This is a good, chunky, heavy razor.
GOOD - It's beautifully made, very high quality. It looks the part and does the job. It's a three-part razor, which means that it's a little more difficult to switch out blades, but on the other hand, soap and gunk can't get into the handle.
CHUNKY - This is a razor made for people with large hands. It's got a pretty large handle which makes it easy to handle for people with large hands like me. If you've got small hands you might find it a tad unwieldly.
HEAVY - It's a matter of personal preference of course, and I like my razors on the heavy side. This helps with maintaining the right pressure since all I do is set the razor against the skin and let its own weight do the job.

This is a very handsome razor that will definitely impress in your bath. Good balance between a hollow and light handle with a heavier head. Although the Edwin Jagger uses a similar head and gives a comparable shave, you pay here for the Muhle name and repuation, not to mention the spectacular detailing and chrome work. The longer handle on the Grande version is probably worth the few extra bucks as it gives you a better grip area to work with.
