Throughout the past 5 or so years I have feel in and out of love with many handles and heads. For me, I love the vintage heads, open and straight bar, alike. My fancy lends itself towards a longer handle like the Barberpole, EJ Chatsworth, 1st gen Tradere...with a hefty girth and a perfect balance. Who else is with me? Who out there prefers a smaller HD type of short handle?

I really like the Weber Bulldog handle and the Wave handle. Both have great heft with the edge going to the Wave for grip.

On heads I'm going to go again with the Weber. I love my polished head soooo much and now have a DLC on its way to me to compare. Overall Weber is my winner!

Personal favourite as of now would be the Muhle R41 (2013) head with a Bulldog short handle. The weight and larger diameter coupled with the great knurling of the Bulldog handle makes this combination work well for me.

I only have one razor, the 34c, so I literally cannot shave without it, unless I can get a kitchen knife shave ready!

I don't know about live without, but the Above the Tie Kronos R2 is a great handle/head combination for me.

I love my Feather AS-D2 handle. The knurling is grippy. The heft is substantial. The length works with my hand anatomy.
That's my choice. Thumbsup

Lately I've really been taking a shine to the combination of a Weber bulldog clone with either a New Improved or NEW Deluxe head. I have a clone of the longer Weber Classic from the same guy but as yet I still prefer the shorter and thicker Bulldog.

But can't live without?? No. Rolleyes

The Weber Classic is a great handle, and I much prefer it on the PH over the Bulldog. The RazoRock Stealth Slant is a very nice handle also. I didn't think I'd be a fan of the light weight, but it turns out I love it. I'm not a huge fan of mixing handles and heads, though, so I normally use the stock handle - as is the case with the Weber and RR Stealth. Neither of those I would want to give up though.
