    Hello. Since my Edwin Jagger 89 DE is broken, I will buy a second razor. I was thinking of a Muehle R89 or a Parker 26C. Any suggestions?

    A '50 Super Speed, a post-war ball-end Tech, or a Schick Krona.

    The Muhle you mention has the same head as your EJ (Cooperative design venture), or you could try a Slim, SS, or Tech. Really, it's hard to go wrong with vintage Gillettes.

    An R89 is the exact same razor head with a slightly different handle. If you like that head, look at Maggards and buy a clone head with a great stainless handle. Or look at a 4 pk. Bundle from them which has four different heads: open comb, closed comb, aggressive and slant. You can get them all for not much more than an EJ.

    1952 Super Speed Black Tip. I settled on either a Voskhod or Shark Super Chrome. Smooth as silk.
