This is my second DE89. I never picked up another razor after that. The head thread eventually wore down, but rather than getting a new head, I bought this. Really smooth, efficient and totally comfortable. I did get a 30ne6 stainless a while back, but too aggressive for me.
Shaving used to be a chore. Now its a ritual.
Quality components coupled with an outstanding design make this a very special piece of grooming hardware. The diamond-patterned handle provides outstanding grip for complete control throughout the shave, regardless of how wet or soapy the handle or your hands become. Weight distribution is excellent allowing the shaver to do the work for you at all times. Contrasting black and polished chrome finish earns maximum points for stylishly masculine appearance. Definitely the "Aston Martin" of double edge shavers.
Non-aggressive, middle of the road very effective in achieving the result i wanted, nice close shave, close enough but not to close to nick. After quite a number of shaves still yet to draw blood. Excellent 3D design, even with excess soap handle still easy to hold. Would I recommend this product? - "most defiantly".
