The WRH7 is a low grip smooth handle that looks great is SOTD photos but is not handy / grippy as the WRH2.  IMO.

WRH3 here, so far, by a large margin for me.

Interesting.  There's a 0.22" length difference and a 12g weight difference between the WRH3 & WRH7.  In what way(s) do you feel those differences are perceptible in terms of the user/shaving experience?

I'm not asking because I want to "challenge" your opinion (I have not used a Wolfman, yet) -- I genuinely want to know.  We all know 1mm in knot diameter or loft can make a big difference in terms of a shaving brush's performance, so I would expect the same to be true of razors and handles.

In my experience, the WRH7 is not only beautiful, but has a very comfortable, secure grip.  By far my favorite.

I've only ever tried the WRH2.

I like it a lot.

I'm interested in the Common Bar style he has posted pictures of.

WRH7 is a perfect fit for me. I'm partial to the brushed finish.

I have all of the listed handles; differences are relative; all are superb; for me it boils down to tactile preference.  I like the ridges and grooves of the WRH3; keep in mind I ordered all handles at 90mm.

I don't own a Wolfman, nor have I ever used a Wolfman, but I have saved images of the LABBS and the other diamond themed handle with a completely smooth bottom 1/4" or so (not sure of the official name, but the diamond areas are elongated, as if they're pulled and stretched).  When I think of Wolfman as art, I think of those two handles.  I voted for the WHR1 because of its classic perfection.

i have a 1,2 and a modified 2 that looks more like an aristocrat handle. i've been using a 7 this week and have a 7 and modified 3 coming.

for function, nothing beats the 1. i love the look of the 7 and the modified 2. the darwin is a real looker and i bet it would look great on a timeless or a blackbird.

Can you show a pic? I noticed the 2 looks like one and was debating asking James if he might do an Aristocrat-style like UFO and Triad.
