    I just bought a Edwin Jagger chrome plated and lined. All the reviews raved about it. It came with 5 blades and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I highly recommend it. There was a sale over at soap.com and it came $27 with free 2 day shipping. I guarantee you will be completely satisfied and then some! Let me know if you want the coupon code for 20% off and free shipping. The price is a steal but you can't go wrong with any of the other De shavers that you mentioned

    Being an owner of a Muhle (R106), I can honestly say that they are fantastic razors. They are built very well and I think anyone would be happy with one. But moving away from that brand, I can also state that theer are many fine vintage Gillettes. Amongst my favorite are the English Rockets/Aristocrat Jr. I have owned several rockets and all but one have delivered excellent shaves, better than the American Gillettes. Schick also made good DE razors, these may be harder to come by (for me at least), but they do an excellent job also.

    I don't know if this is an option or not, but SE razors are also very good choices. They are sometimes cheaper than vintage DE's (assunming you would consider a vintage razor) and in my experiece, the shaves from an SE razor last longer than those from the DE. Of these, you may consider a Schick Injector, I have tried several models and found the "G" to be the best (Or a Feather injector if you find one, they are amazing). Another option is a GEM razor, I have tried/owned several and my personal favorite is the Open Comb Micromatic as it is aggressive, but mild on the face. Or the Valet Autostrop is another SE option. I only use Feather blades with mine, but these too are often overlooked, I find, when they do an excellent job.

    Anyway, good luck with your search, and I hope you find one that you will enjoy!
