As you already know,if you have been in this forum for over a month,I love Edwin Jagger/Muhle safety razors.For me,are the best shaving safety razors,longside some Merkurs.
Thanks to a fellow member here,I had the chance to put my hands over this new 2012 safety razor from Edwin Jagger : the 87811 with octogonal handle and,supodsely,glod plated,but I doubt it.

Real gold plated or not,this razor is a beauty : the new octagonal handle is perfect for a secure grip while shaving and has a good balance for its weight (60 g).

Im afraid I haven't been able to reflec the real beauty of this razor with my pics,but I can tell you that its a gorgeous one,and,like the other Edwin Jagger/Muhle,provides me smooth,close shaves.

Edwin Jagger advertises the razor as having 23 carat gold plated parts, so presumably the razor has real gold plating. It is certainly a beautiful razor.

Tieste, how do you like the feel, weight, and balance of the octagonal handle in comparison to other EJ handles?

Very nice razor, Teiste Cool

I might give one of those octogonal handles a try, one of these days. At first I didn't like their look; but now, after seeing your photos, they seem intriguingly tempting Rolleyes

The feel is slightly different,but not by much,and the handle is easy to hold (better grip?maybe) but the balance is the same than the DE87/DE86 razors that I have.

I see some US retailers have it, but what about BullGoose?

Did your friend suggest where to buy?

Also Teiste, I'm always impressed by your photographs. Especially the depth of field you are able to achieve when photographing macro subjects. Do you use a light box? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I use available light and hand hold as I'm without tripod or lighting equipment. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Especially if they don't involve a great investment as my budget won't stretch (my wife's medication is really eating into my wage at the moment).
