Back to the shorter handled ones on this razor. Razors for men don't need to have long handles as it only manoeuvers around one's face. The need for a longer handle is a personal choice, all the work is done with the first 65 mm of the handle, the longer stem will influence balance and the way is is supported in an upright position. Most men are comfortable with most razors, regardless weight or length, but some certainly feels better in hand that others. This 3-piece razor has some nice knurling on the handle, and the recessed ring on the bottom of the handle adds extra control on one's ring finger. Nice and heavy for a shorty at 95 grams, standing 86 mm short.
