Does anyone know of any other (short handled & heavy) DE's other than the Merkur HD, Merkur slant, Parker 97r, & Parker 94r. I like a heavy razor and a 3 inch handle.

Check out some of the Maggard razors with short handles. They have pretty good weight to them and are very inexpensive while producing excellent shaves.

The Ikon Tuckaway handle is just shy of three inches and can be matched with the head of your choice.

The Weber Handle is about 3" iirc. Get it and any 3 piece head you like.

Greist shaving makes a heavy fat brass handle for three piece razors. Sounds like it would fit your need.

They have not made a razor handle(s) in at least a year and a half maybe longer. It seems they are only restoring brushes. Too bad because their brass and stainless handles were excellent.

I just checked and my Maggard MR3 handle is just shy of 3 inches. It has good heft and can tae additional weight (BBs etc) as the bottom of the handle unscrews.

ATT Atlas, iKon Shavecraft, and RazoRock Little Bastone.

The RazoRock is only $20 as well - definitely worth it. The OC head is similar to Pearl, which is pretty aggressive, and the standard head is just a tad more aggressive than the EJ/Muhle head. Either one is great, especially for the money.

Sorry, I didn't realize that. I have one of their stainless and their brass handles and really like the weight of them.

The new Ikon Tuckaway handle is a good fit for what you said you like. Bull goose Shaving has a few cool options of heads on that handle.

Maybe not as short or as heavy as what has been mentioned above, but the Aristocrat #16 has a pretty short stance. I believe the #16 comes in at 82g and 3 inches.

Its a dream to shave with, a fantastic piece of shaving history and one hell of a good looking razor!

+1. Heavier, thicker and grippier if you get the bulldog version. They're just a hair longer than something like the merkur - still one of my favorite razors to use.

The Progress short handle version is very stout, probably one of the heaviest out there next to the Futur.

I would love to have a modern adjustable and have thought of buying the short handled progress but I've read that it has alot of inconsistencies and that it could be built better. Which brings me to the short handled mergress. I signed up to be notified by Lee's Safety Razor's when they became available again but that was nearly a year ago. Perhaps they are no longer being made. I guess I'll have to try the B/S/T forum here, the only problem is no one wants to get rid of them (which IMHO means they are designed & built well). Confused
