Beautiful chrome plated safety razor by Edwin Jagger. The DE89 has a polished chrome handle with vertical lines and is made to precision standards with a great balanced weight design. Uses any standard double edge blade.

I just got into DE shaving after about 40 years of cartridge shaving. I had bought a drug store shaver and was doing ok and was interested. With reviews here I ordered the DE89L and I cannot say what a pleasure it is to use. I am a machinist/mechanic by trade and thought the better head would help with comfort, wow the difference is unreal. Do yourself a favor and spend a little extra and get this razor, as the other reviews say you will not regret it!
Also a thanks you to Lee for the great service, this will be my go to site for supplies.

First let me start off by saying what a pleasure it was to deal with Lee. My first call to him was to gain some insight and that I did.
Five days later I called back and ordered my DE89L. Lee understood my need as I had lost 3 Merkurs in a move along with my brush one year ago and have been struggling with a generic 5 blade and a Sensor since then. My order went in on a Friday and I received it on the following Monday!!!!!!
Initial impressions? I didn't expect good things right off the bat as my face had become conditioned to inferior razors. So armed with my DE89L, I started out and somewhat aggressive wanting to get the best shave. Obviously I had forgotten how to use a DE and ended up with some weepers.
Three shaves later...... I have it back! I am trying the different blades you sent and so far the 7 O'clocks are working well.
For lack of a brush at this time, the Tabac shave stick is working ok except for the additional time to clean up, I have gotten a close shave..... this will be in my shave kit when traveling into the back woods.
Thanks Lee. I will be back time and time again

I am new to DE shaving and bought this on a recommendation from Lee. It is a great razor. No issues at all with the razor. I like the ridges on the handle which help with the grip. Not too keen on the blades that come with the razor, but the Red Personna blades that Lee suggested are top notch.

Though I am new to DE shaving, I can tell quality when I see it. The DE89L is solid and a nice weight. It isn't too heavy or too light. The appearance screams high craftsmanship. The chrome is beautiful and when they say the same chrome is used on Rolls Royce's, they're not kidding. The lines on this model really make it a nice piece. When shaving, I do feel the lines, which provides confidence that the razor won't slip. All in all, just a beautiful, high-quality razor.
On a side note, working with Lee has been a pleasure. He has been there to answer any and all questions I have had. He is highly knowledgable, friendly, and most importantly, honest. I highly recommend purchasing from Lee's Safety Razors. Buy with confidence.

I own many razors...Mergress,Tradere OC,Slantbar,Feather and so on. With the exception of the crappy Feather, I get a great shave with all of them. But, when I want a guaranteed great shave, with the ultimate in comfort, I reach for my beloved EJ DE89. If I could only use one razor for the rest of my life...it would be this paired with Gillette Greens.

My wife purchased the Edwin & Jagger Double Edge Razor;DE89L but we were shipped the DE89 instead.This instrument is of high quality but would prefer the one that was ordered.Also ordered and delivered per our order request were Prorasco Tube Shaving Creme which is the quality that it is advertised as.The Derby Razor Blades were of high quality and provided an excellent shave. Am going to try the sample 4 pack of razors to get a fair comparative analysis realizing factors ie. face shape,technique and razor used etc will determine which blade is best for my situation.The beginners brush that my wife in cluded in her purchase works fine for my skill level. I am purchasing Musgo Mens Bar Soap and Musgos Real Shampoo/Body Wash along with Col Conks 4-Samole pack of mug soaps Will order Musgos Real Aqua #3 Spicy Cologne when it is back in stock.Ordered wood and brass bowl,razor and brush holder this morning. With the exception of not receiving the razor that was ordered, for my anniversary,my overall experience with Lee'S Razors has been very pleasant and quite exceptional Almost forgot....... have to order a mug to make my shopping experience complete!

I bought this razor and some other items via Lee's website. Due to an error on my part, I felt the need to call their office. It was Sunday but I figured I would give it a shot. I called and...Lee answered the phone, himself. We worked out my problem, then he spent about a half-hour on the phone talking to me about the razor and some other topics. I will conduct business with this company as long as I am shaving. Class act and a gentleman.

This is my daily "go to" razor. Coupled with a Feather, you'd be hard pressed to find anything better!
