Will an R41 head fit an Edwin Jagger handle?

    I have a spare EJ handle and I noticed that some sites sell replacement Muhle heads. I was thinking of buying an R41 head and turn my spare handle into a new razor. Just wanted to know if head and handle are compatible.
    Also if it is, has anyone tried this combination of R41 head and EJ handle, and if so what did you think of it?

    Yes, it fits perfect! I have tried, it shaves fine. I do prefer a heavier handle such as the Weber Bulldog. You'll have no issues.

    It will defintly fit. Here a picture...;)
    There is (for me) no noticable difference between the original handle and the EJ handle. The Optic,ok,but i donĀ“t think there will be much of a difference in the balance. :) Give it a go.

    The R41 head is just as versatile as the R89's head. It will fit on over 30 handles from EJ, Muhle and Baxter of California. Dozens of third-party handles as well.
