Like Double-Edged Safety Razors Ranked by Weight this resource lists the weights of DE razors. Here we list only short-thread three-piece razors, which may be useful to anyone looking to combine a particular head and handle.
Because manufacturing tolerances and scale calibration, actual weights may vary by about 1-g in either direction.
