Edwin Jagger Mach 3 Compatible Razor at a glance:
|Country of Origin:||England|
This safety razor has a chrome-plated collar, blade head and end cap, and is available in four colors with a silver Edwin Jagger logo. It is well balanced for a close, safe shave and is handmade in Sheffield, England, the home of stainless steel. The razor measures 4” long, with a 3.75” handle length.
This razor can only be used with Gillette Mach 3 Turbo disposable heads (View Price on Amazon), so it isn’t as eco-friendly as a double-edged safety razor like those that Rockwell and Merkur offer.
Edwin Jagger vs. Rockwell vs. Merkur
The Edwin Jagger Razor can only be used with Gillette Mach 3 Turbo disposable heads, which means it isn’t as eco-friendly as the double-edged safety razors from Rockwell and Merkur. That said, it is a much more eco-friendly option than entirely disposable razors and may be a helpful ‘gateway’ razor for anyone thinking about a full safety razor.
While Gillette claim that their Mach 3 blades offer a close, comfortable shave, most people who shave with a safety razor beg to differ. All in all, the Merkur or Rockwell are the best options around for eco-friendly razors that offer ergonomic, stylish, and comfortable shaving.
