    Balance wise, the 3.25 is the sweet spot.
    It is not lightweight at all!

    How can you do that? You have to leave on the bathroom counter so you can look at or you could use it for a paper weight on your desk. The supermodel has to be seen. The Wolf (man) is getting hungry isn't it?

    No it will go in a the razor case on the shelf. I haven't decided what's next yet.

    Awesome shave this morning! If I was forced to use one razor and one soap, it would be the Karve and Murphy & McNeil soap. This is a sweet set up. A match made in heaven for sure. Y'all have a great day.[​IMG]

    The brush and Karve are a perfect match Danny.

    Thanks Clint! I would love to have a brass razor handle that matched the Karve razor handle. I would love the see Karve produce that.

    could a machine shop engrave your existing handle?

    That is an interesting thought. If I were to go that route I would just have a solid piece of brass machined. My father has a small metal lathe but I have no idea on how to turn the design in the handle. It would probably be done the way you cut threads but that is above me. There is no telling what a machine shop would charge either.

    worth checking into,its not cast in so it must be cnc'd on the karve handle..a matching brush handle would be a hot ticket..
