I have been getting some fabulous shaves from my 1940's Gillette Tech with Feather blades. My one issue is that the handle on the tech is too short for my liking.

Here is a link to some Mr-Razors pictures that show the type of handle I have. http://mr-razor.com/Rasierer/Tech/1946%2...20Tech.JPG

What options do I have for a replacement handles?

You have lots of options.

Most modern European razors have thread pitch compatible with it, that also opens up UFO handles. The Euro thread would be a bit sloppy for my sensibilities, but they will work. It's not like you're going to be torqueing then down. I don't know of any modern US made handles that won't fit it, Tradere, and Weber are 2, I know there are others. Someone will need to help further though.

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I have used longer handles from UFO, Tradere, Ikon, Merkur, Griest, Weber, Feather and BRW with my Tech heads and they all work really well with them.
