Maggard V3A head with Matador Toro Mastiff handle..Shaves like a Merkur 34C HD, maybe a notch more aggressive. Blade alignment & plating quality are surprisingly good and appear to be a great match, hope they last![Image: JVpyn5I.jpg][Image: 8HANib2.jpg][Image: D2BKrE0.jpg]. [Image: sj8EMPa.jpg]

The V3A is a really nice looking head, and it's advertised a "very aggressive" razor, but I was a little underwhelmed by its aggression. Not a bad razor at all, but I didn't find it "very aggressive." At its price point, it is a good value for a medium-aggressive razor.

Looks great!  I too have that gunmetal Toro Mastiff and just ordered the Maggard Razorheads from the sale that they currently have at Maggard Razors!  I'll try that combo out.

Thanks,
Rod

+1, V3A is docile...honestly love the handle/gunmetal look and the whole combo is <$50 for both Matador razor and V3A head, great deal!

Nice set up. I enjoy that handle myself and have it attached to my Damaskeene. Had to drill & tap the threads on the head to make it work. Eventually it will make its way to Delta Echo for some custom work.

Razor Blades & More...as far as I can see, they don't sell the handle separately. But the head that comes with it is very good IMHO, even though it's only available in polished/chrome finish.
