My wife picked up some shrink tubing from her work and I used it on the Twig handle and now it works like a charm. The Twig is still a bit over priced in my opinion but the shrink tubing did the trick and this morning I gripped it like a pro! Well anyway, If you get the twig, don't bother paying all that money for the sleeve(plus shipping) but instead use some shrink tubing. I get one shave per half a blade which gives me two shaves per blade so no difference there but really does give a good shave if the scalp is properly prepared. I got two nicks today which is unusual for me so the razor must be working really good.
