Well, didn't think it would happen to me but it did. I was face lathering some Tabac with my CH2 and whoops!...slipped out of my hand. I remember there was some lather on the handle affecting my grip. And then either my wife or daughter distracted me with a question about who knows what. There it was on the bathroom tile, handle cracked and knot exposed. Confused 

For science, I had to of course share pictures.

On the bright side, there are only three shards and they seem to fit back together cleanly. Some epoxy should be all that's needed. And the break was on the backside as well. From the front, you would not even know there was an issue.

Thats too bad but seems like a perfect knot donor for a custom handle now.

Good idea. If the handle was not salvageable, I would definitely explore that.

It will probably be difficult to even tell that it was broken once you have it back together. Please post photos.

Wow, Rob! That is very unfortunate!

You may have a difficult time epoxying the pieces together to make the handle as stable as you may need.
Good luck with it, though.

On a side note, I have done this to two of my Chubby 2 Supers to extract the knots.  Shy

My condolences . Thanks for posting as sometimes my mind can wander when I'm shaving (not that that happened to you) and could easily result in something like this for me.

Sorry for your loss but maybe you can send it back to Simpsons for replacement/repair?

That really stinks to see that happen before your eyes and cradling the left over pieces of a prized chubby 2. But I would see it as an awesome opportunity to employ one of our wonderful 'in-house' artisans' skills Smile good luck.

On the educational side, that's a great cross sectional show of a hand tied knot!

Remove the knot.  Glue the handle back together, fill it full of epoxy (color tinted close to handle color), redrill and use it as a razor stand.

Thank you for sharing.  Always wanted to see the knot from the inside.  Hopefully it goes back together cleanly.
