I'm in search of the best aftermarket Mach3 handle since I find the stock one a bit too skinny. I really have my eye on the Bolin Webb R1 handle but I am open to all suggestions. Any information will be appreciated.

I have a gently used  Edwin Jagger Chatsworth Imitation Ebony Mach 3 Razor currently not in use. 
I may even have 2 probably cheap counterfeit Amazon cartridges.  Those cartridges are the reason I went to DE shaving.

If any interest let me know. Happy to follow the B/S/T rules for any sale.

I always liked the Bolin Webb handles you mentioned - great colors and like the Union Jack version.  Muhle, Merkur, others look nice.  Some brush or pen artisans may have Mach 3 custom handles.

Check out Will Hodges of Tactile Turn.  Will is a machinist with his own machine shop in Texas.  He machined the solid brass pen which is the 2017 TSN LE Pen.  You can read about that pen here:

Will Hodges of Tactile Turn makes sells some very nice looking handles that he makes for the Mach 3 & Fusion, the Pruner and Parer razor handles.  The Mach 3 line is called the Pruner and is available in two models. The stainless steel Pruner is made of 316L stainless steel and weighs 3 oz (86g) and is the one I ordered. The titanium Pruner is made of 6AL-4V titanium and weighs 1.80 oz (52g). Both Mach 3 models look the same and measure in at 5 inches in length and 0.5 inches in width. I ordered the stainless steel Pruner as I prefer heavier handles. 
I dont use Fusions but their Fusion line is the Parer. The stainless steel Parer weighs 4.9 oz (138g), & the titanium one weighs 3.1 oz (88g). They measure in at 5.39 inches in length and 0.62 inches in width.

I got mine in and it is indeed very nice and It feels great in the hand. I also like the container it came in as it will serve as a nice travel container.
