Stainless Steel DE Razor Handle

305 in stock

Product Description

The MR5 has a unique, grip-friendly handle that is super comfortable to use.  The two grips are positioned in the two most common spots that people use when they shave, depending on whether they like to hold the razor close to the head or in the middle of the handle.  It feels awesome in the hand and I’m very excited to be able to offer it.

Handle weight: 82g

Handle Length: 3.34″

The finish of the MR5is a satin matte stainless steel.  It won’t flake or chip like Chrome could over the years. There is no head included with this product.

The knurling is more accurate and defined than our previous brass handles.

Handle Compatibility:
The MR5 fits most Double edge razor heads that have flat spots at least 11mm wide.  A few heads (Weber, Gillette NEW) have smaller areas available for flush mounting a handle    Please keep this in mind when purchasing this item.

As a final thought – Try not to compare this razor to your $150 IKON when you receive it.  Shave with it, enjoy it, and remember, this is a budget razor that probably cost less than you spent on lunch last Tuesday.  It is cheap enough to buy one for all of your friends and help expand our community.  This is the reason we’ve made these available and the reason for their great success!

    Comfortable and heavy, just like I like my handles. One of my favorites in my collection.

    My favourite handle.
    Can’t suggest any improvement to it, as it is perfect as is.
    Thanks Maggard

    I paired this handle with the Satin Mongoose and it’s amazing! Certainly my favorite handle. Had Delta Echo paint the two and it’s killer. I wish I could upload a picture.

    I love this handle. The weight, the size and ease of use are outstanding. It is so easy to grip and feels amazing in my hand. I have small hands and this fits me perfectly. I paired it with an open comb(v2) from Maggards and couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

    There is no shortage of good press for the MR 5 out there in the shaving world. It is a great handle. It comes in at a price that is hard to understand. For the amount of material and machine work involved in this handle, you simply cannot fault Maggard. It is the prettiest handle they make, to boot (these things being subjective). I find that, in the act of shaving, I still prefer the MR 11, as it feels a little more maneuverable. If you like a heavy handle, this has you covered. At the price of these handles, there’s no real reason to pick up a few examples that best suit your tastes and give them a whirl. I have not encountered a bad one among them.

    This handle is a great deal for this price. Machining was top notch. Perfect length and weight. The finger grooves really added to the grip of the razor. I would recommend thais handle to any wet shaver.

    Outstanding handle from Maggard Razors !! Nice fit and finish and fits my hand like a glove. If these Maggard handles stay at this price range they will sell thousands of them. How about a single edge razor head with a cool new handle ?? Keep up the very professional customer service and double quick shipping !!

    I made sure not to read a single review of this handle before I wrote mine, so I apologize if I repeat what has already been said. I got this in the mail earlier this week and have shaved with it only a few times so far, and here is what I have to say: First thing to impress me about the MR5 is the size and shape. This was the reason I bought it. It is the perfect length for my taste and the shape is so satisfying for easy maneuvering and solid grip. Next, the weight is a lot heavier than I was expecting, which made me happy. It balances out my ixon X3 really well and it has highly improved the quality of my shaves. for the price this is a steal. buy one! You’ll love it. If you have slightly larger hands or prefer a handle on the longer side, try the Ikon Bamboo instead for a similar experience with more room for grip.

    This is an amazing razor handle, very pleasant to grip, well designed and extremely precisely and nicely made. I am very happy that I decided to buy a SS razor handle from Maggards. The service of this company is simply brilliant, and the overseas delivery extremely fast. Certainly not my last purchase, many thaks!

    Until now the MR11 and the MR20 have been my favorite handles. But after trying the MR5 on my V2OC and V3 heads I now have another favorite handle. So much so that I’ll be ordering two more to use on my 3 favorite heads. R41, V2OC and the V3. The V2OC has become my favorite. I thank Maggards for having such great products and service!

    This has become my favorite handle. After ordering one I just ordered 3 more. Whoever designed it must have had my hand.

    Got my MR5 handle earlier this week and it is great. I put it on a Mongoose satin head and the combination is perfect. Thanks Brad and Casie!

    What can I say? This quickly became my favorite handle. Not only does it look totally cool it feels great in my hand when I am shaving. I can shave with complete confidence when I use it. The knurling gives optimal grip and the weight is awesome. There is never any need to add pressure when using this handle. Paired with the V3a head I now have the best razor that you can get for under $30. I would put it up against most of the expensive razors out there.

    Probably the best handle in the line-up. Use it on all the MR heads, plus my iKons, Mühle, and 3 piece vintage. So comfortable and balanced, and fits your grip like a glove for detail work. Very, very nice. I challenge you to find a better handle this intuitive at this price.

    Tried this handle today with one of the three heads (v3) I purchased last week here (v3, v3a and v2 OC bundle) I am in love with this handle, the heft and balance it provides is exceptional. BBS shaves on my head and face with only two passes. The quality exceeded my expectations by a mile. Thank you Maggard Razors for you’re excellent products and customer service. You have a customer for life and soon will be ordering the MR3 handle.

    I ordered this handle to use with my Gillette Tech razor head to add a little heft. I must say that this handle exceeded my expectations and for my four months experience in wet shaving using Merkur And Edwin Jagger and vintage Gillette razors this has added a new tool/instrument for me to add to my daily rotations. This is a superb handle. Thank you Maggard and an always great customer service. Fast and efficient

    I am really pleased with this handle. It is very well designed and fits my hand perfectly. I use it with a Muhle head and the extra weight of this handle works perfectly with that head. I also love the way that this handle’s matte satin finish complements the excellent chrome finish on the Muhle. Recommended.

    I had my eye on this handle since it was first available, and finally ordered it as a “change of pace” handle for my Feather AS-D2 (it is around 20-25 grams heavier than the stock handle). I hesitated because I was a little concerned that it might just be gimmicky and might also force my hand into an un-natural grip. Not the case at all. The added weight has made my AS-D2 even better (more efficient) and the grip is a very natural one.

    As usual, customer service was outstanding. I emailed before ordering to ask if they could tell me if it would fit the AS-D2 head, and Brad quickly replied that he tried a few handles on an AS-D2 head and it would fit. Then he went the extra mile and offered to fill the order himself to make sure that I got an MR5 handle that does fit.

    I think this will be my new handle for the AS-D2, and I may use the stock handle for a change of pace.

    Love the handle and the service that Maggard offers. Thanks!

    I purchased the MR5 razor on a lark a few months ago. I was immediately impressed by the weight and feel of the razor. I found the head’s alignment issue a major problem for me as I am blind. I put my Edwin Jagger R89 head on the MR5 handle and found the perfect razor!
    The knurling provides excellent grip without using ANY pressure, and the diameter and weight provide the perfect feel in the hand. I find that no matter how I hold the razor, I have absolute control over the razor. I can use the lightest pressure when shaving sensitive areas -for my face it’s the upper lip.
    I HIGHLY recommend this handle. At the price, you can’t lose. As soon as I submit this review, I’m ordering the MR8 handle to pair with a Muhle head!
