On the new Plisson web site ( http://blaireauxplisson.com/en ) there is a new handle available, at least I have never seen it before. If someone has used a Joris like that what is your opinion about the handle?

Looks similar to the Joris Major Royal Shave used to sell

I also noticed that last night. The gold one caught my eye.

Yes, it's an updated version of the Major (as stated, formerly sold by Royal)...

I actually much prefer their traditionally styled handles as opposed to this "new" one...

+1 Their original handles are some of the most beautifully made handles I have seen.

Thanks for the answers everyone. I must say it doesn't look all that appealing to me, the grip on my traditional Joris razors is fantastic.

To put it with the usual Dutch finesse, it is plain ugly.
At least to my eyes, it looks like a Frankenrazor.
The handle style does not fit the head at all.

One can't argue about tastes, though!

But I too, would prefer one of their older and beautiful handles instead of this new one. They look so much more classy and grippier.
