    Default Edwin Jagger Loxley

    Gentlemen:

    The Edwin Jagger Loxley is about as perfect a double edge razor as possible — for me. The weight, length and balance help tuck the razor in my hands as if it were designed for me. The length is somewhere between that of the "barley" and the "Chatsworth," and the weight slightly lighter than that on the "barley." Most of the weight is in the shave head, which I prefer. The shave head is the famous 89, not too aggressive and not too mild, but somewhere in the middle, which I find ideal.

    I think I have gone through just about every modern DE made: Joris (a 7-day set), FaTip, all the ikons, all the Webers, the Titan and the Atlas, Feather 1 and 2, most Merkurs, Cadet, Weishi, Muhle and . . . Well, that's all I can think of right now. And, oh, the wide range of Edwin Jagger razors. All have been quality and with distinct characteristics. The Weber for me was the best shaver among the stainless steel models, although the finish somewhat crude next that of the others.

    (I also have played with a wide range of the Gilletes and liked most, especially the Aristocrat. A Fatboy, an Aristocrat and a Red Tip are saved for each of my young grandsons. The Gillette is another topic.)

    All those modern razors are gone. All but the Edwin Jaggers. At one time, when shaving with the open combs, I sold all my closed comb razors, including the Edwin Jaggers. Now I have returned to the Edwin Jagger as the ideal DE razor for me. My small collections includes the "barley," the faux ivory, the faux ivory Plaza and the faux ivory Loxley. I think I'll stop there for a while.

    The Loxley has been a revelation. I love the looks, the balance and the shave. You can't ask for anything more from a double edge razor.

    Obie, I don't think I would feel comfortable shaving with an appliance named after Robin Hood. I'd be worried about who is getting robbed there.

    Oh no, you wouldn't, Spendur, not if you were getting a lap dance later from MaryAnn.

    This EJ head is one of my beloved Non-Open Comb
    The handle is a very "aristocrat" one
    Enjoy it.
