    Default DE . . .

    Hello, Rometh:

    I suggest starting out with the Edwin Jagger L89 with the lined handle. It's a favorite of many here.

    Regards,

    When I use a DE I usually go to the Edwin Jagger L89 with the lined handle. I also like the Merkur 38 Barber Pole and Parker 45R. These last two are fairly heavy and the Parker is probably the most agressive of the three. Hope this helps.

    I use a Gillette Tech. It was $10, and it gives great shaves.

    I got the Merkur Classic Long Handle from SRD. I love it! It is heavy like a tractor, cheap and simple. I am impressed with DE shaves. (Get a brush and soap too.)

    I'll put my two cents in for a vintage Gillette Superspeed...they are easily available and very affordable.

    my vote gos to my Gillette fatboy this is a piece of machinery built to last. mine was made in 1958 and is showing no signs of age. and the shave is hard to tell from a str8 shave

    Merkur 34 HD. Nice, hefty and shaves well. Not too aggressive unless you choose an aggressive blade. I like mine with a Treet or Feather blade.
    Your going to get every DE under the sun recommended to you, because everyone has there favourites.

    I like the EJ89 All Chrome. No line for me. Also The Merkur 39C slant is very nice.
