My Tradere OC is my favorite razor, and the Tradere handle is my favorite safety razor handle, so I bought a handle alone also. I like for the center of gravity to be down in the handle, and I like for the tip of my small finger to rest on the end of the handle, so the length and weight of this handle is perfect for my hand and the heads I use. The idea of a lighter and shorter handle doesn't thrill me. I will buy the SB, but I would prefer to buy a head assembly for the current handle, and hope Tradere will remember that "ideal" weight distribution only exists in one place, and that's in the mind of each individual user. It is a purely subjective evaluation. The popularity of bulldog handles right now is proof of that. I would have preferred they offer a "bulldog" version of their handle alongside the current version, and let the market decide what it wants.
