We're very proud of our After Balm - a soothing finish to every shave
One felt an old fashion clean cut shave using this well made safety razor .
Hello Robert, glad you're enjoying your new safety razor. It was a pleasure chatting on the phone last week. All the very best, Con | The Stray Whisker
I've had Merkur razors since I stared DE shaving 10 years ago and only use a 34C and a Merkur long handle. The EJ89 will be my go to from the 1st shave. It's incredibly smooth with my preferred blades. The final result is probably not much different, but getting there is. It's also very well finished. Only time will tell how it wears, but EJ have put effort into presentation that Merkur has not. Weight is lighter than a 34C and is more towards the head, which for beginners is ideal - you want the weight of the head to do all the work.
Nice chunky feeling razor, and seems to cut me a lot less than my last one. A bit hard to dry as the handle doesn't have a hole all the way through, but that's a very minor issue. Highly recommended.
