Full circle again for me. The more razors I have used the more I admire the design of the R89; had to have a back-up and liked the look of the resin handled version - R108. If I knew what I knew now I would have stopped at the R89 . It's ubiquity as a first razor I suspect means that it gets overlooked in terms of how good it really is. Edwin Jagger and Andreas Muhle created a little bit of magic when they collaborated, me thinks.
