    I’ve always thought the 1914 Ever-Ready is one of the finest shaving SEs out there but that handle is so small. I have an extra user grade one that jumped right out at me. Perfect choice for testing out how a different handle can make a difference. So, I decided to use if for my first test of the TAH - Tom’s Adjustable Handle. Here’s some pics comparing the weight and length:

    I decided to put it at the shortest length but before shaving with it I tried holding it at different lengths. This is a very solid handle and well made. However, at some point the length allows a little play and is probably going to be counter-productive. But, this would be a very long handle at that point since you can see it’s a decent length even at it’s shortest.

    Anyhow, I did the first pass on the right side with the traditional handle. Wow, I forgot how much I like the 1914. I then used the adaptor screw to attach the TAH for the left side. Wow and wow - even better. In fact, it was so good I forgot to try adjusting the length. It was as good as it gets. I think the added heft was part of that happy result and I know @twhite is working on a handle with adjustable weight so you can bet I’ll sign up for that should/when it sees the light of day. :happy088:

    At this point I can only think of two suggestions - one, for purely aesthetic reasons make a version in stainless steel to match most of the older SEs out there. The other would be to include extra adaptor screws. I can see where I would want to have the heads pre-loaded with an adaptor screw to quickly accept a TAH. That would simplify things in the den for sure.

    Net net, this is a very nice accessory and I can see how a lot of shavers would really appreciate it. I joined the pass-around mostly out of curiosity but now I’m sold on the utility! :happy036:
