I put the handle from my Maggard MR1 on my Gillette Fat Handle Tech today. The extra “heft”, and even better grip, made for an even easier FH Tech shave than normal.

My second shave using the MR1 handle was even better than the first. I really do think it "Ups" the FH Tech.

I agree about Roopesh, aka slr31. He is a true gentleman and is missed here in Texas!

I just finished my 6th shave with this handle using the same Personna Med Prep blade. All have been excellent. I really like this combination of weight, balance, and handling.
