Are you using the "In Vouge" Swedish/Danish/Norske 5-pack on blue card Gillettes?xcubbies said:I like the heft of the Jagger. Can't compare it to the Merkur, never having used one. I must say that I've been switching back and forth between the Merkur and Gillette blades and don't see much difference there either.
Thanks! It appears that Auravita is "having its way" with the e-clientelle selling half as many blades for twice the price.xcubbies said:I'm using the blue card Gillettes that come ten to the dispenser. There is a supermarket chain in France that sells them for Euro 1.85/each, which is less than $2.25. The Merkur's platinums I can buy where I bought the razor, in Geneva, for CHF 5/ for ten blades; this works out to a bit less than $4.00.
Clark, check back either later tonight or tomorrow. I'll be posting pics of a faux ebony handled EJ DE. For what it is worth, the razor just has a very classy look. My razor has a plastic handle so the heft of the razor is somewhat lighter than the Merkur Futur I have. I really like this razor and if you want/need a razor with alot of heft, I hear the Chatsworth models are some of the heaviest available. Hope this helps.Clark said:Does anyone have any information on the Edwing Jagger DE? I ma hearing good things about it, but nothing specific.
How about a picture Cliff? Maybe a nice closeup of the handle? Perhaps, if you have an accuarate kitchen or postal scale, weighing it without the sensor cartridge? Thanks! Become an enabler!Cliff said:I have an EJ handle in Faux horn for my sensor and I love it. Adds some length, heft and class to an otherwise dull (dull as in boring, not less sharp ) shaving instrument.
