    Rafen, for that price, I would move up to an Edwin Jagger DE86 or DE89. They are in my opinion of better quality and have tighter tolerances which makes for a better shave. I have the DE89 and it is an excellent razor.

    The chrome is plated in the same plating facility that plates Rolls Royce chrome plated parts.



    Bullgoose is an excellent vendor. I have done business with them before and they are excellent.

    That looks like a rebranded Edwin Jagger. I don't know about that handle, but the head is decent. My preference would be the same as GD to go for and Edwin Jagger at that price, but some people prefer the Merkur so I can't claim it as more than a preference.

    I believe the Brand Col Conk might be a Merker sub-brand..so it could be a Merker. I do like the handle better than EJ in that price range, but like GD Carrington says, the Edwin standards you can be more certain of...

    I've got one of the Merkur 38C's that I am pleased with. Like you I was looking for a blue handled razor. It was a few dollars cheaper from west coast shaving.

    That is a looker...but beauty is as beauty shaves.....and with the Merkur or EJ your not gambling with your skin...;)
    Never thought about it...but the blue does look nice....
