This is, as the smooth brother, an unbelievable quality reazor. For experienced and starting wet shavers either.

The fit and finish is stunning, thick plating.
Well balanced for my uses, I love it.
It's my go to shaving tool and since it's a three piece razor it's easy to toss in my bag for traver.

The grip is not that much improved with this pattern on the handle, from his smooth borther.

Yet it's overall well balanced and comfortable.
Not too thick, not too thin.

It's made in zama, but at this price tag I doubt to find anything better.

Pros: beautiful chrome finish
Cons: very mild
Very mild for me. The handle had a poor grip with soapy hands, but that's easily fixed by running water on the handle. This is a good starter razor. Hard to cut yourself if you're new to shaving.

Pros: barley lined handle and quality
My 2nd razor purchased and my favorite.
I have 9 razors in my arsenal and this is my go to razor.
Have used 9 brands of blades, 10 brands of soaps, creams, gels and foams in different combinations in this razor.
And only one blade I threw out and never used again.
This razor is forgiving and gives a good shave every time.
The weight of the 89 is balanced and helps you
gain a good technique.
It was easy to use from day one, I chose the barley handle because it slips less during shaving.
Remember you still have to be careful when shaving, to much pressure can hurt, go slow when changing blades .
If you want to buy just one razor for life this would be it.
I recommend this razor as a starter and a long life every day razor.
