Designed and manufactured by Wet Shaving Products (WSP) the “El Grande” was meticulously crafted by experienced wet shavers to be the ultimate balance of performance and affordability.
The handle is a hefty 14 mm thick, so the El Grande feels great in your hand. The 85mm (3.34″) long handle is lathe turned. A deep knurl pattern is carved into the metal to prevent slippage when wet. Many handles have a shallow knurling, but this knurling creates deeper grooves for superior grip. At 3.34″, this razor features a shorter, more traditional handle length than you’d find on today’s cartridge razors, like the Gillette Fusion.
The Model 89 head is molded from the same high-quality Zamac used in more expensive English and German brands, like Merkur. The head and handle are then polished by hand on a buffing wheel. The Zamac is plated with copper, then nickel, then chrome. Although in terms of pricing this could be considered a budget razor, you won’t be able to tell from the materials, craftsmanship, or shave quality.
The El Grande has a 3-piece design. There is a head, plate, and handle. The razor blade sits between the plate and head and the head screws onto the handle securing them all together.
