pitting, grade 316 is the ideal choice for wet shaving implements.
Great care has been taken during the prototyping stages to ensure each step of the manufacturing process contributes to a resilient and practical razor.
The 3ONE6 is a versatile and easy-to-use razor – the quality of the shave remains consistent from a wide variety of shaving angles while the balance and weight should delight all shavers. Its slimline form ensures a nimble shave with reliable, smooth and efficient results.
Famous within the world of wet shaving for the iconic classic DE89 razor head, Edwin Jagger celebrates the use of a new material for the 3ONE6 and a completely new advanced head design.
The raised rails on the base plate create the perfect position for the blade which has been established through years of experience and extensive testing. This enables the razor to shave equally effectively from multiple angles of approach. It is compatible with all the most popular DE razor blades on the market and has been designed to combine impeccably with any choice of blade. The 3ONE6 generates next to no blade feel to ensure a comfortable and premium shaving experience.
The carefully planned layout of the locating pins minimises possible movement of the blade when secured between the top and bottom plates, makes the razor easy to assemble and offers increased stability of the blade edge during the shave.
The delicately ridged skin guards on the outer edges of the base plate gently stretch your facial skin to create a uniform shaving surface and prepare the beard hair for the blade. Any excess shaving lather and cut hair is smartly channelled away through four lather slots to prevent the razor from clogging as its shaves. These features make for a smooth, quick and effortless shaving experience.
The two-part razor head is the first ever double edge safety razor head to be produced in the UK using 100% metal injection moulding (MIM). MIM is a manufacturing process that involves combining pure metal powders with binding materials making injection and manipulation easier to control. This carefully formulated mix of material is then injected into unique Edwin Jagger tooling using extreme pressure and then heat to create the small and complex precision components. MIM permits very fine manufacturing tolerances and minimises any weakness due to the directional flow of injected material.
The central screw thread is extremely strong and is an integral, robust and durable part of the top plate. The characteristics formed by the engineered tooling have been embellished to showcase the advanced manufacturing techniques utilised in the creation of this amazing razor.
The Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 Stainless Steel Double Edge Safety Razor has been extensively stress-tested and Edwin Jagger can guarantee the screw thread will not snap with normal use.
The MIM process also ensures Edwin Jagger customers benefit from a range of efficiencies as well as outstanding performance, unrivalled quality and reasonable price point of this premium stainless steel razor.
The collar and end-cap of the 3ONE6 are CNC machined from Sheffield-forged 316 grade stainless steel. The quality of the machining is such that the finish is exemplary; there are no signs of the cutting and shaping tools used during the manufacturing process. The 100% continuous CNC machines used by Edwin Jagger create each component in one single process. This enhances the flowing curves of the component pieces and elevates the elegant overall design.
The range of colourful handles available for the Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 Stainless Steel Double Edge Safety Razor are made from aerospace grade anodised aluminium and offer a striking, decorative and stylish finish. A more light-weight razor than the entirely stainless version, this material has been specifically selected for its excellent machining qualities and secondary finishing processes and is resistance to impact damage. The anodising process creates an extraordinary surface finish that withstands daily handling and prevents the razor from oxidising, further increasing its longevity. It also adds a fine texture which aids with grip.
The precision fluting on the aluminium handle provides the razor with extra grip to ensure it does not slip - even with wet hands - and adds to the engineered aesthetic of the razor. Fine laser detailing around the collar and end cap showcases the Edwin Jagger name and world-renowned mark of quality manufacturing, ‘Sheffield, England’.
The handles of the 3ONE6 are made using equipment utilised in aerospace manufacture. The original batches of handles were tested with up to one quarter of a metric ton of pressure without failing.
The Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 Stainless Steel Double Edge Safety Razor is the first ever commercially manufactured razor of its type to be made in Sheffield using components machined from genuine Sheffield-forged 316 grade stainless steel.
In addition to the MIM and CNC production processes, the components of the handle and two-part head are subjected to a series of finishing techniques. The attractive surface of the razor is achieved through two separate machine and chemical surface enhancement processes commonly used in the manufacture of medical equipment. This produces a smooth, clean, and bright appearance free from impurities and reveals the optimal characteristics of the stainless steel base. Each component goes through at least six different production processes and six individual inspection processes before final boxing. Every razor is polished and packed by hand by one of our dedicated Sheffield craftspeople.
The smart packaging for the 3ONE6 is also 100% made in the UK and has been designed with user interaction in mind. The box slides open and locks, revealing the individual component pieces of the razor through the viewing window. Each piece is suspended in a safe and secure high-density foam insert made from recycled materials.
The shaver experiences the pleasure of assembling the razor for the first time and is encouraged to inspect each component in its original form.

- Best I’ve bought.....
This razor is amazing. Lovely shave right off the bat . I even tried with well known less aggressive razor blades and still a great result. It will be hard to do razor rotations now I have this. I may just have to buy different coloured 3ONE6’s.......!

- A quality razor
This is perhaps the best-looking razor I own, and the engraved collar and cap add real style. Looks aside, it's beautifully made, and shaves like a dream. Superb value as well.

- An excellent razor and highly recommended
Excellent stylish razor that shaves beautifully smooth in two passes. I was fortunate to get delivery in the first few days after release of the blue handle variant. The colour looks a little lighter in reality than on screen and although slim the deep groves on the aluminium handle make holding it firmly very easy.
The stainless steel head is beautifully designed and finished, with no machining marks at all. The shave is moderately aggressive but highly effective even with middle of the range blades (I have tried Treet and Shark Chrome so far). Because there is virtually no blade sensation it is easy to make a minor nick without realising it, so treat this razor with respect. Having said that, it is easy to use and even beginners could cope with this as a first razor.
My one criticism is that the 3One6 is slightly top heavy when fitted with a lightweight aluminium handle. EJ might consider a balancing weight in the bottom of the handle in future. I would like to try this with a stainless steel handle at some point and would love the red handle too (please, EJ, sell them individually - most of us cannot afford £75 for a second razor).
Overall, an excellent buy and definitely the best of my six razors (Merkur, Parker, Razorock). If I could afford just one razor then this would be it.
