Good afternoon everyone. I was recently lucky enough to receive from Raphael and Juan the world's very first Super Duplex SS razor handle. I figured you guys would appreciate some pictures, so I tried to get as artsy as I could with my iPhone. These pictures do this work of art absolutely zero justice. Raphael, please do not stop making beautiful razor handles for the world!

Friend, keep it forever. Watching your pics, now I know why Rafael wanted to keep for himself. It is the first try, but succesful. He had just one sample bar, for one try. No more than a few inches, 5 or 6. And he did it again! Making history!

We do not know other precedents. Maybe is the first on the world made in this steel. Rafael said knurling in this steel is more definite, sharper than 316L, closer to the knurling on Titanium. He said this handle is a real beauty. Even his wife said to me the day that the handle was born, that she had in hand a real beauty, a cute thing, when I was at phone with her, at the same moment that Rafael was coming from workshop, with the handle in hands.

Enjoy it in good health, my friend. Two days shipping with UPS from Sevilla to your home has been a good shipping time also.

The UFO Super Duplex and LA Shaving BBS-1 razor head pairs very nicely. You've got a great setup there with the Aesop bowl and Chubby 2.

That is a fantastic handle and razor!! I haven't had the best timing to be able to purchase a UFO handle, but I do own a LA Shaving BBS-1 razor and it's one of best finished razors I have seen. The pictures of the knurling on the UFO handles is remarkable to say the least.
