I have been using my EJ DE89 for a month now and I cannot say enough good things about it. I am getting better than a DFS with 3 passes; if I want BBS all I need to do is a little touch up. No nicks, no irritation, just great shaves. I have been using Derbys and Feathers. I now have two of these razors, one for travel and one for home. As has been said by others, this is a RAD killer. I have stopped rotating through my other razors and have to decide whether I am going to keep them or sell them. Certainly none of my other razors shave as well as this EJ DE89.
