Well how does the EJ 89 compares to the .68 ? if they are in the same territory, no need for a .68, in my caseJust to give an alternative opinion from all but maybe one other poster here, I found the .84 steps over the line into too aggressive for daily use territory, though not by much. I found it possible to get just as close a shave with the .68, which is significantly less aggressive, with just a little more time and effort. However, it's not hard to see why many, maybe with tougher beards and tougher skin, would be very happy with the .84 even on a daily basis. It sure has high build quality and close tolerances and easily produces a close shave.
