Edwin Jagger DE89 vs. Mühle R89
EJ and Mühle developed the head as a joint venture. Both companies claim to produce the heads by themselves. There are rumors once in a while that all heads are made in China, chromed and put together in UK or Germany, but that are just roumors.
I own two EJ (the classic chrome with plain handle and a gold version of it, as well as the R89 in chrome and the R106 with the black handle). All of them shave about the same. Differences are barely noticeable, but they are there, even when changing the handles / using the same handle for all heads. The slight differences are not only between the EJs and the Mühles, but ALL are slightly different (the gold EJ is the most agressive one, the R106 the most efficient, the DE89 the mildest, so to speak). I also have a tiny bit more problems aligning the blades with the Mühle razors.
But this is just nitpicking. For a daily use one do not really notices a difference in shaving and result. That also refers to the Merkur 34c. I also have to concentrate, to notice any difference. The Merkur is just different, because of the very short and thick handle (which you can’t interchange, since it’s a two piece razor), and which I just do not like (so I sold mine a while ago).
I would recommmend to choose that one you like most (for me it’s the standard DE89 by EJ).
Edwin Jagger DE8911 vs Edwin Jagger DE89L vs Muhle R89 safety razors
These are some of the most famous safety razors made (I believe) for the same company for Edwin Jagger and Muhle.The razors have different finish and handle styles,however they are all elegant and share the same closed comb head.Lets check their weight first :-Edwin Jagger DE8911 “Barley” has a weight of 79 grams :-Edwin Jagger DE89 has a weight of 73 grams :-Edwin Jagger DE89L has a weight of 75 grams :-Muhle R 89 has a weight of 64 grams,being almost 10 grams lighter than the DE89 and 15 than the DE8911 :Each razor has a different handle pattern/style :-The Edwin Jagger DE89 has a smooth and flat handle,and some people are afraid that the razor handle could slip their fingers while theyre shaving with it.Well,I have never experience that,even when my hands and fingers are wet with this one or the DE87 (Ivory imitation handle) and the DE86 (black handle )The DE89 is a well made razor,not as heavier than the DE8911 or the DE89L,but with an good balance.-The Edwin Jagger DE89L has a “flutted” knurling handle (correct me if I’m wrong, since I’m using google translate for the word Im looking for to describe the handle of this razor) and it seems that it would give you a better grip than the DE89,but to me,they are both almost the same.Yes,its nice to see that pattern on the handle but I dont think it makes that much difference when you hold it.But some people like it better this way.Its weight its almost perfect for me,but I think I like the DE8911 a little bit better, since its 4 grams heavier.The balance is also good,having most of its the weight on the close comb head.-The Muhle R 89 has a deep knurling handle,which its a beauty to see.Its the lightest one of the all 4 and also the most expensive one,65 dollars.It shines a lot and has,for me,the most elegant design too.Of course it feels “lighter” than the other ones,but its balance is still there,having almost a lot of its weight on the head.-The Edwin Jagger DE8911 is the heaviest one of the 4 and also has a different knurling,called “Barley”,which is not as “deep” as the one on the Muhle,but its also more “refined”.The end of its handle has a small “ball” which reminds me of the Old Type Gillettes :This razor has also a good grip,good balance and perfect weight for me.Also is the one that most shavers like among the Edwin Jagger/Muhle classic style safety razors.All these razors provides excellent shaves and have elegant designs.Its a question of personal preference (style,type of knurling,weight) which one to choose,but they all will provide you years of quality shaves.

Today’s article is a Muhle R89 review and buying guide – a German-made closed comb de safety razor; We check out the Muhle Traditional, Twist, and Grande versions.
How does the Muhle closed comb safety razor measure up against other safety razors such as the bestselling Merkur 34c and Edwin Jagger de89? Let’s find out in this Muhle R89 review!
Muhle R89 (Summary)
In a hurry? Here is the review key takeaway: Recommended Use: Beginner Editor’s Rating: (5/5) Value for Money: (4.5/5) Quality: (5/5) Rating & Feedback: Check out more reviews and feedback here. Summary: As our Muhle R89 review will show; this double edge safety razor is a great choice for beginners that want to get into classic shaving. Muhle is known for its stunning quality and finish. The Muhle safety razor is also a great 2nd safety razor for men who’ve mastered the skill of wet shaving and looking to invest in high-end German quality safety razors.

Muhle Safety Razor First Impression
This classic safety razor has a traditional single blade razor design, but important factors such as weight (the standard model is very light), high-quality material, chrome finishing, the distance between the DE safety razor blade and handle, and the angle of the blade have evolved to near perfection due to a highly motivated and skilled design -and manufacturing team.
After the parts of the safety razor are cast in brass or steel, they go through a specialized chrome plating process.
This provides the Muhle closed comb safety razor with its classic gloss and appearance and protects the metal underneath. When you hold a Muhle R89 safety razor in your hand you will immediately notice that this is one of those real German quality shaving products!
Please note – The Muhle Traditional safety razor version is also sometimes referred to as Classic and Standard.
If not particularly mentioned in this review, we are referring to the Traditional safety razor version, if we are not explicitly saying Muhle Grande or Muhle Twist. There is also a Rosegold handle version (which is based on the Standard version). This version is a great safety razor for women
The first impression in this review is that the safety razor feels great in the hand, the finishing is perfect and it is designed to be lightweight. This is Solingen’s handcraft at a high level for sure!
The standard version of the Muhle safety razor weighs only 64 grams (2.26 ounces). Generally, given that it is a closed head comb, will provide you with a mild shave pretty similar to the Bevel safety razor.
However, this single razor shaver can still offer you a nice and tight shave when you want it to. All you need to do is load it with a more aggressive blade like the Feather and you will be good to go.

We Like The Muhle safety razor has an excellent design and construction as well as a perfect chrome finish
The Muhle safety razor has an excellent design and construction as well as a perfect chrome finish Muhle provides you with 3 options to choose from; the 3-piece or 2-piece. If you have bigger hands and therefore prefer a longer & thicker handle, Mühle shaving has that option covered as well

It is perfect for persons who prefer a mild, but tight shave (especially beginners) It is lightweight which is perfect if you are transitioning from cartridge razors to a safety razor Keep This in Mind The two-piece Muhle Twist variation is quite expensive
The two-piece Muhle Twist variation is quite expensive Not the best choice for those that have a thick, tough beard
Muhle R89 Closed Comb Safety Razor Versions
Many brands in the market today will provide you with either a three or a two-piece safety razor variant. The Muhle R89 razor, however, offers them both.
It also provides you with a variant featuring an extra-long handle if this is what you fancy. They refer to the latter as the Muhle R89 Grande.
Related reading: Best Head Shaver for Men
Both the Muhle R89 Grande and the Standard Muhle R89 feature the same safety razor head. They come with a three-piece razor while the Muhle R89 Twist version features a two-piece head, allowing for the base plate and the handle to be permanently bolted together.
We shall break this review into different parts since it has different razor variants that sport some subtle differences.
Interestingly enough, some pro wet shavers who have tried this safety razor have gone on record to say that it is similar to the Edwin Jagger DE89. Looking deeper into it reveals that the head of these 2 popular safety razors has the same design.
Here is another neat feature: It has (Standard and Grande versions only) the same handle as the “evil brother” Muhle R41 Open Comb Safety Razor, so you can start your wet-shaving career with a Muhle R89 and after a while, pick up just a Muhle R41 replacement headpiece and use that on the old and familiar handle.

The traditional version is the lightest of the three variants. It weighs only 2.26 ounces.
Such a light safety razor has its pros and cons. If you are transitioning from a lighter razor, like the cartridge type, then a light safety razor will make the transition to wet shaving easier.
You can later proceed to slightly heavier safety razor models. During your transition phase, however, there are a few things that you should unlearn fast.
One of these bad habits is putting on too much weight on your safety razor. You also will need to learn to use more of your shoulders rather than your wrist as was the case with cartridge razors.
As for the grip, the Muhle safety razor features a knurled design though it is not as deep as one would expect it to be. When working it horizontally, you will not slip, but while working it vertically your hands can slip especially since they will be wet.
With regards to its length, the traditional version measures 3.7 inches (94 mm). With this length, men with larger hands will find it comfortable and have just the right grip.
Finally, the standard version is a three-piece safety razor. This means that the Muhle R89 safety razor has 3 different parts including the handle, base plate, and head plate.
Muhle R89 Twist
At 4.2 inches (107 mm), the Muhle Twist safety razor is the longest variant (along with the Grande) from this company. In addition to this, it also is the heaviest of the three choices at 3.17 ounces (90 grams).
Features Specs Performance Weighs 3.17 ounces (90 grams)

This variant features a thicker handle and has a completely different balance point that is closer to the end of the handle than the head. With the Twist, you have most of your concerns on how to get a perfect shave addressed.
Cleaning this version is much easier.
Well, rather than having a hole that runs through the shaft, this model is much shallower which makes it easier to clean with a swab. This design, in addition to making it easier to clean, also reduces the chances of corrosion.
On the flip side though, it is less aggressive than the standard version. Adding to this, it works perfectly with mid-range safety razor blades like the Wilkinson Sword.
When you decide to use sharper and more aggressive blades like the Feather, you need to keep a sharp focus as well. However, it is also important to know that how aggressive a blade feels on the face is also dependent on the person.
What may be aggressive for you could be mild for another person. That said, if this is your first time trying out wet shaving, you probably should purchase a sampler pack to find your preference.
Muhle R89 Grande
Both the Muhle R89 Grande and the Twist safety razor version are of the same length.
The Grande version proves to be slightly lighter by approx. 10 grams.
But unlike the Twist variation, the Muhle R89 Grande is a 3 piece safety razor.
So in comparison, the Grande safety razor is more of a heavier and longer version of the standard Muhle safety razor.
Features Specs Performance Weighs 2.8 ounces (80 grams)

Ease of Loading the Blade
For the standard and the Grande versions, loading the blades is slightly more difficult since they are 3 piece razors. Working with 3 different parts as you would imagine is slightly harder than with two parts.
Take care when you are loading the safety razor and ensure that you hold onto the sides of the safety razor to have the blade aligned as you tighten the grip. As for the Muhle R89 Twist which features a 2 piece design, you have the base plate attached to the handle.
So to load the blade, you will need to twist a lever located on the bottom side of the blade and then remove the top cap to load it. After loading the blade put back the bottom piece and then tighten it.
What Does Other Reviews and Users Say about Muhle R89 Shaving Razor
Many persons who have made this safety razor purchase have just been introduced to the art of wet shaving. Most have gone on record leaving reviews to state that they loved the experience especially because it gave them a smoother and a close shave that was for the most part nick-free.
One user in a review specifically said that with this standard model he used a Feather blade which gave near-perfect shave results. There were, however, some concerns about safety razor quality.
Related reading: Feather AS-D2 Review
Some complained that the bolt broke off and some about the chipping of the chrome finishing. Check out hundreds of unbiased Muhle R89 reviews and feedback on amazon for this safety razor.
A solution for these problems is to ensure that the safety razor is dried completely to prevent any corrosion of the metals. Proper care and maintenance are usually the keys to product longevity.
Many find a cotton swab to be very useful for this.
But here is the thing, regardless of the variant that you choose you will still have a close quality shaving experience that with regular care will last you year after year, thus deserving a spot on many shaving blogs’ best men’s safety razor lists.
The variants of the old fashioned razor all have different price tags due to their different features. The two-piece safety razor is the most expensive, but it offers more convenience when it comes to loading the blade than the other two variants.
Muhle R89 Razor – Which Version Should I Choose?
Choosing between the three (or 4 if we include the Rose Gold version) product variations is all a matter of preference. But even then as earlier pointed out, you should bear in mind that the three-piece safety razors are easier to clean though they take a slightly longer time to assemble and load a blade.
The Twist takes a relatively shorter time to assemble.
Also, it is essential to note that the aggressiveness of the safety razor, for the most part, depends on the blade that you use. That being said, the Twist version is a tad less aggressive.
Related reading: Merkur 38c Review
The more aggressive the blade – the more aggressive the shaving will be thus calling for more of your attention while wet shaving, but still all versions are to be considered safe razors. For some users, the lightweight might be a drawback, as they don’t get that heavy, solid feeling but that is a personal shaving preference.
Muhle r89 Accessories, Blade Recommendations, Kits, and Gift Sets
Muhle R89 is a safety razor that is great for beginners, but also a good pick as a safety razor for women, so you might want to start with a kit. Luckily for you, there are several grooming kits and gift sets for a beginner to choose from.
Since this razor has more or less the same specs as Edwin Jagger 89 Double Edge – accessories that fit that one will also fit this safety razor and vice versa.
Other men also suggest that when you purchase the safety razor, you also purchase a sampler safety razor blade pack featuring different brands of blades to find your personal shave favorite. But you will not go wrong with either a Muhle Stainless Steel, a Feather, or Astra.
There is a nice leather travel case if you want to bring your ’89 safety razor out on the road. It will fit your razor and a travel brush nicely. If you don’t want to go all-out regarding a safety razor travel case, you should at least consider this Blade Guard.
If you don’t want to pick up a complete safety razor shave kit, but rather build up your own set a step at a time, it doesn’t get much better than this stand: Muhle Classic stand (Safety Razor and Brush) – Please keep in mind if you have a shave brush already – this stand will only fit up to 25mm knot size.
If you already have a stand for your brush, then this one will be a good match: Muhle Classic stand (Safety Razor only).
Fits R89, R106, R 107, R41, R101, R102, R89 Grande and R 41 Grande. It should also accept Merkur’s models: 11C, 15C, 23C, 25C, 33C, 34C, 37C, 41001, 42001, due to its neck size.
Muhle r89 vs Merkur 34c & Edwin Jagger De89
The wet shaving industry has indeed grown exponentially in the past couple of years. And while this is a great thing – finally you get to enjoy shaving like your beloved grandfather used to back in the day, it’s also a big problem especially for beginners searching for the best shave product.
You see, the increased demand for safety razors has led to an increase in the number of manufacturers. And while many are whack and provide low-quality shave products, some are true to quality and pay attention to details.
Separating the good from the not-so-good is easy. But honestly, it’s not easy to differentiate between safety razors considered the best in the industry. In light of this, we shall take you through 3 of the best safety razors with a closed comb, detailing their pros and cons to help you make an informed shave choice. The razors we choose to go head to head include; Muhle, Merkur, and Edwin Jagger since they are easily available. Another razor that is similar, but not so easily available (at least in the US) is the Timor safety razor.
Model Our Rating Item Weight Item Length Muhle R89 Traditional (5/5) 2.26 ounces/64 grams 3.7 inches/ 94 mm Merkur 34c (4.5/5) 2.83 ounces/ 80.5 grams 3.3 inches/ 84 mm Edwin Jagger de89 (4.5/5) 2.2 ounces/ 62 grams 3.9 inches/ 99 mm
First of all, none of these safety razors are bad picks, it mostly comes down to personal shave preferences and price.
High quality and great craftsmanship
Perfect chrome finish
Slightly more expensive than the competitors (this goes especially for the Muhle R89 Twist version)
Great design and build
Knurling prevents the hand from slipping
2 piece safety razor design easy to adjust the blade so that it is even on both sides
Very short handle
Edwin Jagger DE89
Same safety razor head as Muhle R89
Different colors and handles to choose from
Quality is good, but not as good as Muhle R89
Summary: The Merkur 34C HD is a great safety razor, it is more or less perfect both for beginners and experienced wet shavers. The design and construction are of great quality, but that does not seem to affect the price of the product. Even though the price has gone up over the last couple of years, it still is an affordable and safe razor.
Related reading: Merkur 37c Review
The two-piece design it sports makes assembling easier in comparison to many three-piece products available on the market.
The major downside is the length of the handle, if this concerns you, you might want to check out the Merkur 180 Long Handled Safety Razor – also known as Merkur 23C
If the price concerns you, you should have a look at our review of the Merkur 34C.
When it comes to the quality and finish – Muhle R89 is for sure the best pick.
But just to make this clear, the Merkur safety razor is not of bad quality, it is just that the Muhle safety razors are in a different league (and therefore more expensive).
The Muhle R89 also has a better grip and handle vs Merkur.
If you have big hands, then for sure the ‘R89 safety razor is a better option – and you should maybe consider the Grande version in this case. Personally – if this is your first safety razor, I would maybe have gone for the Edwin Jagger DE89 – good quality, cheaper vs Muhle, and with the same shave performance.
Muhle – A Quick Look at the Background
Mühle safety razors are being produced in Mühle’s factory in Stützengrün, a 30-minute drive south of Leipzig, Germany. Muhle started as a company that made high-end shaving brushes but has since then branched out into all kinds of wet-shaving accessories such as high-quality shave creams, stands, and double-edge razor blades.
Wet shaving has recently caught on like wildfire.
Many new companies and brands have popped up like weeds in the spring. However, even with the influx of the new reusable razor, and safety razor brands on the market, the company is still considered to be one of the best and most popular.
This is courtesy of the precise design and construction as well as its flawless chrome finishing on their machined safety razor. The fact that Mühle (means a “mill” in German), founded by Otto Johannes Müller in 1945, was built up in the ruins of war and has been in the business for the past 72 years is ample proof that they know their shave stuff.
I hope that my Muhle R89 review and buying guide has helped you in your decision in search of a safety razor that will fit your shave preferences.
Muhle R89 In this article, we do a Muhle R89 review – a double edge closed comb safety razor. We take a look at the standard, Twist and Grande version. Product Brand: MÜHLE Rasurkultur Product In-Stock: InStock Editor’s Rating:

It is perfect for persons who prefer a mild, but tight shave (especially beginners)
It is lightweight which is perfect if you are transitioning from cartridge razors to a safety razor Cons The two-piece Muhle Twist variation is quite expensive
Not the best choice for those that have a thick, tough beard

Mühle R89: Solid Performance, Excellent Value
Just about every list of top-rated mild razors will include the Mühle R89. I’ve admired the rose gold R89 model for years and finally decided to buy it. Here are my impressions of the razor, its relationship to the Edwin Jagger DE89, how it stacks up against another mild razor, and some buying advice. (The company uses capital letters–MÜHLE–for the brand name. I’m using a mixed case here for readability.)
Otto Johannes Müller founded the company as a shaving brush manufacturer in Germany in 1945 after World War II ended. The company survived the loss of its headquarters to fire in 1949 and expropriation by the former East German government in 1972. When the Berlin Wall collapsed in 1990, Hans-Jürgen Müller, Otto’s son, reacquired the company, which retained the Mühle logo and now operates as Hans-Jürgen Müller KG.
In 2008, the third Müller generation took the reins. Christian and Andreas Müller now manage the company, which is headquartered in Stützengrün. Mühle razors sell globally and the company operates several retail stores where customers can shop and shave. They also produce a semiannual glossy lifestyle magazine, 30 Grad.

The closed-comb, rose gold R89 that I bought is part of the Mühle Traditional series. According to the company’s website, it has a length of 94 mm (3.58”), head width of 41 mm (1.61”) and it weighs 64 grams (2.26 ounces).
My initial reactions to the razor were mixed. The online photos showed a light gold color but my model was definitely more rose gold than light gold, as the accompanying photo shows. To me, though, the rose gold seemed more vibrant and it was really quite striking. It’s a good-looking razor.
Second impression: This razor was very light. I have one other mild razor, the Feather AS-D2, which weighs about 90 grams, which is significantly heavier than the R89. I liked the R89’s balance but I wasn’t sure how the light weight would affect shaves. Build quality was excellent, although the handle’s texture was smoother than my other razors and I hoped that wouldn’t cause a grip problem when wet.
As of mid-November, the R89 base chrome model’s price online ranged from $39 to the mid-$40s. The rose gold model cost an extra $5 or so.
The Edwin Jagger DE89 Relationship
Occasionally I still see a question on shaving message boards asking if the R89 and the Edwin Jagger DE89 are the same razor. I asked Mühle’s media relation team to clarify this. Mühle’s response:
“The razor design was developed in 2007 in cooperation with Edwin Jagger.
Back then MÜHLE and Edwin Jagger joined forces for the development of several new products.
In the meanwhile MÜHLE modified the threaded pin on the top plate. It’s no longer made of zinc alloy but brass in order to make the screw more durable and prevent the thread from wearing off.”
To summarize: the razors share a design but do not share part-sourcing or manufacturing. The R89 is made in Germany, the DE89 is made in England.
Mild blades don’t work for me and I was concerned that a light, mild razor would not perform well, even with a sharp blade. With that prejudice influencing me, I underestimated the R89 and DE89 on the first shaves and applied too much pressure on the handle. That resulted in a trifecta of injuries: a nasty nick, a weeper and a patch of razor burn. Lesson learned and subsequent shaves with a light touch were irritation-free.
I used the R89 with Feather and Gillette Nacet blades for three-pass shaves over several weeks on one-, two- and three-day stubble. Stubble length didn’t affect performance or shaving comfort. The shaves were consistently very comfortable and DFS-quality. I have several spots where more aggressive razors leave my skin a little pinkish, but the R89 shaves did not aggravate those areas. The handle performed well and I did not need to use alum on my fingers to prevent slipping.
While the shaves were good, they weren’t BBS close, at least not by the cotton ball test, but that’s the same result I get with my other mild razor, a Feather AS-D2. I suspect that’s caused by my skin’s intolerance of against-the-grain strokes. I can go across the grain with no problem, but shaving against it causes irritation. The only way I can get to BBS is to dial up the aggressiveness on my Merkur Progress. If you can shave against the grain, you probably can get a BBS with the R89.
Edwin Jagger DE 89
I bought the DE89 knurled handle model (DE89KN14BL), which was close in size to the R89 handle. To compare their performances, I shaved with the blades on sequential days, divided shaves 50/50, and even alternated strokes but I could not distinguish between the razors. Everything I’ve written about the R89, except for color and handle texture, applies to the DE 89. Mark (@mantic59) reviewed the DE 89 here if you want more details on that razor.
The Feather AS-D2 is positioned as a high-end, very mild razor. The all-steel construction is rugged and in my experience, the razor delivers what it promises. But frankly, for a price starting at about $160, it should deliver the goods. I know there are more expensive razors but that’s a high price in my book. Sharpologist’s review of the Feather AS-D2 is here.
To my surprise, shaves with the R89 were barely distinguishable from those with the AS-D2. The razors’ ergonomics differ because the designs differ and the AS-D2’s cuts are quieter. If I had to grade the razors for shaving comfort and results, I’d give the R89 a 94 and the AS-D2 a 95 out of 100. But–and it’s a big but–the AS-D2 costs about four times as much as the R89. Even if you broke a couple of R89s, you’d still be ahead. Consequently, I’d rate the R89 as a much better value.
Which Model to Buy?
Most chrome and silver razors look a lot alike.
Muhle takes a different approach. They pair a small number of shaving heads with a plethora of handle sizes, styles and materials. They call it Rasurkultur, or shaving culture, and they treat brushes, razors and stands as lifestyle accoutrements. The company offers 10 series of razors, ranging from traditional metallic models to Meissen porcelain razor- and brush handles hand painted with Ming dragons (only $1,440 for the razor and silver tip badger brush set!). Spend some time browsing through their site and you’ll see impressive examples of design art meeting the art of shaving. I’m not normally a style guy, but I’m thinking the rose gold handle synthetic shaving brush paired with a nice stand could work on my Christmas wish list.
Here’s my R89-shopping advice. If you want a base model in chrome, run a web search for the lowest price. If you want a specific Muhle handle or set with the matching brush and stand, you can buy it through the company’s website. But if you don’t see a manufacturer’s handle that you like, you can buy the head separately and pair it with a handle from the major shaving retailers; links listed below. No matter how you put it together, I think you’ll find the R89 provides an excellent mild shave.
