The EJ and I've had both of them.  I like TTO razors and years ago I ordered the Parker.   I returned it because I found the quality, fit and finish to be poor.  I'll stay with vintage Gillette TTO's.

By the way, it's great to see your first posts!

Edwin Jagger based on owning one and a purely emotional dislike for butterflies ( My Father and older Brother used them and Old Spice exclusively). I must speak up for Parker. Yes, first efforts were miserable junk. Current production is VERY good and you would be hard pressed to find a better selection for the money.

Edwin Jagger all the way. It's a very nice mild razor, especially for those that look for a smooth and efficient daily shave. I highly recommend it. There is no way you'll get disappointed.


About the Parker, I haven't tried any. That's because they have a very bad quality control. The finish of the razors is not at all good, especially comparing to a razor like Ediwn Jagger which has a flawless and shiny chrome finish.

I possess a Parker 24C opencomb. I own the Jagger 86 with faux ivory handle. Again, Parker started badly with junk. They sorted out their QC and they stand equal  to any name in their low, and attractive price range. I personally think  Jagger  the better choice for what I assume is a first buy? Some vintage Gillette
butterflys are highly sought after and well regarded shavers. Others are  hard scrabble farm mule drawn plows. What Parker has managed with their's is unknown to me.

I own and use both. I prefer neither. Both are good razors. I like the head on the DE89 and the weight and length of the 99R.

no neither razor is aggressive. 

Cuts are a result of improper use or technique or lack of focus. Not the razor. You don't blame kitchen knives do you?

both razors are very capable of smooth shaves.
