    I was curious as to our member's favourite razor handle(s)? Generally handles can offer various weight/balance options, grip and style. Keeping it to a maximum of three, what are your favoured handles?

    Many modern SS handles simply add weight, making balance worse. My two favorite vintage handles are the Star DE and Durham Duplex Dubarry.

    I only have 2:

    The Blackbird 100mm which stays on the Blackbird.

    And the Ikon OSS (Polished version, not the original satin one) which is a perfect match for the SS General head and EJ89.

    Weber Bulldog, ATT Bamboo and any of those generic, "fatty" handles.

    I like light razors and consequently light handles. I also like smaller diameter handles that I hold between my finger-tips and therefore feel more precise:
    Blackbird 85mm
    Stork Aristocrat titanium
    Stork Diplomat titanium

    Anything larger than a 13mm diameter or longer than 90mm is to clunky for me.

    These are my current 3 favourite handles that I own. I do love unique razor handles.

    Also as an honorary mention I do love the patterned 1912 SE handle!

    Any handle that has real tool cut knurling as opposed to the impressed variety such as found on the Muhle R41 as an example. Preferably with a diameter of 0.5 inch/13 mm.
