The MUHLE R89 is a classic wet shave closed comb safety razor. Famed for their precision metal workmanship and finely etched designs these are very high quality razors. These razors come packed in a presentation box and makes an ideal gift.

Firstly I have to say this Razor looks great and the minute you pick it up you know it is quality. It comes in a nice presentation box and would make a great gift. It came with a few sample blades. I tried Derby blades first and it gives a great shave. No going back to disposables. I'm a convert.

Okay, I'm new to safety razors and this is my first so I can't compare with other safety razors. This however was the best shave of my life, I had high expectations but I'm still in shock at how close and comfortable the shave was and I suffer from razor burn and it was not irritated at all during the shave. For the first time in my adult life, I think I will soon be razor burn free :)

The MÜHLE R89 is a great looking safety razor, sits perfectly in the hand and shaves really well. Very gentle to the skin but still provides excellent shave with no boring irritations. Highly recommended. Best regards to the Shaving.ie crew.

I hated shaving. HATED. I was using the famous brands, with multiple blades for supposed comfort. I read a bit online about DE blades and my wife bought me the R89 as a birthday gift. Simply, it works. Much less skin irritation, much closer shaves (after some practice!). Red bumps? Gone. I highly recommend this as a starter closed comb razor - good balance, clean shave.

I could not be happier with my Muhle R89. The blade sits perfectly on the head and the shave is so smooth. Two passes with the Muhle is all I need. The first with the grain, and the second against the grain. My skin is smooth, and with zero irritation. The R89 is a lovely razor that I would recommend to beginners and pros alike. The only pet peeve I have is mine had a little scuffed about 2mm in diameter on the chrome head. It really does not bother me, but I thought I should mention it since most people have stated theirs had flawless finishes. The handle is beautiful and even though the grip has a light texture to it, it still stays in my palm perfectly. I also read some stating that their razor felt light and had a hollow handle. I am not sure if Muhle got wind of that and changed their design, but my razor does not have a hollow handle and has what appears to be a brass insert. The weight feels perfect. The razor is perfect. Shaving.ie is perfect.

After 14 years of using cartridge razors (and really not enjoying the experience), i read up a bit about safety razors and decided to take the plunge with this. The razor is both a fantastic looking implement with something of a timeless quality to its aesthetics, and a joy to use. Once i made the initial adjustment to my shaving technique that was needed in order to make the switch from cartridge razors, the R89 felt perfectly natural to hold, and with its wonderfully balanced weight (and the right blade of course - but part of the fun is discovering what blades are right for you!) gave me the best shave of my life. The build quality is of such a level that it gives the impression that with a bit of care, the razor will last for decades. And such is my enjoyment using this, I fully intend to still be using it in a few decades time! (brilliant site and service too).

Great service from Shaving.ie. The razor looks and feels well balanced well. Just can’t believe the price! Had my first shave with the Derby blade, next time i will try the Astra. The razor again really great i was thinking this or the EJ89L I went for this no regret, my advice GET IT! (would be good to get a few blades with razors just to try)

I am totally new to wet shaving, having used multi blade cartridges for over 30 years. What a revelation! I bought this razor and the 50 sample pack of blades. So far I like the Astra Superior blades the most. Couple of small nicks but also bought a styptic pencil so no problem. Also use Proraso pre shave and shaving soap and a badger hair brush. Getting the best shaves ever. Also great site with first class service and delivery.

One of the most beautiful chrome finishes in the current selection of DE razors. I obtained a BBS in two passes and without any irritation with a Personna blade. This is a very good razor and I am very happy with my purchase from an excellent site.

This is my first safety razor and I'm very satisfied with its performance. The design is just gorgeous!

For anyone taking up DE shaving this is one of the go-to razors. The R89 is perfectly balanced. Combined with the Feather blades, the R89 has blessed me with BBS shaves with no nicks and cuts. I highly recommend it!

Fast delivery! Responsive staff member! First of all, the Mühle R89 is a very beautiful object: Nice finish, looks solid... Once in my hand, the razor has a well balanced weight. I use Gillette blue extra edge which globally fits to most of the people. The razor is smooth, safe and efficient. This is my first Double Edge razor and it is at least better than what I used before: Gillette Mach 3 or Fusion... It is definitely worth it!! Mühle R89, What else?! Thank you.

This razor is really great. The finish is very neat and the packaging elegant :) Definitely worth a try gentlemen!

My first venture into DE shaving was with the Mühle R89 - thoroughly impressed - heavy, quality feel. I now get up earlier in the morning to give myself plenty of time to enjoy a proper shave! Really smooth, much better than the Mach 3's I used previously - no comparison, much cheaper too. Prompt service.

This was my 2nd DE Razor and I absolutely love it! Great performance, smooth like you wouildn't believe it with the sharpest blades. Great shop as well, thanks again!

I have just recently ditched the Gillette Fusions and goop-in-a-can setup for a cream, brush and double-edge regime. I did heaps of research into razors for newbies and it came down to either the R89 (same head as the EJ89) or the Merkur HD. I chose the Muhle and have to say it is awesome in every way. The craftsmanship is fantastic, the weight seems perfect and it gives me an incredibly close and smooth shave with an Astra Superior Platinum loaded. I don't see any need to buy another razor - this one IMHO is all I'd ever want.

I believe the Mühle line of safety razors are the best in current production. The head is very accurately made and compliments a wide range of blades. This is my new number one safety razor in front of old Gillette’s.
