Having bought a Parker with a head that must have been designed during the French Revolution and an open comb Muhle that gives me nicks and weepers, I found that I could swap these heads for a Jagger closed comb - much better suited to my six day old DE practice - and shave relatively closely and all but bloodlessly. Thing is, I love the handles from the razors whose heads are just way too aggressive for me (at this stage anyway) and don't want to risk a mix-up with swapping heads back and forth.
As the Jagger closed comb razors seem best suited to my current ability, does anyone know where I can buy Jagger heads (without a handle)? I guess it doesn't have to be a Jagger per se, just a closed comb and as mild as a Jagger. I await a reply from the Jagger factory but I'm not holding my breath. These are all three piece razors I'm asking about.
Seems wasteful to buy even the cheapest complete razor just to keep the head.
Tried a tech head? Cheap as chips and very mild. You will be able to pick one up here.
Welcome, by the way.
