Georgian morning

with one comment

This morning I shaved with my Georgian Edwin Jagger razor, and it was extremely nice: the large grip was comfortable, and the customized Merkur Classic head did a fine job—exceptional shave, in fact, perhaps in part due to the fine lather my Sabini ebony-handled brush worked up from Honeybee Sue’s Oceania shea-butter shaving soap. Geo. F. Trumper Spanish Leather aftershave and—what the hell—Geo. F. Trumper Spanish Leather cologne. In for a penny, in for a pound, I always say.

Edwin Jagger buys the Classic heads from Merkur, and has them do an extra polishing step. If the head is chrome, it is plated according to Edwin Jagger specifications to match the rest of the Edwin Jagger line. If it is gold plated, the head is shipped to Edwin Jagger, who has it gold plated to their specifications in Sheffield. The result is quite an elegant line of razors, with a variety of handles from which to choose. Those who prefer a larger handle should certainly check out these razors. I just updated the Guide (Edition 1.91) to include a small section on the Edwin Jagger razors.

  1. Is the Edwin Jagger Georgian razor the same as or very similar to the Badger and Blade special edition that was sold through the B&B website, last winter? In celebration of my birthday, I finally used my B&B “English Gentleman’s Razor” for the first time, last night. I am in complete agreement with your assessmant of you EJ razor – I got a nearly perfect shave with no irritation.

    I was using a new Swedish Gillette, St. Charles Shave Bay Rum With a Twist creme, and my B&B / EJ brush in finest silvertip, which I also used for the first time, last night. A great combination!
