Hi lads,I have just taken delivery of a Muhle Grande,and the handle sometimes takes a few attempts to screw back onto the top plate,it feels as if the threads are starting to cross so I stop,undo it and start threading it together again,has anybody else had this problem,or have I just received a dodgy one.
Thanks.
Sam.

Thanks for that,Claus, I sent an e-mail to "The Traditional Shaving Company" here in the uk this afternoon,they e-mailed me back saying they would happily replace it,I just thought I would ask if anybody else, had, had any similar problems.
Thanks again.
Sam.

I thought mine was a bit "sticky" when screwing down and unscrewing, but I don't believe the threads were crossed.

Happy to see you received a prompt response. I'm still waiting in regards to a razor from another manufacturer that arrived faulty...

I oil the threads of new razors with hair clipper oil. It keeps the threads clean and smoothly operating.

First, I clean both male and female threads with alcohol, then apply some machine oil. Threads of my DE89 did not need any cleaning though. I think Muhle should have nice threads as well.

Mine did the same but the threads were not crossed and there wasn't any obvious reason. Used some Tough Glide on the threads and after a few dozen r&r of the handle things bedded in. My Ikon OSS, for which I bought an extra Bulldog handle, did the same. No concerns after a breakin period.
