    I think the handle of KCG is a shame !!!
    Totally not balanced for the head.

    With a light one, King C. Gillette razor is a nice daily shaver.
    Exactly as the "original", with exactly the same geometry.
    I'm speaking of Edwin Jagger DE89 / Muehle R89.

    Here the FrankenRazor Allocco Blu:
    • KCG head, 32g
    • Focus Tritok Blue handle, 30g

    I really love its balance.

    With right handle, not that bad this King C. Gillette.
    Same standard geometry of Edwin Jagger DE89 / Muehle R89.
    Just a bit less effective, but enough for my daily BBS.
    As alway, the comfort is super.

    Here a little comparison by me. (link)
    I was wrong, It's NOT exactly as DE89 / R89.

    I’m not one of those measuring guys, but they look pretty close to me.
    I’d bet that they were made in the same factory.

    Yes, they're both mild razors.
    But shave differently.
    Use link.

    Careful and watch your step...........Thread Resurrection in progress :D Forgot I had this thing I picked up when the prices dropped to $15. Not bad for the price but I'd like more knurling on the handle which is slick where my grip is at times.

    Matt at Razor Emporium just did a video on the kit. He said the razor was a decent mild razor for a newbie, but wasn't crazy about the rest of the set other than its potential for pulling people into the hobby.
