    The hardest wearing handle has to be stainless steel , Dovo sell an all steel razor.
    However, many don't like the balance of razors with steel scales (handle).
    Plastic scales are reasonably indestructible.
    The most important thing is the blade, as everyone has already said and it needs to be shave ready, so buy from a reliable vendor who will hone it prior to purchase.

    I'm going to try to simplify this. Any common scale material you choose stands a very good chance of outlasting the blade itself. The scales are not likely to wear out in the life of your boyfriend. If you drop a razor, the blade is much more likely than the scales to break. The longevity of the scales for the most part just isn't an issue. Personal taste regarding the aesthetics of the scales is.
