    Great razor for making your own “frankenrazor” Works great with my MR6 Handle, then put the Maggard head on the Merkur handle for a travel razor! Cheaper than two Merkur razor’s for sure.
    Handle is a little small, but has a decent heft, head is just barely on the aggressive side of gentle.

    Beautiful, well balanced razor that gives a smooth shave. Great grip and feel in the hand. I get fantastic shaves when paired with a milder blade such as a Derby (YMMV).

    Very nice razor. One of the mildest DE razors I have used. It would make a great razor for someone new to wet shaving. The handle is short but gives a good non slip grip.
