I am pretty sure that the whole EJ line uses the same head. I started off with a EJ89L, while I can't say I never lost any blood to it. I can say it was a heck of a razor and I that I miss it, I gave it away to a friend that was starting out with DE shaving. I have been eying up the EJ89 barley chrome. I am going to have to order some more blades soon so I may break down and get the razor too just to make it to the free shipping mark.
