Funny you should mention that, Elbe - because my next UFO handle purchase will precisely be a Tornado custom made in SS 316 Cool
Did you order a custom or stock Tornado ?

Thanks guys, I just ordered a Fatip Grande in Nickel and Chome to fit my UFO's Cool

The Fatip Gold is sold out everywhere in Europe, that I could find online Undecided

Will order a couple of Mühle heads next week - in gold, chrome and both R89 and the new R41 model to fit my UFO's W00t:yho:

I need to use them all for their first shaves with different heads before I can decide, which one I prefer, but the heavy handles will make the very mild heads in my collection bite just a little bit more......
At least my shave with the UFO Red Bronze and the very mild Ikon OSS head gave me a surprisingly close 3 pass shave this evening, the handle is stout and VERY HEAVY weighing in at 139 grams Thumbup

Next up is a Kaiser and a Tornado in SS 316 Idea
