There are two versions of this razor. One is the 44C black resin handle (2011) and the other is the chrome-matte handle version that started in 2012. That is the one I bought and have been enjoying. It has the famous two piece closed comb head that is the same as other Merkur razors which have been around for years. The handle has the identical finish as the Vision and Futur Satin razors and is a delight to hold. Its 3.75" long and with the head 4". The razor is perfectly balanced and doesn't feel head heavy. The shave is close and extremely smooth but not aggressive. I really like this razor and will match it to any EJ razor for quality.

Looks intriguing. As a two-piece how does it open? I've liked the recent Merkur designs.
