    I recently bought a Merkur bakelite and I'm very happy with it.

    The knurling on the handle is actually much nicer than it came out in the pics.

    That is a very thick, long & heavy handle that I got off of a $10 ebay razor about 6 years ago. Several other members here also bought the same razor just for the handle.

    I thought that handle looked familiar. I got one of those Utopia razors, too. The handle is great, but the head on mine was junk. The dealer refunded $5 and I kept the razor. I have used the handle with other heads with great success. I called the razor the Quarter Pounder. It was 4 oz.

    Yes that was it the "Utopia" I never cared for the head either the blade alignment was very poor...Luckily I only purchased it for the handle.

    My fav shaving system is the combo of modern SE with AC guarded blade.
    For sure, my preferred is Colonial Razors The General V1 Aluminium with Kai ProTouch.
    In this pic all my favs.
