Edwin Jagger is Europe's foremost manufacturer of luxury handmade shaving equipment. Edwin Jagger products are crafted and hand-assembled in Sheffield, England — a city known for its rich industrial history. The Edwin Jagger DE89 Chrome Barley DE Safety Razor (Closed Comb) is a traditional and economical double edge safety razor.
With an overall length of 93mm (3.7"), this is a standard-sized razor with a practical 83mm (3.3") handle that offers a great level of manoeuvrability and agility. The handle is light and small but the head is heavy, which keeps you from taking a chance and cutting yourself, while still giving you the control you need. Although heavier than common disposable razors, at 68g (2.4oz), this is not a particularly heavy razor overall. This makes it particularly well-suited for those new to wet shaving as it can glide across the face easily, providing a superbly comfortable shave.
The handle is finished with an attractive barley knurling pattern, giving the razor a particularly pleasant aesthetic. Not only is the handle beautiful, it's also practical with the knurled design ensuring a firm grip, which is especially important when shaving with damp or soapy hands.
This double edge safety razor is fitted with the classic Edwin Jagger DE Head, which has been popular amongst the wet shaving community for many years. The closed comb head is expertly engineered and finished with a high-quality chrome plate. It has an excellent reputation for the expert level of shaving it achieves.
The classic Edwin Jagger closed comb razor head is praised for being an excellent choice for those trying traditional shaving for the first time, whilst remaining a firm favourite of those who are more experienced. Closed comb style razors are the most popular type of double edge safety razor on the market. Closed comb refers to the fact that, aside from potentially having small grooves running along it, the safety bar is relatively straight. This feature offers a milder shave, one that restricts blade exposure but still offers a close and precise shave. This milder shave makes it the perfect choice for those new to using a DE and the go-to for daily shaving for new and experienced shavers alike.
This product includes one free Feather Hi-Stainless DE Safety Razor Blade to get you started. Feather Blades are the preferred pairing recommended by Edwin Jagger as the sharpness of the blade paired with the head offers a comfortable, clean shave. All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and therefore any DE blades you purchase will be compatible with this razor.
All Edwin Jagger products are finished off with a thorough quality check and packed securely in attractive Edwin Jagger packaging, allowing for safe and secure delivery.
