You can also buy just the ARC head if you so choose.
Wish all vendors would do this.

Woohoo. Although it will be about a month before I will be able to use it since I am part for the blade test.

Only the ARC head models are available, I am waiting for a DLC Sad

Weber makes a fantastic closed-combed razor that is a bit more aggressive than the Merkur IMHO. They have been unavailable for awhile now, and tend to sell out very quickly.

They have the only DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) or ARC (Advanced Razor Coating) razors I am away of.

Their handles are some of the best as well.

I already have the DLC Weber, but was wondering if the ARC gave a different shave than the DLC or if the two are so similar not to bother.

The DLC is one of my favorite razors.

I will be purchasing the DLC and Bulldog handle when they are available again. I have never heard such consistent praise for one product.

What is the improved classic handle?

I have the DLC and it's currently my favourite safety bar DE razor. It's smooth and effective.

I have both and the shave feels the same as far as effiency. The ARC feels a little slicker but the DLC feels more comfortable on my face. For that reason if I had to pick one it would be the DLC. I do believe I am in the minority on this though. It seems most guys that have both prefer the ARC. You can't go wrong with either. As always, YMMV. Huh

I asked Ed the same question and his response was:

"The classic handle is 3 7/8 inches long and a little thicker than our previous version. The knurling is a bit more aggressive. It will have the nice polished finish like our bulldog handle. Price will be around $40 and we will list exact measurements on the website when they are ready for sale."
