    Congratulations, Wxman. That Edwin Jagger is a superb mid-range shaver with impeccable workmanship. It's an exceptionally fine Christmas gift. Well done.

    Thanks! Just had a shave with it, and it is a very different animal compared with my straights. I'm starting to get better with the straights, but I hacked my neck up pretty good in one spot with this one. Time for more learning!

    I actually cut myself more with a DE than I do with a straight. Consequently, I've gravitated exclusively to the straight.

    I'm still not nic free wi a strait yet, but a whole lot better than when I began. I won't give up in this though either...one day I'll have them both down and pick whatever I'm in the mood for that day.

    I use DE's on days when I don't have the time to shave with a straight razor.
    It's counterintuitive, but it's actually easier to cut yourself with a DE than a straight razor.
    The trick is to use very little pressure and a steep angle, that is almost flat against your face, with a DE.

    Congrats on the DE. I have used one for many years and continue to enjoy them when I feel the need to shave in the shower.

    Vry nice nice looking DE . Congratulations. I myself use a DE on my work days , since I am newer to straight razor shaving and much slower with a straight . I get a good shave with a DE using advanced techniques ( the gillette slide and buffing), but not as a good as a straight. I have to shave daily with a DE and only every other day with a straight. I use only feather blades; it costs more than other DE blades but it ia worth it when you compare the sharpness and quality you get with feather. I wish the Merkur 39C was made in an open comb; I prefer open comb DE's. I would like to try a slant , but will only do so if has an open comb. Again congratulations.
