Just a tip...I see some people saying how they cross thread or even strip the threads when they get a new handle or a new razor...try this it works for me....Get a Q-tip and put a few drops of good oil on the threads of the head and the handle...I screw the Q-tip into the handle and make sure it is well lubricated...sometimes there is machining debris left and the oil will flush it out...then GENTLY try the handle and NEVER force it...it either fits or it doesn,t....hold the top plate to the head and tighten gently...the pressure of your holding the head is safer then showing how strong you are....remember this is a razor not a 2 X 4.

Thanks for the tip, Harvey. I had never contemplated this, but I also have never had an issue with coupling a handle to a razor head. Smile

Thanks, Harvey. It's also a good reminder that many of our shaving articles - brushes, razors, etc. - do not arrive truly "shave ready."

Good tip indeed. I have found metal shavings on a few occasions after unscrewing the handle from the head on a new razor.
