Also, if you are at a craft show or something of the sorts, there are the craft made razors. Its a 3 piece DE with a lathe turned handle. The head is similar to a Merkur, and very gentle. The handles are a little longer than the Super Speed, and they are a little heavier. Also a good choice for a beginner wet shaver, as long as you don't get careless there are no cuts or weeps. With the handles being hand turned it is unlikely that you will find someone with one similar. sometimes you might even be able to get a brush and stand to match.
