I find razor handles with a square cross-section providing more control. A hexagonal handle does the same. I realize round razors are much easier/cheaper to manufacture, but I wish there were square ones available as well.

Huf, I am not sure if you have seen his work in the other thread(s) but Toby makes a number of hex custom handles.

Works of art IMHO...

Here is an example of some of his latest...

Thank you, Kevin. The hex looks very solid and modern. Maybe a little bit heavy, but it is the matter or preference. So, it is just me who thinks a flat handle gives more control? For example, most of vintage injectors had a flat razor.

Toby uses titanium as well for those that don't want the heft of a stainless

I am the owner of the handle linked into the pics. Is made of brass and is 126 grams I believe. Or maybe it's 136. Regardless it's heavy. Toby can do a lot with a hex handle from what I have seen. I'd get him to make u one in titanium .
