The DE6 sports an aluminium billet that has a pattern brushed into the handle in a diagonal pattern, quite pretty if you ask us. The razor head is mildly aggressive. It is imported from China but certainly a very good component of this razor. It is similar (if not exactly the same) as the razor heads used on the Bluebeard's revenge cutlass razor, and by Maggards for some of their in house razors, both are well reviewed internationally available razors. This is head is one of two I use most often, and I must admit I enjoy it thoroughly.
