    I thought the top & bottom plates were the same.

    You can get it directly from the Muehle USA Website.
    The exact product is here.
    However, I don't know if they are exact matches to the Edwin Jager.

    I've heard it said that they are not identical, but I've never been shown a difference. I have both, and can't tell them apart.

    Ah Geez, don't tell me your top cap broke. Man, I am so sorry. Mind doing a how to for extraction? For us folks that might have the issue in the future?

    Just do yourself a favor and purchase an MJ-90 from Italian Barber. It's aluminum. Yes it's soft, but it's not Zamak.

    I have one and I'm a big fan of the EJ DE89 but the above is excellent advice.

    The MJ-90 is a better quality razor for a ridiculously low price.

    That's why I bought one. I like the shave of the EJ, but I'm not a fan of Zamak.
