Hello. Since my Edwin Jagger 89 DE is broken, I will buy a second razor. I was thinking of a Muehle R89 or a Parker 26C. Any suggestions?

Between those two I would go with the Muhle R89.  It shares the same head as your Edwin Jagger DE89.

A third candidate that you may wist to audition is the Bevel razor (but the razor only, not with its accessory subscription plan).

Feather AS-D2 or D1, with a high probability that you'll never seek suggestions for a third safety razor, (provided you're not one of those who can't get a good shave with it or suffers from RAD). Wink

The Merkur 34C and Feather AS-D2 are both good choices.  The Feather is in a much higher price category.

I have the EJ DE89LBL, the Merkur 23c & 34C and they have all been relegated to the Guest Bathroom to be pretty accessories.

Two other modern razors did end up in my bathroom to get used, the Weishi 9306 and the Feather Popular.  Yeah, surprised me too but those really low end generic Super Speed clones performed way better and were way more comfortable than the brighter shinier European razors.

Don't rule out vintage razors - Tech, Fatboy, etc. There are good shavers to be had out there at reasonable prices.

I own a Muehle R89 as well as a Trumper Warwick but I retired both of them once I purchased an Above The Tie.  It has been almost three years.

I either own or have owned the EJ89. Merkur34c, Merkur 37c Slant, Parker 26c, and an ATT S2.   After switching to straights for the last year I decided to give DE's another shoot and purchased a Parker Varient Adjustable. It shaves as well if not better than anything else in the den and I am really digging the adjustability.   For $57 its tough to beat IMHO

The Muhle shaves the same as your EJ so I'd mix it up. My second razor is a vintage Gillette. I like the New LC, but an adjustable is good to try. Both in saying are less than $30 on the auction bay.

Get the other kind.  You have a screw-top one:  so, why not try a butterfly one?

This is wise advice. Go with something different. A vintage Super Speed may be just what the doctor ordered! They come in a number of different flavors Smile
