Edwin Jagger DE89L vs Gillette Super Speed - 1960's

Discussion in 'Double Edged Razors' started by antsjack, Jan 3, 2010.

  1. Does anyone have experience with the EJ DE89 and a 60s Super speed. How do they compare? Is the EJ smoother that the SS? I have had a Merkur HD and Progress. None of these were smooth for me. I have also had a 60's SS. This was smoother than the Merkurs for me, but not really smooth. I found 1970's SS smoother. So far Merkur open combs are smoothest for me, but I am really curious about the new EJ, due to its reviews
     
  2. I've got the Muhle R89 version and a '65 Flair tip SS. The Muhle is a bit more aggressive than the SS and is my daily shaver. Loaded w/Personna Reds I get a BBS w/2 passes regardless of soap/cream used. I find this razor to be almost impossible to cut myself with (except when loaded w/a Feather). I can't say enough good things about this razor. I'm anxiously awaiting a new custom handle from CooncatBob.

    Try it, you'll like it.

  3. What do you mean by "smooth"? Are you talking about how much hair the razor hacks off on each pass?
