    Cool #26 tech set Gary! I'm curious to your thoughts on the feel & weight of the two piece handle. Looks awesome :)

    thank you Mike.i would say quite similar to the fat handle in feel,a little more head heavy as the base the end of the handle is quite light and thin walled.

    Very cool Gary..I was eyeing one of those set recently. I really like the Bakelite stand too. Does it have a way to remove the discarded blades on the bottom of the stand?

    yes ,the bottom slides out should you want to use it.though i don't put used blades in mine.it just stores the razor..
