Hey Guys,


So I had an Idea why not match the DLC head with the handle? So I googled around found some ideas for paints that would work and I settled on Rustoleum Flat Black to Match the DLC head. I wiped it down with nail polish remover and air dried then began to tape of important edges so no paint drip or bleed. I sprayed it a few times with some light coats. After all the coast were done I then proceeded to bake it in the over on at 150 degrees to cook the coat, I suppose you don't have to do that but I did anyways.

Took all the tape off and well I was done, except for using a toothpick to scrape out the rings on the bottom.

I figured the DLC razor and handle needed some spicing up so let me know what you guys think.

I did that in a different way....used black heat shrink tubing 1/2 inch dia and used my hair dryer and a match to shrink it nice and tight....just cut,shrink and cut off any rough edges with a SE blade....only takes a few minutes.Cool

I figured after the fellow member mentioned he did it with heat shrink wrap on his weber handle I figured since I painted it I mine as well give it ago with the heat shrink wrap,

So what I did is I bought 1/2" Black heat shrink wrap from the store slide one piece down the top of the razor to the end of knurling for the handle took a blade slide it all way round to make even circles.

Then I took another piece and did the bottom where the TTO area would be and slide it up with about half an inch to cover it cut it off and I was done.

To heat it up it recomends using a heat gun, well I didnt have one so I used a lighter and kept the flame off the wrap and the handle to avoid burning it.

I just spun the handle around and heated it evenly and it seemed to have turned out not to bad.

Seems nice a grippy dry, not to sure how well its going to work with soap on it but we will see.

So far I like the look of this better then my painted version, but I did try to cut the rings on the bottom to go around like I did with the painted version but the shrink wrap wasn't working to well so I re did it and just left it all black at the bottom.

So I figure Im done trying to customize my weber razor for today. Thanks for the wonderful comments gentlemen much appreciated.

Excellent grip...don,t have picture capability..but try it and you can always cut it off if you don,t like it...does no lasting damage in any way.

I think thats the best idea so far to customize the razor handles to match the DLC head, Thanks for the idea Harvey, It kept me busy this afternoon and it spiced up my DLC handle.

Great job on the handle Jordy. I personally think the paint looks cleaner, but the shrink wrap is a neat idea as well. I would like to know what you think of the "grip" with the shrink wrap, once wet and slippery.

I used it last night and it was great with the Shrink wrap it actually provided more grip and wasn't slippery at all, it was very comfortable to use. The one great benefit to it is, If you don't like it its not permanent you can just cut it off and you're razor is back to new again no marks or scratches.
