The black and chrome handle is textured for a sure grip while shaving, even if your hands are wet. Also, the extra heavy weight of this razor provides a great feel, and is preferred by many shaving enthusiasts. This particular razor has a two door type opening known as a “butterfly” that, with a twist of the handle, opens to make changing out blades a fast process. This mechanism is a popular design with some serious vintage vibe. The hinged plates can get clogged with soap so be sure to clean out your razor often to keep a smooth shave every time!
