How do they compare as far as mildness? Or the way they shave?

I found the EJ/Muhle razors to be milder than the Feather.

The Feather is my all time favourite razor and the level of aggressiveness is spot on for me.

not sure if it's milder or not, but it's a better razor and shave at least for me.

i sold my 89's after dialing in the feather. it's near impossible to get an irritating shave and cut yourself with the feather, yet it cuts smooth and delivers a DFS or BBS every time.

I have a DE87 that I use when I want to take a break from my Schick Injectors, but someday when my ship comes in, I would like to own one of the Feather razors. Just a classy looking razor.

Everytime I think about buying one, I stop and think how many Semogue brushes I could buy with that amount of money. Thumbsup

they seem to be easy sells if you don't like it, with little $ lost.

they also turn up used on other sites, sometimes near new (3-4 shaves in) for $140-150 shipped, but they go fast.

Gentlemen,
The Feather and the Edwin Jagger 89 razors are two distinct shaves. I have both (about a dozen EJ razors in different models) and take each for what it is and try not to compare the two. Both give me a superb shave in their own way.

That is good to know. Is the feather the milder of the 2?
