Those are really nice handles! Is there any additional cost for let's say a 4" long handle? I like weight the longer handle provides.

Prices are good for 4 inches also

Wow! That aluminum is 4mm wider in diameter and 2mm longer yet it weighs the same as my titanium. So tempting to add that option to my current Helix. 

Great work Toby! I could not be happier with my Helix and I'm sure others will be pleased with theirs as well.

I have a couple of Toby's handles and they are beautiful, but these helix handles are amazing. I can see I need to be placing an order soon.

I love that combination = dream razor! I just received my handle today and I was truly surprised (all positive of course).

Will post pictures when I can find my camera but, mine was the Aluminum 19mm x 95mm x 57 grams from a couple of posts above - nice handful and not too long. I have large hands but, I truly appreciate a stocky short handle just as much as a long heavy one. I paired mine with an iKon head - completely satisfying shave and love the looks! My wife digs it as well which was neat because wasn't sure if she would like this style. Thanks again to Mr. Toby/ Triad - I hope you keep up the lovely work / hobby!

I really love the thick diameter and did a very soapy wet hand test and the handle is one of the best which flies in the face of my experience and preconceived notions of this type of design vs. ikon bulldog knurling ( I still love the Bulldog handle btw).

Last one for now - if you are on the fence about one of these custom handles - get off the fence now lol!

Learning through pictures Toby... I didn't realize the anodizing technique can be controlled that way, the last 2 photos are downright sexy!
