    Finally pulled the trigger picked up a brass Karv and retired my 1922 Bostonian as my head shaver.
    3” handle with OC-C, SB-D, E and F plates set.
    3.5” Rod George handle.
    Next will be more plates, the 4” handle and maybe the larger top cap to complete it as a set.
    I love this system. And customer service was above and beyond.

    A whole lot of brass there.

    This has serious heft to it and sure isn’t slipping in the hand. Balance is dead on.

    The picture does not does not do justice to the difference. The Bostonian has served me incredibly well but it deserves to retire in style.

    Shaves like a dream. It’s efficiency and weight glide through days of growth.

    Any of you gents have a brass Colonial General that you could throw a Karve handle on so that I can take a look and see if they match up okay? Recently picked one up and I like the stock handle look, but need some type of grip. Thanks
