    I received my Above the Tie R1 today from . I was excited thinking I was getting a stock R1. Boy was I surprised. I missed the fact that this beast had a Maggards handle. I'm a serious fan of short heavy handles and this one is the real deal. As you can see, the handle itself weighs in a a whopping 102g (Maggards advertises it at 98g). I have a crazy feeling that this thing is going to shave wonderfully and feel good in my hand while doing it.

    Shaved with it last night and the handle is everything that I ever wanted in a razor handle, and the head (loaded with a fresh Feather blade) shaved great. The razor is very efficient. I shaved about 11pm last night. It is now 7:26am and I have NO stubble at all. I'm still as smooth as if I had shaved this morning.

    Great handle. I am a big fan, too. I have one as well. I put it on my Maggard slant.
