I just got in a nice stainless steel handle. It's an Apollo. I got it on Amazon for just $24.99. It is 3.8" long, 0.5 inch. diameter, 99 grams. Nice feel to it with deep knurling.
Here is a picture of it on my Parker head.

That's a great price for a stainless handle... looks great. (Though I wish the logo were not where it is -- might that rub out?)

Am I mistaken or is that the same design as one of the Parker handles, only this one is in stainless steel?

You mean the Parker 91R Three Piece Heavyweight 91R Safety Razor?

Sweet handle, I like it. They make a nice stand in stainless too it seems. Better than the WSP doorstop I got from Amazon- horrible plating.

Although I don't mind the logo - yes, with some polishing the logo will disappear ....

Nice handle and at a very good price point. There is nothing like a 0.5 inch dia. handle with real cut knurling/checkering to give you a secure confident grip while shaving with a DE. I use a similar handle, Ikon Bull Dog, on my Muhle R41 and love it. Enjoy.

Polished my Apollo handle (well - only the parts that are not knurled) today - the logo disappeared ! Biggrin
