After years of shaving with a multi-blade, and eventually finding it difficult to find cartridges for my Gillette Sensor, I decided to go "old-school" and shave like my grandfather... so, I took it one step further and went straight-blade. I did pretty well and only cut myself a few times, though they bled pretty good. I went with a Parker SR1 with disposable blades since I didn't want to face the hassle of honing and stropping.

At the same time, my sweet bride decided she would also like to change over to the single blade, so I bought her an Edwin Jagger DE 89lbl Safety Razor. She raved about it from the beginning and still loves it.

After a year, I got tired of the time commitment to shaving with a straight razor, so I broke down and tried my wife's DE Safety. It did great! Much better than I anticipated. Close shave, not a nick. I immediately began my search for my own, and after a few days research, decided on this quality instrument.

I have no complaints with the purchase. It is exactly what I was hoping for. It is heavy. It feels good in the hand. It is consistent - cuts well on both sides, with no surface abnormalities. I have used it with a variety of blade brands (great deals to be found on Amazon.com for variety packs!) I saw no concerns with the manufacturing (checked all joints with it dismantled, etc.). It is a well-made quality shaving instrument. The only minor dislike I have is that it is not 100% stainless... but I knew that going in to the purchase. I have gotten the closest shaves ever using this instrument. And, a few days ago, I went ahead and shaved a 2nd time "up" after the first time "down"... my rugged face was a smooth as a baby's hiney. This is a quality piece of manly equipment.

This is my first double edge safety razor. So far it exceeds my expectations. I am currently using Feather blades and Musgo Real Shave Cream. I have not cut myself (yet). On my first try I got a closer shave with this than my Gillette Fusion (four blades). However, each shave with this razor and blade combination has required two passes. That said, I've only had the razor for a week, and two passes with my Gillette would not produce the same results. Bottom Line: I'm pleased with the razor and recommend it to other new comers to wet shaving.

I received this as a gift for graduation. I love it. I got really bad razor burn with a standard cartridge razor, razor burn is all but gone with this. The razor is well-made, featuring a hefty, reassuring weight in the hand. The plating on the razor is well-done, and the stainless part of the handle is finely brushed, making for a handsome razor. This razor performs as well as it looks, too. The curved head above where the blade sits gives you a perfect angle to achieve a good shave. If you purchase this razor, you will not be disappointed.

This is the first and likely last D\E razor I'll have to buy. Since I intend to use this for years to come, I opted to buy once and went with a higher end product. A wise choice, after using the 43C, I am certain that my cartridge days are over.

This razor has a reassuring heft. The heaviness allows me to let the razor's weight and the blade work in tandem for a very smooth shave - I simply guide it along my face without pressure.

During my research I came across the term "aggressive" being used to describe razors. Thankfully the 43C does not fall into this category. I've been able to get a close shave without sacrificing my skin during the process. It cuts so smoothly that it had me thinking I was holding the razor at the wrong angle. But upon rinsing the razor, the sink was full of removed hair. In fact, it cuts so gently that when I apply my post-shave witch hazel there is minimal burn, nor have I experienced any post-shave facial irritation.

I withheld a star because the handle can be slippery if your hands are damp - this can be scary for a rookie. While a towel drying one's hands does address this, I feel that a bit of texture is warranted for grip.

All in all, I'm very happy to have abandoned the cartridge cartel, and this has proven to be a fine tool with which to do so. I use one razor a week, but now that I've taken to drying the razor after shaving, I may be able go two weeks before changing the blade.

Update: It wasn't beginner's luck: after weeks of use, still no nicks, shaving bumps or razor burn. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Nice looking and the most heaviest razor made from a high quality material. It has a very comfortable handle, which is easy to hold. Also is not as aggressive as some other razors are and brings less skin irritation. Still needs to hold it with a care because of the weight of the razor for preventing to cut your self. Wet shaving is an art and should not be done fast and not only in one direction. An almond sized portion of shaving paste "Cremo Cream" place into shaving bowl and mix with a small amount of hot water(4-5 drops) , then with shaving brush create a nice dense foam in it . Place that foam by using a brush on a shaving surface. Preliminary hot-warm water skin preparation and high quality blades are important too. In comparison to other creams and soaps "Cremo Cream" by using that way is easy to rinse from the razor and blades and it does not leave a lot of white films (prints) on a razor surface as other soaps do. One small advise - between the blade and plateau sit attached to the handle put through the screw a very thin rubberized washer. It will prevent soapy water to run inside of empty handle.
