I made this handle to fit my EJ DE89 and I shaved with it for the first time on Saturday. I used an Astra SP blade and Nivea Sensitive Skin canned goop (don't knock it till you try it ) . I was sporting a 3 day beard and I was itching to give this handle n razor a run to see how it felt overall. Once I loaded the blade I actually felt that I was handling live high explosives......... I did not want to drop it! I had to make sure my hands were free of any lather and that I had a slip free grip on the handle.
I proceeded to go WTG then XTG with a touch up for a final pass going WTG again. I was very close to BBS but I was starting to get some slight irritation on my neck so I decided that was good for now.
I disabled the warhead and placed the razor and handle back in the explosives magazine to be ready for another encounter when the time comes.
What did I learn from using a handle that weighs close to half a pound? Pressure Control, Razor to Shave Angle and Firm Grip.
All I really had to do was get the angle correct and actually allow the weight of the razor to carefully fall down my face. I did not need to apply any pressure due to the wight of the handle and as long as I kept the angle at 20* to 25* I would get a nice clean shave.
Basically I just supported the weight of the handle and used my elbow for a good stable, linear movement.
Thank you for looking,

I can't see this being practical as it is not balanced properly with the head.
Perhaps you would find this handle more to your liking? The Torpedo handle on top and the Torpedo Slim on the bottom
