It looks like the Atlas handle might not provide as good of a grip as the Korons. I just wanted to check and see if there were and opinions on the handle options.

The big difference is the length...the knurling is excellent on both...

Agree both grip well.

May I answer "None of the Above?"

I prefer a heavy knurl and the grip it provides. I find the Weber and Ikon handles suit my preference for such.

I wish they did the atlas design in the longer handle size.

Have to agree with the Ikon handles.

The old OSS handle is the perfect handle.

But of course YMMV.

I started off by purchasing the Atlas H1 and ended up with a Kronos R1.

IMO, the Kronos is an outstanding handle and my daily driver. I shave my head with it 95% of the time and face half of the time.

Grip wise, the Kronos is much easier to handle in my opinion. The knurling and balance of the longer handle suits my needs exceptionally well. Usually I prefer shorter handles but not in this case.

Aside from the ATT, the Weber PH with bulldog handle is my second favorite.

Stan is a great guy to deal. I can't recommend his work enough.

I don't have the complete razor but I do have the Kronos handle and it is very nice. Great heft and perfect length for me.

I prefer short handles, so the Atlas gets the nod. It's got plenty of grip...

I've owned a couple of Kronos or Titans. The first one I had, it didn't have quite the knurling as the one that is being sold right now. That being said, it would be great if they offered an Atlas handle at the length of the Kronos handle.
