For the last month I've been on the fence about purchasing a safety razor and after viewing a number of Nick Shaves videos on Youtube, I decided to pull the trigger and I purchased an Edwin Jagger DE89Lbl via Amazon. I also purchased the razor sampler pack but I used the supplied Derby Extra blades that came with it. I received the set today and wow, I was surprised at the close shave I received. I've been shaving for close to 30 years and this is the closest shave I ever think I've received. I am a convert. I can't wait until my technique gets a bit more refined and I can use some sharper blades. I am so hooked.
