3 Piece

The 3-piece safety razor design dates back to the original Gillette model safety razors introduced in the early 1900s.  Unlike the 2-piece razor that has the base of the cutting head attached to the handle, the 3-piece razor allows the base to be removed as well.  The parts are: (1) top of cutting head, (2) base of cutting head, and (3) handle. Most of the handles on these types of razors are solid metal, with threads at the top so that the cutting head can screw on securely.  These razors typically have no moving parts or knobs, so they are easier to clean and maintain over the years.
