I dropped it on to a tile floor, and this is the result.  It's a nifty little razor.  It's easily replaced, but this one was a PIF from a generous TSN member.

Too bad, Ricardo. That's really a shame. Were you enjoying your shaves with the Featherweight?

Maybe you can epoxy the pieces back together...

Looks like a mini "Transformer" to me with those eyes and pointy nose.

Sorry for your loss Ricardo!

Yes.  It's a mild shaver,  which is my general preference.

I'm not familiar with that particular razor, but it looks to me like it could be repaired. It looks like you could whittle a piece of pine (or similar soft wood) to fit in the handle and then glue (epoxy) the two pieces together. Might not be super pretty but I think it would work.

A piece of steel rod and epoxy... drill a hole in the piece of plastic (bakelite?) that is still inside the head, ditto in the handle, and glue the steel rod between the two.

The downside is that it will alter the weight and centre of gravity of the razor, and it's hard to get the two holes to line up exactly. Might be easier finding a donor razor to cannibalise the handle from.

At first glance it looked to me like the handle was hollow. On closer inspection it looks to be solid so your rod approach would be more appropriate.
