Greetings Shave Nook,

In anticipation of the upcoming release of the Mongoose razor - stainless steel SE - I want to pick up an additional stainless steel handle for some variety. Unfortunately, I am late to the party and missed out on the beautiful UFOs that many of you acquired, and I am wondering if there are any other vendors that are making handles with the lovely bulldog or British aristocrat knurling I have seen on Raphael's work. Any guidance or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I was in contact with Juan, and he told me it was a temporary situation.

While nowhere near as cool as a UFO, I plan on using my Ikon SE handle for the above purpose (when it happens).

+1 I really like the look of this handle! I wish it was a tad shorter though.

Thanks for all of the comments and recommendations. I did break down and buy an iKon bulldog from Phil, but would love to get my hands on one of the UFOs. If I cannot make that happen I might have to follow Jan's advice and have a custom made. Of course, first order of business is getting my hands on a Mongoose. ; )

I had been eyeing the Feather AS-D1 handles. They look nice and look to be of good length. I wonder if they sell those individually somewhere.
