Came across this handle yesterday at a farmers market and plan to use with my DE89 head as I like the added length and weight. The handle is 3 7/8 inches long and weighs in at 73 grams. Any idea who manufactured this and there is no markings on this handle.

It looks just like the Weber classic handle(made in USA). Appears to have similar weight and length. If it is a Weber it is 316 marine stainless. Congratulations its beautiful.

Given the length and weight it looks like a Parker 91R handle but the end has three ringlets not two like the Parker.

My thought too when I spotted it at the market but when I got home, I then noticed that the middle ring is slightly thinnner than the one above and below.

I believe I just found it: Pilot Endeavor. Tried handle this morning with my DE89 head and for me, a major difference in quality of shave the added weight provided. Original DE89L 62gm with this handle 102.2 gm. This handle weighs one gram more than my Tradere handle that I use with my R41 open comb. Definitely a keeper for me.

"Pilot "Endeavor" Heavy Duty Double Edge Razor - Nothing can beat the original safety razors with their replaceable double-edged blades that provide a smooth, clean shave. The Pilot "Endeavor" Heavy Duty Double Edge Razor is all metal - genuine brass frame with nickel/chrome plating. Perfect for both new and expert wet shavers, this razor provides an incredibly smooth shave when coupled with Feather Hi-Stainless razor blades.

Handle Length: 4.00 inches
Total Length: 4.375 inches
Weight: 3.7 ounces
