No.

And IMHO stay away from the Grande handles.
I like a robust large handle - but I bought and sold my R89 Grande as fast as possible, since the large handles feels hollow and unsolid in my hands. I prefer the smaller regular version in this case because the Grande is just a blown up even more hollow version of the standard size handle.

If you want an XL handle for your Muhle/Edwin Jagger head, get a UFO Kaiser or even larger a Goliath UFO handle - these handles dwarfs the Muhle Grande handle both in size, quality and feel by many times.

I agree the Muhle handles feel very hollow. I had a Rose Gold that I sold and replaced it with a Weber Bull dog Handle. Couldn't be happier.

I have seen a Grande Handle in person and it is definitely gorgeous but not worth it IMO. And I've never seen a Grande in Rose Gold. It would be wise for Muhle to start producing them...

Totally agree stick to a sold handle such as stainless. Much better feel and grip.

The Mühle handles are my slickest and least favorite, both on my R41 and R89.
