We have finally done it! We have produced a razor handle in solid .925 Sterling Silver. This one is made for the King Cobra and utilizes the tapered end piece from the stock handle, but with the addition of a LAW King Cobra SE-to-DE adapter and a custom end piece, it could also be used with any standard DE razor head. This is definitely a premium razor handle! 13mm diam. 2.7" long & 2.8oz w/o the tapered end piece; 3.25" long & 3.9oz w/ the tapered end piece. Length and diameter are identical to the stock handle. [Made 12/6/14] Price: $250.

We have already made a similar handle out of 316 Stainless Steel. We will also be making similar handles out of titanium and possibly even magnesium.

The photos were difficult to take. If you didn't already know, silver (Ag) is the most reflective element known to man.

Here's a picture of it on a King Cobra razor next to the stainless steel version and the stock handle. You will notice that the sterling silver is a little lighter in color. It is very special.

Wow...that's Next Level! I guess all that's missing are the Swarovski crystals for knurling and added grip...

Fine work gents...it's a stunning piece of craftsmanship. I'm sure it will be on the SOTD thread soon enough.

I forgot to mention that, if you prefer some sort of design on the handle, we can add a design of your choice (within reason and our capability) after you purchase the handle.

I'm familiar with titanium as a handle material choice. Magnesium is a different option that I haven't seen before. What qualities/characteristics does magnesium bring to the table?

The Silver does look stunning. I presume it will need a bit of extra tender loving care though as it ages. Is that correct?

After iron and aluminum, magnesium is the 3rd most commonly used structural metal due to its lightness. Magnesium is a third lighter than aluminum. It can also double as a fire starter if you're stuck in the woods with a premium razor handle. Biggrin

As far as sterling silver goes, I have worn a sterling silver wedding band for about 15 years of my 17-year marriage (I preferred it to the white gold ring I started out with), and it has worn well. I have worn it while renovating houses, building decks, clearing timber, working on cars, etc. If you don't do all these things with the razor handle, it should wear even better than my wedding ring. As long as it is used often, it will not tarnish either. If it is allowed to sit and tarnish, a little silver polish gets it right back to a nice shine. This will become an heirloom treasure for some shaving enthusiast. I look forward to finding out who that will be.

Thanks for the info Troy. How does magnesium compare to stainless steel and titanium when it comes to strength/hardness.

Both sterling silver and magnesium are softer metals than stainless steel or titanium.
