UFO Razor Handles - UFO TiTAN FINE is ON SALE
www.uforazorhandles.com
http://www.uforazorhandles.com/2014/09/u...-fine.html

Almost two years ago, in October, 2012, UFO TiTAN handle was born.
And now, in September, 2014 the new handle UFO TiTAN FINE has born.

UFO TiTAN FINE : Titanium. 85 mm long. 15/15 mm caliber. 58 gr weight.
Thread is M5x0.8. Gillette heads fit well, including the NEW head. The neck ends to 8.5 mm to fit perfectly.
New knurling: It has the new UFO aristocrat knurling released in the UFO Colibri. But it is knurled at reverse than the Colibri and all the UFO handles until now. Barberpole is twisted to left, like the British aristocrats, not to right. This new aristocrat knurling is finer, closer to Gillette aristocrats. Very classy. Also, in this metal, knurling is very clear. However, this handle has enough grip to handle safely. This new knurling in this caliber handle and reverse knurling, are special features for this handle. Will not be in other handles this caliber for now.
Caliber and Weight: This handle is ideal for those who like the 15 mm caliber, but with a light weight. In steel, a handle like this, at 85 mm lenght weighs 103 g, and in Titanium, around 45% less.
Unnumbered Open Series. Repeatable Model on demand.

Only one unit per person can be ordered, Shipping will be registered mail, standard delivery, and a signature will be required at delivery.

There may be some units, but very few, 100 mm lenght, 72 gr weight.

NOTES:
  • Although in some photographs the handles can be viewed mounted in different heads, this is for illustration purposes only. The heads are not for sale nor included in prices. Only the handles.
  • The handles are hand machined on a lathe. Although reported weights and measures, it is possible small differences of tenths in each unit. Is it about the craft. No two pieces are exactly alike.

No. It is standard M5x0.8 thread ... to fit most traditional 3-piece razors; Cobra Classic is a 1-piece razor, and King Cobra is 2-piece but with different threading.

Well, I guess I have been blessed with UFO Karma. I just traded a gorgeous Kaiser short to a friend in need when I have been searching for months for a TiTan, and here we have it. Excited, and 100mm option to boot!!

I think the 15mm diameter and the lighter weight than stainless steel is going to be great on my Mongoose. Really looking forward to getting this handle.

Yes. All the handles ready have been assigned.
Rafael will make more. Rest of people should wait some time. But only one XL per bar, at the end. I apologize. He has decided to do this way. Men, orders will be open until date announced, but there are a lot of orders now. I do not know if all the orders will be able be fulfilled.

That is one beautiful handle. I absolutely love the knurling on my Colibri (whenever I go in the bathroom, I almost always pick it up to admire itSmile The TiTAN handle, although truly a work of art, is a little too thick for what I like. Rafael is a master artisan, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to care for one of his Colibris. Some day I hope to have another UFO find me, just not this one.
